Capriati needs to lose weight? She looked pretty damn good to me in LA. Put you glasses on.

The two new Swiss talents, Casanova and Mikaelian I think will both be even bigger tennis players once they get into some better shape.

Another, whom has been discussed in another thread is Rita Kuti Kis.

Alexandra need to tone up. I get the feeling she does not enjoy working out.

Monica needs to lose 30-50 pounds.

Hantuchova needs to gain MUSCLE, which is what she is doing in her offseason with Nigel in South Africa.

Jennifer should be just fine right about now. She was looking fabulous in LA and probably has worked on her fitness even more in the offseason.

Monica could easily stand to lose 20-30 pounds, but 50 is stretching it a bit. She needs the mobility, plus it would help her foot injuries, but I wouldn't count on it much as she has been needing to lose this 20-30 pounds since about 1997-1998.

Meghann doesnt need to gain weight anymore. She already gained some. She was standing next to me and she looked fine. Monica could stand about 20lbs plus some toning (forgive me moni).

Lose - Casanova, Mikaelian, Eleni, Serna, Jennifer(mid section...yuck) Alexandra.

In terms of gain, that is subjective because if one is slim but toned and strong then lbs are irrelevant. So Dani and all the other slim girls should just toned up and do strength training.

VENUS. ANA, TAY TAY. NICOLE. LAURA. KONJUH. MADISON

SERENA. MUGU. VIKA. PETKO. CARO. TIMEA. SVETA. HEATHER. KAIA. TAMIRA. FLAVIA. GEORGI. COCO. LUCIE, SLOANE. PENG. SORANA. ALICIA. JAEDA. CICI. ANETT. DANKA. DONNA. FRANCOISE.

GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN. SHENAY. DINARA. GISELA. SPREM.

When you see jen on tv she looks pretty fat, but when you see her in person its exactly clear its just muscle!! You should see Serena Holy Cow she is built like a brickhouse!! Daniella H is soooo skinny in person, Venus is pretty skinny too!!

Jennifer Capriati: "I feel like my old self again"

I think Moni will probably need to lose 10. She looked very good in the Sanex championships and probably lost 10 of the 20 right there. Still, I agree with BK, it would help with the injuries.

Lose
Allison Bradshaw
Mirjana Lucic
Mary Pierce (she's like Oprah..her weight just goes up and down, up and down)
Alexandra Stevenson
Marie-Gaiane Mikaelian
Aniko Kapros (although she does work damn hard on fitness)
Magui Serna
Natasha Zvereva

I disagree w/Eleni..she has a very stocky build and looks fine to me.

Gain
Cindy Watson
Daniela Hantuchova
Daja Bedanova (im convinced she has an eating disorder..so sickly looking)
Maria Kirilenko/Sharapova (that will come with time though)
Anastasia Myskina
Cindy Watson

People not yet mentioned that could lose a few lbs too include Lisa Raymond, Barbara Schett or Barbara Rittner.

I agree about Monica, Mikaelian, Lucic and Serna. Not so sure about Jennifer, she seems to be in good form.

Hantuchova: gain MUSCLE.......you have to state this correctly.
Monica: I think losing 20/ 30 will do. 50??!! It is not like she is BIg Momma or something??!!

Capriati lose weight?! I think she was fine at L.A., even in better shape than Serena( but that is because Serena was partying and didnīt practice!)
