Enrique is "People en Espanol" 's sexiest bachelor
http://u.univision.com/contentroot/uol/art/images/ent/fam/2003/09/pa_enrique_mano9_6.jpg

NEW YORK - For People en Espanol, Enrique Iglesias es muy caliente. The Latin crooner tops the magazine's second annual "25 Sexiest Bachelors" list in an issue on newsstands Oct. 3.

He's cited for his "smoldering good looks and successful crossover appeal." Iglesias, 30, has been linked to Anna Kournikova, who is frequently found on "sexiest" lists herself.

New York: Anna Kournikova could be back on court if she continues to keep fit. The Russian tennis star revealed that she plays and works out five times a week and rewards herself with chocolate ice cream.

“I cannot resist chocolate. Regular chocolate or chocolate ice cream. It’s definitely a motivation for me,” Kournikova said in an interview to Slam Sports.

She has not been seen on the international circuit since 2003 when a back injury prevented her from competing at the highest level.

Though determined, the 24-year-old Kournikova was cautious while talking about comeback plans in the fear of the injury striking again.

“I was always one of those players who played better if I played a lot of matches and tournaments in a row. That’s what’s a little harder for me now. I kind of stop and go."

“I play one event a month and it’s hard to get into a routine."

“I never really wanted to make an (retirement) announcement because I still want to keep that option open."

“The only way I want to come back is if I feel 100 % and that I can give my best. I feel there is no reason to come back and play halfway and get injured all the time. I kind of hope and wish I can still come back,” she said.

How would Anna coming back out do Martina? Do you somehow think Anna is going to start winnig slam singles titles suddenly?

I think they are two different people with two very different agendas. Whether Martina comes back is a complex issue, part of which centers around whether there is any reason for her to come back. She has found a nitch in WTT, plus she has her show jumping career, which this year started to take off. She seems to be very busy now and would actually have to give things up to return to the WTA tour.

Anna makes the occasional appearance in a exhibition match, that's all. Her life seems wrapped around her boyfriend.

I think Hingis has proven, with WTT, that she is fit enough to come back in doubles and get to the very top. She went undefeated in both women's and mixed doubles in WTT events. In fact, I was much more impressed with her drubbings of Navratilova in doubles than in singles.

Whether Anna is that kind of match tough or not, I have no idea. She played very little WTT, mostly a few exhibits.

But no one would deny that the reteaming of this pair would sit a lot of fans in the stands once again. I do not expect it to happen, though.

Martina won't come back cos she can't successfully handle the pace of today's game. She doesn't have Justine's power or speed which is why Justine is still playing and Martina isn't. It's too bad cos I miss Martina.

TODD MILLES; THE NEWS TRIBUNE
Published: September 29th, 2005 12:01 AM


Admittedly, this is not exactly your standard high school column.
High schoolers might appreciate it for one reason – I saw Anna Kournikova, the once-prominent Russian tennis star who is on-again, off-again on the Women’s Tennis Association circuit.

Kournikova made an inconspicuous arrival at the Boys & Girls Club’s “Just Takes One” fund-raising kickoff campaign Tuesday.

She was clad in a sleek, vanilla-white outfit, joined by her manager and Kurt Aschermann, the senior vice president of marketing for the Boys & Girls Club of America, at the Tacoma Dome’s Exhibition Hall.

About the time she found her VIP seat at the front table, folks began to take notice. Quick observations:

• Kournikova, 24, is every bit the diva she is portrayed to be in the national media. She is a full 5-foot-10, athletic and rangy. She is a captivating presence – long, blond hair and flashy smile.

• She is predictably photogenic – approachable for posing with elderly people, with military personnel and, yes, even with bright-eyed, wide-grinned teenagers.

But as a high-profile, national spokesperson for one of the best-regarded nonprofit organizations in the country? That took some convincing.

Aschermann, a burly, high-energy Boys & Girls Club official, is the one that brought Kournikova onboard two years ago. She contacted him about committing herself to volunteer work after leaving professional tennis.

