Question In sports history has their been any topic more boring than Anna K?

Have any player's positive and negative attributes ever been discussed to death more than Anna Kournikova's in the entire history of sports?

Have more articles ever been written saying the exact same thing as hundureds of other articles have already said, without getting chopped by the paper/web site's editor?

in the history of sports, have more photographs of the LOSER ever appeared to accompany articles discussing a match, than appear of Anna K?

YOU decide!

If I were to be harsh, I would say it sometimes seems like much ado about nothing.

Can't believe her influence has gone on this long...shows people's fascination with trivialities...

Actually I think the interest is waning if not totally gone.

If she does nothing spectacular this year, the media may just move to thing interesting or hot thing. That's the way life is.

you talk about her quite a bit janie tho you're the woman in the know!

i wonder if the many many male fans she has actually read the same articles written about her over and over again, or if its the more dedicated tennis fans that are exposed to it. and again. and again. hehe

Sonic, you are probably right, I am sure not everyone outside tennis fandom has seen the 15 or so "exclusive" but identical interviews that journalists cranked out this year!

But I probably read them all, Sonic! As I do every article or interview I see of a famous player. Too bad I rarely see any about Justine or Lindsay!

well she's getting more attention now that she's going out with Enrique Iglesias, those two are just a dual publicity act, Anna would've improved more if it wouldn't have gone to her head like that

I hope sweet Danny stays humble too, she just might be one of the next best things soon

I think it's sad that Anna gets attention when she can't even win a tournament. All the media do is make fun of her. I always watch the best damn sports show and they are constantly poking jokes about her. Showing angles of her body and laughing and making grotesque moaning sounds. They even claimed to have a preview of her new calendar. For each month they featured Anna losing first round in every slam all in different positions. Degrading.

Anna is a good player. She really needs to destroy the creature that the media has created. She is a beautiful girl, but I think what she is doing now is selling herself short.
