FROM GRAND SLAM TO.. GRAND SLIM!
Ex-tennis star Anna loses famous curves
By Julie Mccaffrey
FORMER tennis star Anna Kournikova stunned onlookers at a celebrity party with her new super-slender look.

The super-fit athlete who once put the bounce into world tennis with her curves looks to be following Hollywood's "lollipop lady" trend.

The 24-year-old's corset dress couldn't hide the fact that her boobs and bottom are shadows of their former selves.

Moscow-born Anna quit tennis for modelling in 2004.

Her advertising deals had already made her one of the highest earners on the women's tennis circuit, despite her never winning a Grand Slam title.

But now nutritional experts fear that Anna could risk ruining the stunning looks that made her fortune by slimming down too much.

Nutritionist Angela Dowden said: "Anna has lost at least a stone, probably more. She has lost muscle from her limbs, and her face is looking skinny, which is ageing her.

"At 5ft 8in, Anna's former weight of 8st 7lb was on the cusp of being underweight. But at 7st 7lb, her weight has fallen below a critical level which can affect fertility and sex drive."

However, Anna is delighted with her new look. She said: "My shape has transformed and I'm much narrower. My shoulders are smaller, my torso is slimmer and my legs leaner, which I really like."

Anna is due to marry Spanish singer Enrique Iglesias, 30, in June.

There is no way Anna is 5'8. When she was playing they always had her listed at 5'9, and she is no where near that. I think her height is more like 5'6.

Actually, I think we(myself included) are sooooo hypocritical whenever it comes to this subject. When female [athletes] gain weight, the public puts so much pressure on them telling them that they are ugly and unattractive.

Women are driven by these notions and - in turn - often strive for a thinner physique than what health permits.

I will always assert that the talented Miss Kournikova didn't make it further in this game because her handlers discouraging her from developing the muscle tone that could dictate an healthier body but a less-than-frat-boy-hot-babe one. I'm praying that Maria Sharapova doesn't fall prey to this same issue.

Exactly, she looks fine, she never was a big girl. She lost her baby fat and she is not a professional athlete anymore which means loss of muscle tone.


This is all gossip. I know other celeb girls who are underweight and who make Anna look like a fat piggy. How would someone know her exact weight anyway? Anna never talks about private stuf. It seems to me if she would weigh 48 kilo's she would die today. She's 1.74 metres tall by the way.

I think she is 5'7" I'm five seven and when I've been close to her, she seems about the same height as I am.

And I think Anna looks nice. She looked nice before and she looks nice now. I remember several years ago that she said she didn't like her big shoulders and muscled biceps. She's found a way to get a leaner look and she seems happy with it. I like slender people. I think they look nice. I like marathon runner's bodies and I think models look great. I like male tennis players because they are usually long and lean.

It's just a preference. But some people can't stand these differences and have to denigrate simply because she's blond and beautiful. Even before she got this new lean look, there were people saying she was too skinny and had no butt etc. etc.

Believe or not, my mood deteriorated after seeing these pics... :( She probably starves... And she says she enjoys her look... It's obvious to me that she's not gonna come back, because with such physic it's ridiculous to even pick up a racquet. Sad but true.

...Personaly I think that it's a serious problem... Some people critisize Serena for excessive weight but I think it's not a real issue. Maybe she has some unwanted fat, but it's not such a big deal to burn it as to buld all the muscles back, as in Anna's case. And I think Anna is not gonna put it on back. I remember she feared to gain muscles (which is silly) and wanted to look "feminine". But I think that moderate muscles don't make woman look not feminine, it's sexy. At least a lot better than to be as fragile and skinny :(

I've said several times in the past few months that she is looking way way too skinny. She looks unhealthy (the way she talks about loving her body this way, I'd say it's not impossible she's in the early stages of an eating disorder) and like the writer mentioned, she looks to have aged. It's a pity really as she used to have such a gorgeous body. How she thinks what she has now is better is beyond me.

Anna doesn't want to put her muscles back on. I think if she were still a tennis player it would be dumb to have changed her physique, but since she's not planing to play again, I think it's ok to have rescupted her body. Lots of yoga and dance exercises can give one long lean muscles. They might not be good for tennis, but they are perfectly fine otherwise.

Mar 3rd, 2006, 03:06 PM
I am not that sure there is all that much to fret over. It cuts both ways. Society has made a lot over women being too skinny, but a lot of that seems pretty political to me. Unless she is doing some serious damage to her health, her weight seems to be her business and nobody else's.

The issue with Serena is completely different. There, the issue is, is she in condition to play? If she is, then how much junk she has in the trunk is not of concern.

But again, that's if she wants to go on playng tennis. If Serena gives up the sport, then how much weight she puts on is not relevant to tennis fans, just as how much weight Anna loses is not relevant either, unless Anna decides to return to tennis.

I think this is BS. I understand your intention, but give smart women credit. And any woman who lets herself be programmed to order her life around other peoples' expectations desreves to take the blame for it.

No!! That's my point.

What you are saying is empathetic, well-intentioned, but at root it is actually condescending and demeaning to women. The implication is that women cannot make healthy and smart choices.

We do not need to do what anyone else tells us, and for the women that choose to live by others' expectations then they live with the consequences.

Women make choices to either accept or reject these things. We are not forced to accept or follow ANYTHING.

The solution is for women to get smart, not for society to change. And women getting smart will actually change society's expectations in the long run. We can only control ourselves, not others. There is nobody making decisions about what is right for me unless I allow it.

It goes much deeper than this, and women are not the only ones who are "victims" of the "beauty machine." African Americans do it with "straight hair". Asians do it with "round eye surgery," and I even have a Jewish female best friend who couldn't wait to go get her "Jewish nose" fixed.

