This is from the Herald Sun's (Victoria, Australia) "The Eye" Section, which is basically there for two so called "journo's" to gossip, bitch, and sometime even compliment the stars.

But look what they said about Mary Pierce!!!

This was the heading: <b><i>MARY'S CROSS COURT SLAM</b></i>

She has been a style innovator on the court, single-handedly re-making the tennis dress a hot sporting item in the mid-90's after it fell from grace in the early 1980s. (go Girl! :) )

But Mary Pierce wasn't in her usual fashionable form in her match against Austrian Barbara Schett at the Hong Kong Ladies Challenge. (:mad: :mad: :mad: ).

The ensemble she donned wasn't on a par with some of her noteworthy sportswear efforts.

All ill-fitting skirt (above right - <i>showing the worst angle of the outfit OBVIOUSLY</i>), - what is it they say about horizontal stripes? - attached to a stretchy bra top with a bizarre cross-over back caught our eyes for all the wrong reasons.

And the outfit seemed to distract the <b>statesque French citizen</b>, <i>(well, they got something right! ;) )</i> but not enough to stop her beating schett 6-4 7-6(3).

The 26 year old Pierce, who was the most talked about blonde glamour girl on the tennis circuit before Anna Kournikova, was awarded a wildcard to the Hong Kong tournament last week.

After reaching a career ranking high of three in 1995 and 2000, Pierce had dropped to 129 following an inflammation of the lumbar region, which had put her out of action since May.

Pierce will be looking to make a big comeback at the Australian Open, which she won in 1995, after also being awarded a wild card last week.

Hopefully, she'll also improve in the glamour stakes and spice things up at the tournament, which starts on January 14. (:mad: :mad: :mad: )!!!.

<b>How dare they!!! - she looked incrediable in that outfit - stupid journo's!!!</b>

What do you guys think???

It's ok to have different opinion and views, I don't even mind some fighting between posters but keep it decent. Some things are just not said so I edited your post and removed your comment GCM.

Oops, the board is new for me too so I also edited the message before. Sorry :o

Thank you

I feel so clueless.

I liked Mary's skirt, didn't really see the top... but it looks ok in that avatar.

Jan 4th, 2002, 07:59 PM
Sorry for all Pierce fans, but I have to agree. Mary has already wore so many beautiful outfits (Roland Garros 2000, Aussie 2000). This new one definitely sucks compared to the others.

It's sooo weird :rolleyes:!

Jan 4th, 2002, 08:13 PM
They know nothing!! Mary looks great in that outfit.

GCM: Edit that mouth! :p Youre assaulting my virgin ears. :p

I dont really see what the big deal is..

Some people think it looks ugly - so what? :confused:

Its just a tennis dress.

Jan 4th, 2002, 10:32 PM
these people obviously have no sense of fashion,i guess she'll have to let her racket do the talking for her!
hope she gets heals fast for the AO!!!

What has this to do with the GAME, for gods sake.It's tennis, not a glamour contest :(

Jan 5th, 2002, 03:08 AM
Be still-the earth has stopped! It must have, because I actually agree with Adrian. Mary IS beautiful, the skirt less so. Go back to the outfit you won the French in Mary, and ditch this monstrosity.
With her figure Mary can almost get away with wearing anything.
ALMOST. Don't guillotine me Mary fans, ok? Just my thoughts :)

BTW, cute Anke pic Caio-and "super Moderator" Josh, yours gave me the best laugh of the day. Too cute.

No offense to Mary fans but I think Mary would look a lot better in something else. The outfit doesn't flatter her.


Jan 5th, 2002, 04:45 AM
ditto Rollo & Sonja.
the outfit does nothing for her.
She can do MUCH better.
