no not if you consider the "standard" idea of beauty which is cute, blue eyes, blonde hair, but this is not the only way to be beautiful. People such as Hally Berry and Naomi Campbell are just as good looking IMHO.
Leaving aside pesonal opinions about Anna's supposed beauty, the same (almost the same) impact on the media Anna provoked was caused by lots of tennis players n the fifties when they started wearing "unorthodox" dresses.
Go and check "Blast for the past" for this (and many more ) details!
To my knowledge, a similar impact was the one Andrea Temesvari had just in Italy and, yes, Gabriela Sabatini, in a minor way but all over the world.
selesadmirer - The genral concensus answer to your question seems to be, 'yes'.
Proud to be an American
Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.
Hahahahaha! I don´t think Anna is the most beautiful player ever in tennis. She´s cute and everything, but I think that there many players who are as if not more beautiful than her!! She´s more sexy( the shorts & all) than beautiful to me.
SO, now it's the media whose opinion counts on who is the most beautiful woman.
To me, Anna is not beautiful, & my opinion is just as good as theirs.
Who voted them in as judges of beauty. She is so media hyped, it's getting boring.
