Re: Strong is Beautiful Campaign: Masha, Sarin and Vee join.

Now we know why Maria has more definition on her legs and backside.

Do you think Ana will be joining this campaign? Me think not

And where is Stosur? I think she should be here

Interesting that for Serena, they also included her intimidating look and stare

Re: Strong is Beautiful Campaign: Masha, Sarin and Vee join.

What's the point of this campaign, is it, to get more people watching WTA tennis?

Tell young girls you don't have to be skinny (pre-anorexic) to be beautiful.

I think more and more, 8-12 years old think they have to be thin to be considered beautiful.
This would also encourage those who want to avoid sporting activities for fear of gaining muscle to change their mind

But many young girls think this today, that's not really tennis related issue for me. Why, which WTA stars are(pre-anorexic)?

So you're take on it is, it's to encourage more young women to participate in sport but, not necessarily tennis?

Personally; I think it's a total waste of time if they're trying to get more people to participate/sponsor/attend tennis.

It's pathetic if WTA think that this will help get more fans on board. If they want to make more money they need a bigger audience, they will not get it with this stupid slogan. Why is the revenue and tv viewings so low compared to ATP ? Well how many average men do you see in the stands at these womens matches which do not feature Ana,Caro,Maria... Now look at the mens matches where there are as many women watching as there are men. The campaign is funny - strong is beautiful - theres ten or so pics and the only beautiful ones are Caro,Azarenka and a few others and they are the 3 least strong,, no manly muscles, the rest you could photo shop the faces to make them look like a young arnie ! They are scaring potential new fans away rather than getting them in !

You're missing my point (and theirs) a little bit.

The fact that top stars in tennis are NOT super thin and are still thought as beautiful is the point they want to get across.


I don't necessarily think the campaign goal is to recruit tennis players, but to promote healthy young women with positive image of athletic looks.
If the byproduct of the campaign is that more young girls gravitate to tennis because tennis stars tend to be identified more with glamor (and strength), then that is even better.

Yep. I agree with a lot of what you state. I don't know how much this advertsing campaign cost and I haven't seen anything of it, bar online. If it's someone's bright idea of marketing tennis to a wider audience , then they've failed miserably.

You may think this, the WTA stragestists may think this but, Joe Public doesn't.

The only thing that 'gravitates' young people to tennis is, the thought of being mega rich.

But hey! You're probably right and I'm wrong.
