A Page Six-style blind item: Which Grand Slam champion has apparently seduced a prominent New York billionaire?

SOURCE: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2008/writers/jon_wertheim/04/09/mailbag/3.html


My initial reaction was Martina Hingis. Any ideas?

There was story in the early ninetees about Monica Seles and Donald Trump... maybe he is talking about that... not sure though!

monica was once linked to steve ballmer but he's a seattle guy.

would not know who it is - she's the most likely though.

That's as funny as Monica "seducing" someone. When's the last time you saw Monica show sex appeal prior to(if that counts) dancing w/the stars?

You don't have to "show" sex appeal to be sexy.
Certain people carry a lot of mystique and mystery to them.

Sharapova.

I thought of Sharapova too, but i can't see her with a NY billionaire. Does she really have the time? Seles or Hingis maybe.

I heard Donald Trump had something for Gaby, but it was not mutual.

Monica dated a billionaire from MicroSoft, that's not any blind item, it was Paul Allen.


I don't think Martina Hingis would sleep with a skeezy billionaire just because he had money. I think she hits it a lot, but she wants someone young and cute.

Could be Jen, who knows.


Or, we all know Amelie has something for older women, maybe she hooked up with the Queen of Mean before she died, or got it on with Martha Stewart.

Let's find all the billionaires in New York..

David Koch 17 billion 65 years old
Carl Icahn 14 billion 70 years old
Gerard Wertheimer 13 billion 58 years old
Michael Bloomberg 11.5 billion 63 years old
Ronald Perelman 9.5 billion 63 years old
Samuel Newhouse 8.5 billion 78
Rupert Murdoch 8.3 billion 75 years old
Stephen Schwarzman 6.5 billion 59 years old
Henry Kravis 5.5 billion 62 years old
Paul Milstein 4.5 billion
Ralph Lauren 3.6 billion 66 years old
Edgar Bronfman Sr 3 billion 76 years old
Donald Trump 3 billion 60 years old
Leonard Lauder 2.9 billion 73 years old
Ronald Lauder 2.7 billion 62 years old
Leonard Stern 2.7 billion 67 years old
James Simons 2.6 billion 68 years old
Bruce Kovner 2.5 billion 60 years old
David Rockefeller Sr 2.5 billion 90 years old
Stephen Schwarzman 2.5 billion 59 years old
Mortimer Zuckerman 2 billion 68 years old
Maurice "Hank" Greenberg 1.9 billion 80 years old
Herbert Allen Jr 1.9 billion 66 years old
Austin Hearst 1.9 billion 53 years old
Tamir Sapir 1.9 billion 58 years old
Stanley Druckenmiller1.8 billion 53 years old
Charles Dolan 1.7 billion 79 years old
Sanford "Sandy" Weill 1.4 billion


so most of these guys are ancient. I don't see any one of the girls going all Anna Nicole and shacking up with a senior citizen. It must be one of the younger ones. Tamir Sapir is Russian and divorced with no kids. Maybe it is Maria :tape: :lol:

If I made a shortlist of slam champions that I thought could land a billionaire, the name that leaps to the front is Sabatini. I can imagine Jana Novotna in there. Maybe Myskina. Anybody heard from Virginia Ruzici lately?

Dementieva hasn't won a slam so maybe you only have to be a millionaire to snag her.

Any reason why we think its a current star, especially considering the ages of the listed billionaires so far? I'm guessing its someone older - is Austin married?

I immediately thought of Seles. She's been popular lately, retiring and Dancing WT Stars, and she was linked to Trump in the 90's. Also, Monica likes the dollo.

If this is new news then I am going to go with Chrissy Evert. Didn't she just get engaged to that golf dude? Is he even a billionaire?
Anna K, could be it. She's like the money and isn't Enrique's penis small? LOL
Didn't Anna win a slam in doubles? Didn't she?

First off, it could be a man/man thing...anway, I have no clue.

It cant be someone now because we live in the TMZ age where NOTHING like this would stay a secret. It has to be from the mid 90's or earlier.

Its funny, when you picture it in your mind you picture a female player making bedroom eyes at some old guy. But Im sure whoever the woman was(if it was a woman) she probably was the one being seduced/flirted with. And was probably very nervous haha

I think golfer Greg Norman is only a millionaire and I doubt he's based in New York. Those two seems like they're in Florida most of the time.

The blind item specifically says New York billionaire and implies that its a current event involving a Grand Slam champion (could be a former champion possibly in singles, doubles, mixed).

In that case, Hantuchova and Jankovic (both mixed doubles champs), Sharapova, Hingis, Kournikova (doubles)

For the older players, could be Sabatini, Seles, Coetzer, Pierce, Billie Jean King :p (joke).
