Which Actress Should Play Your WTA FAVE in a Biopic?

Obviously we have Serena and Queen Latifah, Ana and Catherine Zeta Jones and Marion and Kathy Bates.

But which other actresses would you like to see play your faves if their lives were ever made into a biopic?

Re: Which Actress Should Play Your WTA FAVE in a Biopic?

I think that Samuel L. Jackson should play my favourite player Serena.

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Eva Green should be Petkovic

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood

Halle Berry in Catwoman presents Peakrena

“I'm not used to crying. . . . It's a little difficult. All my life I've had to fight. It's just another fight I'm going to have to learn how to win, that's all. I'm just going to have to keep smiling.”-Serena Williams

Actresses playing athletes is usually a failure, though.

They look nothing alike, and I doubt very much that Serena is your fave.

Only if Courtney Love gets to play Hingis.

And here you are, a black unicorn.
Mythical and mystical since the day that you were born.

I think the rapper Eve, who has dabbled in acting, could make a decent Serena.

Re: Which Actress Should Play Your WTA FAVE in a Biopic?

This thread comes up every couple of years, and there is still no one worthy to portray the divine goddess Dementieva.

I guess Blake Lively could play Vika, though I'm not sure she could handle the demands of shrieking. Probably have to hire a porn actress as a voice double.

A Jo-La biopic, being Swedish, would be filled with so many dark, moody, Bergmanesque shots that it wouldn't really matter who played her.
