Okay. This may have been done before. but it came up in another thread.

If a big tennis movie was being made, who would be the best stars to play your tennis favourites (male or female)? In Hollywood style, they can be a little more glamorous than the originals. ;)

Some thoughts of mine were:

Justine Henin-Hardene - Sarah Michelle Gellar
Kim Clijsters - Britney Spears
Jennifer Capriati - Madonna
Serena Williams - Whitney Houston
Maria Sharapova - Gwyneth Paltrow
Elena Dementieva - Nicole Kidman
Linday Davenport - Sigourney Weaver

elena dementieva... i agree with nicole kidman for a big movie star role, but for looks, i have always thought that lena looks exactly like Claudia Schiffer

Aretha Franklin

chanda rubin = regina king (women for "ray" - i think that her name)
venus = brandy
alicia molik = pennelope cruz
maria kirilenko = sienna miller
amelie mauresmo = orlando bloom (sorry - both have strong jaw lines)
capriati = that girl from buffy that is mean - faith (not so fit though)
farina = angelica houston
schnyder = girl from american pie that has frizzy hair and makes funny comments
myriam casanova = aretha franklin covered in cream.

Claudia does look good - I have to admit. But has she ever acted?

I think Venus Williams should be played by little known actress Serena Williams.

That is hilarious :lol: None of those actresses/singers look like the tennis players you have matched them to, especially Kim and Britney :confused: :lol:

For me, I'd have Venus played by Tyra Banks. :wavey:

Oh sh!t, I was finishing my post and all of a sudden I pressed back out of nowhere. :mad:

Xan, are you casting a movie or a concert? :lol:

Anyway, let's see mine:
Justine Henin-Hardenne - It's tough, but based on her recent looks, I'd choose Laura Linney (http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/spotlights/news/2004112301.jpg), if she kept her looks from Kinsey. I know Laura is much prettier than Justine, but she was the closest look-a-like I could think of, and I love both so I'd be pleased.
Maria Sharapova - I think Michelle Pfeiffer (http://www.kinoweb.de/film2000/StoryOfUs/pix/sou5.jpg) fits Maria's looks perfectly (though more Kirilenko's than Sharapova's) but she's old to play such role, so I'd give the edge to Diane Kruger (http://entimg.msn.com/i/150/ce/April04/DianeKruge_Spell_150x200.jpg).
Kim Clijsters - She does look like Princess Fiona :lol: :tape: , but honestly... I'd pick Michelle Williams (http://www.actustar.com/photos/williamsmichelle1.jpg) from Dawson's Creek.
Amelie Mauresmo - That is hard! I don't know any actress with her type of body whose facial expressions have similarities with Amelie's, nor actresses whose facial expressions have a bit of Mauresmo's looks on them have her physique. Maybe Jennifer Aniston's (http://pub.tv2.no/multimedia/TV2/archive/00123/jennifer_aniston_123156a.jpg) face with more of a square jaw and Michelle Rodriguez (http://dyenn.turboblog.fr/photos/uncategorized/fast_and_furious_05_1.JPG)'s kind of body.
Serena Williams - Since she's an "actress", she could play herself, eh? As pointed out, Eve is a good choice. But can she act? Maybe Gabrielle Union (http://www.islandevents.com/artman/uploads/gabrielleunion2_lg.jpg)?
Venus Williams - Geez, I don't know. Maybe Aisha Tyler (http://www.npr.org/programs/waitwait/archrndwn/2004/feb/tyler140.jpg).
Lindsay Davenport - I'm sure a lot of actresses look like her, but I can't quite put my finger on them right now. I think that brazilian actress Julia Lemmertz (http://www.alexandrebjulial.blogger.com.br/34985723.JPG) looks a bit like her, and due the fact that she's a great actress, I'd choose her.

That's it for now. I have other favorites, but I'll choose actresses for their roles later, these are probably the main characters anyway :lol: :devil:

Clea Duvall would make a perfect Amelie Mauresmo. They look so very much alike. Clea Duvall acted in that High School thriller 'The Faculty" playing this loner girl who was branded a lesbian in her high shcool. Clea also had cameo appearances in movies like 'Girl Interrupted, Identity and The Grudge. And plus, Clea is a dyke in real life.

Maria Sharapov's perfect match would be Gywneth Paltrow..the height and the face although Paltrow's prettier.

Kim Clijsters is very pretty and her perfect alter ego would be Drew Barrymore. They both have chubby faces and I bet they could be mistaken for sisters if they were to actually stand next to each other.

Venus Williams- Gabrielle Union
Serena Williams- Brandy Norwood

Oh and Anna Ivanovic's perfect match would be Rhona Mitra (the girl who played this British law student in 'The Practice").
