1) Why do they call Hingis and Anna the glamour girls. Personally, I think Hingis is not glamourous at all. Anna is glamourous, Serena is glamourous, Dani is glamourous--Hingis, no.

2) Anna is a really good doubles player. Why do people only critique her singles?! I know she is in the spotlight, she's THE sex symbol so I can't use Rennae Stubbs as a comparison really. But yeah, they're the same person except Anna is hot and sexy and in the spotlight, and at that, she has had 5x better a singles career anyhow. But howcome NO ONE acknowledges her success in doubles?! I am sick of having to explain it to people who bother me for liking her.

I totally agree with the n.2 ;)

Sep 4th, 2002, 01:22 AM
I agree with No. 2, but I do think that Hingis is glamorous.

The girl has finished 1999 has the doubles world champion. Does anyone but me understand the importance of that accomplishment?

Sep 4th, 2002, 01:39 AM
I understand that accomplishment, but it seems that everybody only wants to focus on the singles. I like doubles, and I wish that doubles were still viewed as important as they used to be.

Kournikova is a great tennis player, but Hingis is the greatest. If you play with the greatest, you will win a lot unless you suck, that's a fact.

And Kournikova has enough glamour for the whole team ;)

Canek, Martina has no glamour!!! She has the boringest outfits and don't even lie. If she wasn't a tennis player and you saw her walking down the street, you wouldn't look twice.

Serena, you may hate her clothes, however, is it talked about?! Yes. You critiqued it, even negatively 'cause it is worth talking about--unlike Martina's clothes! They interest you, and in a negative way, but they interest you

Sep 4th, 2002, 08:15 AM
pffffffffffff@ Mrs Guga:rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

yeah i would look twice and thrice at Serena in the street, especially if she is wearing those ridicoulous outfits. glamourous??????

Serena just interest me as tennis player, and nothing else. To me is just a good (right now the best) tennis player, but i don't care her life out the courts, because i don't find her glamourous or interesting at all. I just have responded to your ridicoulous thread because you said something very hilarious:
Martina is not glamourous but Serena is the queen of Glamour. pffffffffffff.:rolleyes: :rolleyes:

keep thinking like this :wavey: :rolleyes:

Why are you arguing that Serena is not glamorous, when you have a strong reaction to what she wears?!

And if she doesn't interest you, why have you typed for me a whole paragraph?!

And if Martina is glamorous, please your almighty, enlighten me as to why!

I mean, she still wears shorts down to her knees for crying outloud!

MH is a swiss word, which is the origin of the word glamor.;):p

especially the "nothing wrong with that part"

Geez! lol! Take it and deal with it

Sep 4th, 2002, 09:33 AM
How come he can't write a paragraph about his feelings on serena's glamour or lack of it, but you can base a thread on martina's lack of glamour, and also reply multiple times talking about it? So blind to your own ways with a child's mentality.

And I'm glad to see that in 2002, a good few years since Anna has been an amazing doubles player, that you finally noticed. Well done!. Need topspin explaining again? Volley perhaps? Serve?

Sep 4th, 2002, 10:05 AM
LOL@Sonic, right on...Mrs. Guga just being naturally tastless.:o

Sep 4th, 2002, 11:14 AM
i think martina i gorgeous -- she has a natuaral style and glamour which is enhanced by the fact that she is such a good, smooth player.

Anna -- well not much needs to be said there

but Serena -- she is definately not glamourous, not in the way she looks or the way she plays. There is nothing subtle or stylish and the williams sisters, especially Serena, they are incredibly boring to watch.

Sep 4th, 2002, 03:57 PM
Serena...not glamorous???

Hello! Who saw Serena in the Versace dress at the ESPYs? Many style mavens (people who are paid to critique so called 'glamour') gave her applause for her sense of style off the court.

You may not like her tennis clothes, but please don't resort to meaningless insults about her sense of style.

I personally had no opinion when initially reading this thread but became tired of the puerile attempts to compare your sense of aesthetics.

I agree with Mrs Guga's 2nd point, and with irma.

People never understand why I like Anna, so I usually don't even nother to name her when I tell who are my favs. I'm so tired of "defending" myself. And she's such a good doubles player! If only people would recognise that!

Also, yeah Marti is like the girl next door!

Sep 4th, 2002, 06:12 PM
I agree with the 2nd but the first one, I need to think about it again!!

It's always Anna, Anna, Anna....it's not easy to be Anna Kournikova!!

Yeah, I don't know why some people got so offended by what I said! Kimmy is my fave player. If someone said she wasn't glamourous, I would agree with them. If she played doubles with Anna, that doesn't automatically transform her into a glamourous person.

Anyway, Sonic, I realize I must have hurt your feelings our something so you just tried to annoy me by trying to make me feel stupid or something?! I mean, lol, didn't realize I was the WTAworld bully or whatever, lol

I realize you have a crush on Marti, but I never used an adjective to degrade or insult her, so chill, 'k?!

Sep 4th, 2002, 06:42 PM
I'm gay. No crushes on any wta player.

I don't think anyone was offended, they just disagreed and then didn't like your constant contradictions.

A strong reaction to an outfit doesn't mean its glamourous, or not glamourous. Its just a reaction.

I'd never want someone to think they were stupid, even if they were. Self esteem is good.

Please enlighten me, where did I contradict myself?!

And I didn't need to know if you were gay. Don't take what I say so literally, lol

Made my year!:D

Mrs_Guga. YOU think Hingis has no glamour. Nice opinion. However, if Canek thingks she does, so what? It's his opinion, and what makes you right? Kim isn't glamorous, your right. Just because Hingis is my face doesn't make me think she's hot, glamorous, etc. IMO she is, not because of my opinion of her tennis game.
