View Full Version : Is Svetlana K Getting Too Butch For Women's Tennis?

Don't get at me for this, but I was watching Svetlana today against Martina with 2 friends and my dad. And we were all SHOCKED! I have never enjoyed watching Svetlana play: all that sweating and lumbering around the court. So today was the first time I've seen her play for a while, and I'm convinced she is getting even butcher and butcher.

We were treated to the knickers being pulled with her legs astride (Rafael does it so much better with at least some aplomb); the cropped sweaty hairdo; the sweat elsewhere; the legs which are getting thicker and thicker; the blank neanderthal expression on her face; pot belly; and the lumbering swagger walk reminds me of a drunk bovver boy coming out of a pub.

Martina looked femininity personified in comparison today.

Before you all say I'm being horrible and outrageously politically incorrect, my dad when seeing her said: 'that's a bloke'. After 10 minutes he said: 'she's a bloke who's had an operation, or is on hormones, I thought this was a ladies tennis match'. And he left the room because he thought it looked ridiculous. My 2 friends who aren't really into tennis thought it was weird seeing SK like that and unfair on Martina.

I really do think she's the butchest thing I have ever seen play tennis - even Nadal and Federer are more graceful, I can't even think of a butcher player in the mens! It's not about what her sexuality may or may not be, but she's so like a man it seemed unfair that Martina had to play her!

I personally think it will put a lot of people off, and will reinforce stereotypes that all women athletes are like those awful East German shotputters and javelin throwers from the 60s and 70s. So I don't think it's good for women's tennis. So I really do hope that the likes of Maria and Elena and Kim and lots of other players prevent Ms Kuznetsova from winning slams so as not to discredit the game.

If I'm alone in getting a shock today and thinking she's the butchest thing on the court - be it womens or mens - then so be it. You can bad rep me all you like!

Is this post really fair? If Sveta is happy being how she is than that's all that matters. Not everyone wants to follow the corporate image female athletes are pressured into.

I know the original post was an attempt at humour, but I'm being perfectly honest when I say I find Sveta's "lumbering sweaty butchness" the perfect antidote to all the vacuous dangly-earringed prissy prima-donnas that seem to be all over the place at the moment.

I'm so sick of how players look being brought up over and over. They're not there to win any beauty concerts. However, I don't find Svetlana unattractive in the slightest. She looks like an athlete and her bulky quads and hamstrings make her a very good one at that!

i find sveta quite endearing actually, and she doesn't really look very mannish compared to mauresmo/justine/danilidou/schiavone etc, just go to germany and you will find many women who are not athletes who look like her.

in fact, i think sharapova is the manliest, she's 6'3, has little hair, loud, and has the hugest shoulders I've ever seen, just cos she's thin and giggles stupidly a lot she is considered feminine

Different people are built different ways, everybody is different, but I can't picture Sveta in any other way, like say having the body of a Justine with Sveta's face, it would just look weird.If she's happy with the way she looks then we should support that.

erm,actually i sort of agree,its certainly not aesthetically pleasing to watch her play but hey,that's her on-court "persona",and judging from her leisure shots,she sure doesn't look that butch at all.

The original poster most probably doesn't work. That post sounds like it comes from some low-life who lives on a run-down council housing estate! That's the way those people think unfortunately! There's a run-down council estate about 2 miles from where I live and all the low-lifes come to my area to break into the homes etc. Typical council house mentality, that's what that post sounds like! :rolleyes:

Rather unfair thread. Sveta IS an athlete, with an athletic body. Most players do not look that good in the heat of a difficult match. Players like Sveta and Justine are on court to play and win, not to look pretty and sexy.

No I didn't see it. But in her blog she said that she was talking with Sveta in the locker-room for a while, and the commentator said they get on well off-court, so I don't think she would say anything insulting to her :p

Maybe she said to Kuznetsova "you can have my boyfriend if ya like", so no suprises that Sveta was 'disgusted' :p
