I just saw her pictures from World Team Tennis and they got me scared.
She's extremely thin, especially arms and thighs. No muscles at all. Seems like her bones are gonna break one day :(

I see lots of muscles. Take any picture of any player hitting a ball and their arms look weird when they hit.

She's definetely been making an effort to lose weight.
This just looks a little unhealthy from my point of view.

Goldenlox says that Anna is fine. Goldenlox is the unquestionable authority on "all things Anna". Therefore, Anna is obviously fine.

True. ;)
Anna works out with a purpose.
She writes about it in ELLE. It's no secret.
I saw some pics of her taken in 2001. She wasn't much bigger then than she is now esp. her legs. She lost her babyfat in her upper body though but she looks just fine imo.

Yes but Anna looks extremely frail. Compare what she looks like now to how she was when she played on the pro circuit, it's very different

In those pics she was 16, 17 years old. A professional athlete, training 6 hours a day, still growing and babyfat all over, you can't compare that to a 25 year old!

We can discuss this a 100000 times but she will live and she's happy anyway.

She has changed radically. Its sad to see. There is a chance that she naturally was always a low fat frame and that she was predominantly muscle. And when she stopped training she lost the muscles and was left with nothing. Of course the other possiblity is that she is not eating enough. I have no idea which it is, cos I don't know her diet. The above pics make me think of anorexia though cos when I see news reports about anorexic girls they always look like that.

wtf happened to her?....is that photoshopped or is she really starving herself....

Anorexic girls don't have the energy and strength to play tennismatches, even when it's just WTT.

Carling Bassett (who's admitted she was anorexic late in her career) did, though it obviously hurt her game.

I treat the disorder, and "anorectic" is as acceptable as "anorexic." I was taught "anorectic" and still use it.

"anorectic" is ok,comparing to "anorexic" which simply means, "without appetite". That's what I was taught.

And the silly part, of course, is that a word meaning "without appetite" is used to describe a disorder experienced by people who are obsessed with food and eating and who are always hungry. I think it was named before anyone really knew what it was and no one bothered to rename it.

"anorexic" is easier to pronounce, and sounds less pompous.

markhingis
Aug 4th, 2006, 03:25 PM
In Poland we say 'anorektyc-zny' which is similar to 'anorectic' and easier to pronounce.

But the thread is not about proper pronounciation :) but Anna.

Well, I hope that she does come back onto the pro circuit, if only to gain a little weight.

When athletes cease training strenuously their muscles begin to burn fat from their bodies and eventually their muscles lose size from not being worked as they once were. If Anna had continued eating her players diet after she stopped playing, she would no doubt now be drawing attention for gaining a lot of weight.

At the 2003 US Open, Anna did a spot of reporting for a TV network. She said she couldn't keep her hands off the free donuts in the media room and subsequently gained a significant amount of weight that the tabloids kept running photos of her and her protruding belly saying how fat she had gotten since she stopped playing tennis.

When Anna was a junior, she was the skinniest rake you'd ever see. As an adult, her playing weight was reported to be only 50kgs when she was 17, and then later, 54kgs when she was 20. She was always reported as saying that during the off-season, she has to "eat more" as part of her effort to improve her game. She knew that she needed to beef up her body. It seemed that her body cannot hold as many calories as other human beings. She was a skinny child and skinny children tend to go on to be skinny adults.

The best part of Anna was her body/physique... sorry, her face was never incredibly attractive (being blond helped). But now... I don't what to say. Looking that thin is not only unhealthy and unattractive, but she no longer looks like an athlete... Let's hope she's not ill...

Anna's playing weight was around 135 lbs. Not sure what that is exactly in kgs but it is a lot more than the figures you quoted. She wasn't unusually skinny for a 5-foot-8 female tennis player and she had a big, muscular rear end like most of the girls on tour. I'm guessing she weighs 25-30 pounds less today than she did as a player.

Boulimique sounds like the English word bulimia. (I hope she's not binging and purging, which is what bulimics do). :scared:

Oh my.. the arms.. :help:

I know that was my sister's first comment the other day when we were watching some WTT on OLN. "What's happened to her arms she looks sick".

She does look anorexic and has lost quite a bit of bone mass, Hingis too had lost some bone mass after being retired, especially pre jan 2005 and during the tournie she played in Thailand back then.

She's almost as thin looking as when Hantuchova was having weight loss issues.

Is she just trying to be as trendy as the hollywood girls, going on the skinner the better trend a la Olsen gal, Nicole Richie and countless of others?

Not healthy at all. :help:

Actually, no.

Boulimique = Compulsive eater
Anorexique = Anorexic

I was mistaken with all what was being written here :lol: It seems like "anorectic" is a synonym of "anorexic".

its very sad to see she is 100% a walking eating disorder. i
know u can tell naurally skinny girls do not look like that they have bone and muscle mass maintained by nutrients in the diet. Anna dosent shes very malnourished she looks like shes going to break.

ita really scary makes me scared for her, she looks just as bad as Lindsay Lohan use to look, and at the same type of level as Nicole Ritchie, and she wants to play tennis like that, I cant believe her family and friends arent doing something about this.
