But it's not like Kirilenko's appeal is only her look, she's had an incredible season, although she sucks recently, overall it is not just "let's go for the hottest chick" decision made by the organizer, it is reasonable also. Pironkova is Bulgarian so it is also reasonable to choose her.

Cibulkova may be a better choice but their seasons are almost equal in term of quality. But yeah, Kirilenko may be more mainstreamed because of her looks.
