E! True Hollywood Story profiles Anna Kournikova on August 17

Includes commentary from tennis writer Bud Collins, sports agent Bob Williams and biographer Connie Berman. Most of us know who Bud Collins is, I think Williams is the president of Burns Sports & Celebrities Inc. and Berman wrote a children's book on Kournikova.

Anna Kournikova, the tennis player who is much more famous for her beauty than her net play, is profiled.

The episode features archival footage and interviews with the 22-year-old, plus insights from tennis expert Bud Collins, sports agent Bob Williams and biographer Connie Berman, as it details how the Russian native gained international celebrity that eclipsed her tennis game. Despite never having won a professional singles title, Kournikova---the No. 1 doubles player in 1999---has volleyed her way to fame as a sex symbol and earned lucrative endorsements. Also addressed is her current spate of back problems, which could leave her career at match point. (VCR Plus+ 708475)

Talking Who's the bigger star?

Note: They are profiling Porn Star Jenna Jameson this weekend.

Interesting "pecking order", hmmm?

If your fave's coach isn't Richard Williams, that's just her first problem...

I was there when the ALL BLACKS won the World Cup in 2011!!!

This should help Anna's sponsors.
It's a commercial for her calendar, DVD, XBOX, and a lot of other stuff.
And Anna's not even talking to E. They're using old interview clips.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