Now, a celebrity attaching his or her name to such an organization is something Aschermann deals with often. Some of the other big personalities who work with the Boys & Girls Club include Denzel Washington, Shaquille O’Neal and Alex Rodriguez.

Aschermann was curious when Kournikova phoned him to discuss a deal, so he immediately invited her to one of the clubs in Miami.

“On purpose, I picked an all-Latino and all-African American club,” he told the fund-raising gathering.

Kournikova was supposed to be there for 20 minutes; she stayed for three hours.

And she wasn’t showing kids how to string tennis rackets, either. She sang and danced with the children.

Once a week, she went back to that club to donate time.

Kournikova is now the most-requested celebrity to attend a Boys & Girls Club-related function.

“We’ve never had a commitment like this,” Aschermann said. “We’ve never had someone come to us and be so open to some of our crazy ideas.”

Curious to know the ins and outs of the Boys & Girls Clubs, Kournikova requested she attend the national convention as a club delegate, not a celebrity, so she could learn more about the organization.

It is one thing for a high-ranking official to promote Kournikova. It is another when the 2005 South Sound Boys & Girls Club youth of the year gives her the thumbs-up.

Robbie Guthrie, a 2005 North Mason High graduate, was bestowed that honor Tuesday.

In his acceptance speech, he detailed how easy it was to donate time to a club in Belfair that gave him refuge from plenty of personal tragedy – poverty, homelessness (two homes were burned to the ground), and the difficulty of having cerebral palsy.

One of the people to talk to him before, and after, the speech was Kournikova.

“I was kind of curious to see why a high-profile star is there,” Guthrie said. “When she got up to talk, explaining her story, I kind of believe her (sincerity).”

Listening to Kournikova talk was, perhaps, the most convincing part of her presentation.

It was not so much what she said – she compared her experience growing up in a tennis club in Russia, then Florida, to that of a social club such as the Boys & Girls Club – but how she said it.

There was no prepared speech. She sat on a couch, was asked questions by Aschermann and gave heartfelt responses on a variety of revealing subjects.

She talked about starting her own nonprofit foundation two years ago, but figured that other companies were doing “half-jobs” on behalf of children, so why not thrust her support toward an established entity?

She admitted she was involved in St. Jude’s Hospital through tennis, but found that to be heart-wrenching because it was hard on her to “visit sick children.”

She even joked she could be “laying on a beach” somewhere in her free time, but felt compelled to do something with a sense of achievement away from tennis. In fact, she requested only an airline ticket and hotel room as compensation for speaking in Tacoma.

After the convention Tuesday, Kournikova split to visit one of the local clubs before flying out.

“This is a good, solid young woman,” Aschermann said.

I agree with you that she does have a heart, I think her celebrity status gets in the way sometimes and she puts on a air as a defensive mechanism.

It is not easy always being gracious after being asked by the press over and over again when you are going to win a tournament.

It becomes tiresome.

Besides doing what she is doing know, I do not know if she has other talents other being a model and making pro bono public appearances or for money

She was beaten like a drum by the big babes. And if Graf had not been injured in 97/98 she most probably would be called at most a one-slam-wonder like Myskina, Majoli, Sharapova, Martinez, Kuznetsova.

No.
But I call Hingis' excuse for retiring (career-ending injury) a cheap excuse.
She was beaten like a drum by the big babes. And if Graf had not been injured in 97/98 she most probably would be called at most a one-slam-wonder like Myskina, Majoli, Sharapova, Martinez, Kuznetsova.

hingis had the babes figured out and though she wouldn't have dominated steffi like she did the others, hingis would've beaten steffi, too, in '97-'98.
one slam wonder? hingis? yeah right. in YOUR dreams. :p

I never hated Seles. She was and is a nice girl.

:lol:
Steffi was able to beat Hingis in 2 out of 3 matches even with reconstructed knee in 98/99. What would she have done without injury with her in 97/98?

Hingis should thank her lucky star that Graf's career virtually ended at the end of 1996 ....