Women of all races, though, are up under a machine that seems (to me) impossilbe to rage against. All clothes, standards of beauty, and levels of strength are determined by men.

You say you're a woman? I guarantee you your beauty regimine has been planned for you in order to satisfy a man with products that have probably been made for by men. Your clothes are probably considered cute because a male-dominated society has said they are. I wonder if we realize that.

I finally got to see what the fuss was about her. I wish I could have saw her in her prime but from the looks of it I'll never even get to see her play again. I'd say if she stays at her current wieght I'll be content enough with her choice but any lower and I'll I have some definite worries about her. The only thing I can't get over is how different her face looks:eek: , maybe its just because she's matured since the last time I've seen her but wow.

Frail frame
By CLARE MASTERS Health Reporter

March 03, 2006

THE incredibly shrinking Anna Kournikova is shedding so much weight she is looking as stick-like as the tennis racquet she sometimes wields.



Former world tennis star Kournikova is worrying experts with her dramatic weight loss which has left the once voluptuous star looking thin and frail.

The 23-year-old has the "lolly-pop look" common to people with eating disorders where their arms are twig-thin and their head appears too big for their body.

The Children's Hospital at Westmead's eating disorder expert Dr Sloane Madden said Kournikova was particularly vulnerable to the condition as both a model and an athlete.

"She is at significant increased risk because she is part of a group where there is a focus on body image," he said.

"There are groups such as athletes, models, dancers, gymnasts and they have much higher rates (of eating disorders)."

Director of Eating Disorder Program Prince Alfred Hospital Professor Janice Russell said celebrity dramatic weight loss can have a negative effect on young, vulnerable girls. "We live in the cult of the icon and when celebrities are shown losing all this weight it is a very bad role model," she said.

I dont' really care, fat, thin or medium sized, I never understood what all the fuss was about anyway, in my opinion she's not all that good looking. She has definately lost weight though.

I dont think she looks unhealthy. A lot of people are that skinny naturally. If she loses any more weight then we should start to worry.
It shouldnt be about looks either, if she is happy with the way she looks it is all right, as long as it is not unhealthy.

Anna looks like she can't pick the racket up anymore. Her good body is definitely "gone with the wind".

Those arms could hardly pick up a glass vase to throw at Martina Hingis anymore, let alone swing a mean forehand on the tennis court.

Hahaha,
btw, is she really marrying Enrique?

Anna's new journal entry -

Hi Everybody!

I just returned from a quick trip to Los Angeles where I participated in an event for General Motors called GM-ten. It was so much fun. I got to walk the runway with other celebrities while GM cars followed us down the runway. The theme of the show was Hollywood Glamour and I wore a gown by J. Mendel. For participating in the event GM will be making a donation to my favorite charity, The Boys and Girls Club.

While in LA I also shot 5 more fitness segments for Channel One and was a guest anchor for their news program. Look out for everything to air soon!

Next week it is off to Berlin for an appearance and then to Reading, PA for the 12th Annual American Red Cross Legends of Tennis.

That's because she's not an athlete anymore: you lose muscle tone. Anna looks fine, she never was a big girl. After she lost the baby fat, she has a normal body now. This is what every woman would look like if they'd stop eating chips, crisps, cookies and fried food. I would be more worried about Anastasia Myskina, she IS an athlete and thinner than Anna (as is Hantuchova).

I agree, apparently if you lose some weight also around the face it ages your looks??

I guess now she's not training as a pro athlete she has lost nearly all that muscle. She is looking very thin, but then she was always looking quite thin anyway :shrug:

I wanna see u playing again, anna, please, open ur eyes, the tennis community needs you!

There is no way she is pretending to make a comeback with that body, she'd get torn apart by the likes of Henin-hardenne, Mauresmo, and clijsters.....sorry, she'd probably get torn apart by all of the top 20.

Oh anna, what 2 years can do....

I think it is going to be harder and harder for her to keep telling her fans and the media that she hasn't ruled out a comeback.

Yeah Anna just needs to do us all a favor and say "I have no plans of comming back" followed by "my hearts just not in it". (Which I beleive is the truth) Instead of al this, "I'm just not ready now, but who knows" kinda stuff- But w/e, she probably duzn't even need to say anythiing. Her body speaks for herself. I just hope this "new Anna faze", is really.........just a faze. I mean if she doesn;t wanna play tennis fine, but she could at least look like she did before all of this. It's just a shame to see her so frail looking.

We miss you AnnaK :sad:

I've never been one to care much for the skinny model look and I have no good feelings towards anna's new model look. While it's certainly not unhealthy, persay, it's just not as appealing as the classic anna look, imo. Celebrities, especially female celebrities, love to change themselves to be something they'd like people to want all the time, though, so this doesn't really come as a big surprise. Obviously, the whole runway anna is probably the reason behind the shrinkage. I think the more interesting part is the marriage reference, tho.

I'm most shocked by the recent photo of her playing tennis (posted by goldenlox). To me she looks thin in her evening dress, but if she likes that, well... but that photo in the tennis dress :eek::eek::eek: I guess she wouldn't sell so many tennis outfits these days because she doesn't fill them anymore... sorry that's not the sexy Anna we all knew
About her face: Not sure if all the difference comes from losing weight. At least I haven't seen her for more than 2 years, and young women develop in her age, so that she does look a bit older could be quite natural.

i don't see any need to worry. anna is a health buff and a hard worker. certainly, she worked so hard to sculpt her body that way and won't go beyond what she knows would be debilitating to her health. no freaking big deal. she's not an athlete anymore, and will never be again so she doesn't have to worry about getting herself in tennis physical fitness.
