My husband was watching the news in Germany and said that they reported that Hingis and Kournikova were opening up a casino in Luzern. He said it looks amazing. Can anyone find more info on this story? Maybe Martina will rack up the bucks and then buy the WTA!!!

He was quite serious. I hope it works out well. I will definitely go. But I am concerned about Anna not focusing on her tennis. Martina has retired and can do great things like this but what Anna's role will be is a mystery for me.

Will this be just a casino or casino and strip club with Anna doing two shows nightly? :D

One would need a whole lot of money to open a Vegas-styled casino. The cheapest costs probably US $1 billion = $1,000,000,000 (Bellagio, for example, cost over $2 billion). I'd be surprised if Hingis and Anna K have $100million between them, and I'd doubt someone would finance the rest given that the two have no casino management experience. Perhaps the article really meant to say that Hingis and Anna are planning an expensive trip to a Vegas casino with a layover in Switzerland.

My guess is that it's probably gonna be something like they did for the opening of the Lugano casino ( in Switzerland too) last november!! They were guests there and they were doing some work for Omega at the same time! I really don't think that they're the ones who are gonna put in the money to open the casino, but instead they're gonna be guests there for the grand opening!!

iluvtennis is correct and "Bright" Red is not too bright....they are I would think "opening" the casino because of their celebrity status and maybe their obligation to their sponsor "Omega"...its for sure they would be an attraction with their beauty and glamour!! :hearts: :kiss:

Well I'm sure playboy would pay Anna quite a bit of money for appearing in one of their articles and she might just be restricted to lap dancing as all the sex over christmas seems to have done her back in!

:confused:

The title of the thread implies (to certain English speakers) that Hingis and Anna K are going in as owners/partners of a casino in Switzerland. "Appearing at a grand opening of a casino" (which they are most likely are doing) and "opening a casino" (which they are not) are two different things.

Then I guess that makes most of the people who responded to this thread not "too bright" as most of their responses were in response to Anna and Martina opening a casino. The original post does say that "Hingis and Kournikova are opening up a casino". :o :rolleyes:
