PDA

View Full Version : Sometime ago I thought "It would be fun to have a goth chick playing in the WTA"

I thought: the WTA could use a goth chick. She would bring a differente sense of style, on and off court. The WTA is all tanned chicks wearing outfits in sunny colours (OK, not all; there's Amy Frazier, and the new all-black Adidas line).

I was thinking along the lines of those goth cheerleaders of the Death Valley team on the Marilyn Manson "Fight Song" video:

(a low res still, but this way at least there's a chance the people who've seen this video will remember what I'm talking about)

You know the type: milky white complexion, jet black hair with the compulsory bangs, black retro outfit with some lace here and there, black eyeliner and so on.

But then I saw this

and began to wonder that maybe it wasn't such a good idea.

Goths dont usually do Sports or any Activities for that matter, so i doubt there would be any Goths ever in Tennis.

Yeah, they're too busy moping about, writing bad poetry on their livejournals and kutting themselves.

I don't know if she was a real Goth, but she really looked the part. Ok- the name was Catalina Cristea, and she's from Romania. People use to joke about her on the CBS sportsline board- being a Gothic chick! :lol:

No, I haven't.

There are several teams who play in all-black gear though, from NZ's rugby national team to AA Coimbra and FC Tirsense (football), so it's not a physical impossibility.

I'm sure we could convince Nastya to be the token WTA Tour Goth chick. I mean, she's already half-way there with her jet black hair and pale skin. Add some blood-red lipstick, face powder, and a black Clima Cool Nike dress and she's as good as set to mope around the tennis court cursing everybody into eternal damnation. ;)

Yes, and Jens could write bad poetry about Nastya and recite it during matches.

Also, if Nastya went Goth (the pink "brunette" shirts would have to go, I'm afraid) I think Jens should change his name to one of the following (mostly copped from pro wrestling, I'm afraid)

Paul Bearer
Sammy Terry
John Doe
M.T. Graves
Warren Lock

You know, the more I think about it, the more I'm kind of liking the idea of Nastya in a long black cape and torn fishnets . . .

If Nastya gets rid of her pink clothes (incl. her pink high-heels!), she would run around naked like 80% of the time...

and I don´t really think that emo is gothic ;)

I think the all black look is ok, although the sparkly headband looks a bit out of place.

I particulalrly like the shoes, I want a pair like that :)

Zvereva was a preppy at heart though, she liked hanging out at the beach with Grateful-Dead type dudes - very un-Goth.

When i saw this thread title, i thought, "But what about Mattek?"

Bethanie looks more like a skateboard park chick than she does a goth. :)

Not in the pictures, but when you see her in real life.

We're talking 1998- 1999. It was about the thick , thick black eye make-up.



She toned down in her later years as a doubles player. Actually, quite pretty. :)
