I would like to know if anyone knows of any player/s who smoke? I don't think Venus or Serena do? Not sure about Jen, cause when you go out and party, that doesn't mean you're an avid smoker. Unless some of her fans know that she does smoke. I don't seem to recall hearing about any WTA gals smoking.

Martina Hingis, Jennifer Capriati, I'm sure there are others.

I'd like to know the course of information for that.

Sep 13th, 2002, 05:09 AM
how do you know this sam? i too am suprised that martina smokes....

Sep 13th, 2002, 05:16 AM
Mauresmo has admitted that she has a cigarette every now and then, but that was years ago when she said it...

Sep 13th, 2002, 05:33 AM
Well Serena was smoking in that cat suit! ;) :p

Sep 13th, 2002, 05:38 AM
I find it hard to believe that any of the active players are regular smokers. Perhaps a casual sig after dinner once in a while, but to be fit and on-top of your game, I think it'd be such a roadblock to have less than healthy lungs. I could be wrong!

Anyone else known to light up? Or does anyone know if they're favorites smoked when they went to any of the tourneys? When I went to the US Open I really didn't recall spotting any of the players smoking??

LOL@Tesquoia good one.:)

Sep 13th, 2002, 06:09 AM
What about hitting the chronic, does that count as smoking as well? :)

Sep 13th, 2002, 08:32 AM
I saw Conchita Martinez smoking on a pic of the Filderstadt players´ party years ago

Sep 13th, 2002, 09:28 AM
There was some rumours about Hingis a year ago or so, and it's all based on a celebrity smokers site, where all sources were "A local newpaper", "A local witness" or such, ie totally unreliable. I'm not saying it's not true, but I haven't seen any trustworthly sources.

It was the same story with Kournikova.

A couple of fans have acknowledged that Martinez smokes a LOT.

Sep 13th, 2002, 09:33 AM
steffi was on that site too and I am sure she doesn't smoke and detests it!
Martina also said that she doesn't smoke but sigares sometimes. I think I read that somewhere in the marty party zone!

Sep 13th, 2002, 10:04 AM
Marti ONLY smokes cigars? LOL

Sep 13th, 2002, 10:26 AM
There are alot of players who smoke and drink, but then again this was at a players party that I saw them all, so I'm not sure if they are regulars or not.

em.. Martina doesn't smoke but she does cigars!! :o

Sep 13th, 2002, 11:10 AM
Celine Beigdeber smokes cigarettes,i saw it with my eyes during Palermo's tourney :p

Sep 13th, 2002, 11:14 AM
lol @ m!ssundaztooD

Sep 13th, 2002, 12:35 PM
Martina DOESN'T smoke cigarettes OR cigars...she said she liked the SMELL of cigars!

Glad we cleared that up;)

According to Jon Wertheim in his book, several players told him they had seen Anna Kournikova smoking. However, as witht he others mentioned, that doesn't show if it was a regular habit. Even if it was, I would assume she has quit now, as I can't imagine Harold Solomon tolerating it, as it impacts fitness so much.

Sep 13th, 2002, 04:14 PM
I once had a dream about amelie mauresmo (my only tennis-related dream ever) where she was smoking during changeovers! image if somebody did that for real! :)

Sep 13th, 2002, 04:19 PM
Men's player Karsten Braasch used to smoke during changeovers, until the ATP banned it. He retired soon after... :)

Sep 13th, 2002, 04:19 PM
Smoking makes people lose their breath easily and slows down a person's oxygen consumption. Hence I don't think many good sports people smoke!

Sep 13th, 2002, 04:22 PM
soccerplayers do!

Sep 13th, 2002, 04:55 PM
LOL@Aaron ;) :)
LOL@EZ ....

Well, cigars aren't like she was smoking anyway .... ;)

BK4ever, what players did you see smoke cigarettes at that party? I am curious. Drinking a bit of alochol won't hurt one's tennis game. Unless you come out on the court intoxicated. LOL

I mean you wouldn't need a Zyban patch or anything to kick a drinking habit. But one would if they wanted to kick a smoking habit. I think it would seem a bit weird to actually see a player smoke. Maybe at first, then after time I would be used to it. I really can't see Venus or Serena smoking at all. Especially Vee.

There is no evidence to prove that any of the WTA players smoke. Some of them probably smoke occasionally or recreationally. And it's all a part of their youth.

Dawn Marie
Sep 13th, 2002, 07:22 PM
cat, I agree about their is no evidence, but alot of times what starts in youth can carry over in their adult life. Alot of players on the WTA tour could be in their early 20's and still puff occasionally, some could be avid smokers.

Sep 13th, 2002, 07:31 PM
I saw Iva, Jennifer and lots of euro players, but like i said, it was probably a social thing...plus some player who I saw arancha Parra hanging out with, cant remember name.

This was at a players party and there was alot of smoke and lets say they were alot more players than employees at the party.

Are you refering to those Jen and Iva party pics? or another time?

i think with cigars - Marti means those women cigars! cigarillos! why not.. they are tasty.... :drool:

Marti doens't like cigaretts. :angel:

Sep 13th, 2002, 10:37 PM
What are the Jen and Iva party pics??

Sep 13th, 2002, 11:04 PM
I know Anna smokes i've heard that plenty of times unless she was doing it for money...That girl will do anything for a bit of bling bling

btw.. does it matter whether they smoke or not? it's not like smoking is a bad thing.... lol... there are worse things going on in the world.

Dawn Marie
Sep 13th, 2002, 11:18 PM
Marri it doesn't matter if they smoke or not. I was curious and wanted to know if any tennis fans knew if any players smoked. Marri smoking is a bad thing. Alot of people die from lung cancer.

Big Fat Pink Elephant
Sep 13th, 2002, 11:24 PM
but ppl can still die from lung cancer without smoking.. :sad: and ppl who smoke can live without getting it....

And so that theory you stated means that Cigs are not bad for your health? LOL

look go read up on the dangers of cigarette smoking because apparently you don't know what they can do to your health.

Big Fat Pink Elephant
Sep 13th, 2002, 11:36 PM
lmao - what's up with you? i never said that cigarett wasn't bad for the health. it's not that bad COMPARED to other shit tha's going on in the world. Hello - your President Bush?!

and i'm perfectly aware of all the things on the pavkages, thank you.

That's her bra -- she took off her shirt -- so did Iva, eventually

Big Fat Pink Elephant
Sep 13th, 2002, 11:49 PM
lol.. i was thinking bra, but thought that she might have been more "sofisticated" and didn't strip...

Dawn Marie
Sep 14th, 2002, 12:17 AM
Marri what's up with you? You stated that "It's not like smoking is a bad thing?" When you say that in a "WTA Players smoke cig thread," then I am inclined to think that you think smoking it is no big deal. As for Bush, he is a moron, and this is not a Bush is a Moron thread.

Sep 14th, 2002, 02:35 AM
Thanks janie :)

Looks like Jen Jen has a little trouble controlling that wild side ;)

Sep 14th, 2002, 01:33 PM
Bush used to smoke.

Big Fat Pink Elephant
Sep 14th, 2002, 04:06 PM
smoking really is no big deal. it's a personal choice - and ppl that are stupid enough to smoke and higher the risk of getting lung cancer, then too bad.

and you mean since this is a "WTA Players smoke cig thread," i can't talk about other ppl? :confused:

Sep 14th, 2002, 06:13 PM
i know that sebastien grosjean is a regular smoker

Dawn Marie
Sep 14th, 2002, 06:20 PM
Ok Marri, Lmao@weevee.:)

Iva's got serious sweat patches, and Jen just looks like a rock chick!
