Yikes what the heck was that? Jen should have smacked Joan for all those stupid questions? "when are you done with tennis?" Geezus she's only been really back since last year! Joan is ready to ship jen out to pasture. Then what was all that about working out? Snooooze! where were the interesting questions?

also jen is a big girl, meaning muscle, she made joan look like jailbait. She should have popped her one.

Ugh. I don't know how the old hag always gets away with it. You're right, Jen should have popped her one.

I don't think Venus will be there. Could be mistaken, but didn't she stay in Europe after Wimby?

Okay in my honest opinion Jen looks good but the dress color, black, does not work. she should have gone for some color, other than that she looks great.

Okay serena just talked with Joan and she looks amazing a light purple flowerly versace number with matching shoes and diamonds. Serena is built like an amazon! I mean i guess when we see her with other tennis players we take it for granted, but the girl is built! MUSCLE! Her biceps were bigger than Joan's head! Does she bodybuild? She has a bodybuilder's physique! She should stay like that and not work out to get any bigger, her physique is perfect right now any more would be too much.

also i want her hair to go back to black or that auburn/burgundy color. The blonde is nice but its time for a change.

I thought Serena looked very nice...but have to agree her muscles and shoulders are like OMG:rolleyes: Jenn looked "frumpy" in her gown..and she did hmm! and haa! her way through the acceptance speech!!:rolleyes: She should treat herself to a "A Dale Carnegie"course!! Serena did quite well although she was just reading the promptor!! ;) Now back to more "jocks"!!

Happy for Venus and Jen winning their awards, but I must be catty for a moment...isn't that what the red carpet is for??

Jennifer's hair....ummm, no sweetie. The wide part, ear tuck thing is not workin for ya. Dunno about the dress yet...gotta see it live on the replay.

Serena looks kinda like Dennis Rodman when he was in drag in that wedding dress. Sorry, but that hair has got to go. She does flash a brilliant smile though, doesn't she? Crest needs to be knocking down her door.

She does not look like Dennis Rodman, that has to be an all time low insult.

She just has that She-Hulk Vibe going on, she better not date any wimpy guys cause she'll just chew them up and spit them out.

She needs to get with Lennox lewis

I think Jenny's looking pretty good. Her hair is nice, and she's got that good tan workin' too. Serena looks good as well, but I agree, time to quit with the blonde and go with the more natural look.

I'm surprised no one talked about Serena messing up just about every word when presenting the best sports film. That was too funny but very embarrassing. And I thought Jen couldn't speak well in public.

R. DIS, that's just your bias on display. Yes, Serena did stumble over a few words, but it wasn't the debacle you're trying to make it out to be. She more than made up for it with her acceptance speeches on behalf of Venus. :)

I think Serena looks FABULOUS, and jen looks good too, not quite as eye-popping as Serena, but I think that is reflective of their personalities.
I agree that I prefer Serena as a non-blonde. I wish she'd go back.
I also agree that those muscles are aMAZING. I wish she would write a book when she retires about her weight lifting routine!!

Jennifer's boyfriend was there too.

I noticed that too! Right after she accepted her award, he presented.

I thought Jennifer looked fabulous! She didn't seem nervous while giving her "thank you's" and did an awesome job.

Serena seemed nervous presenting, but she did better when accepting the award for Venus. I though she looked wonderful!

I have to digress a bit and say that I think Serena is an astonishingly beautiful girl....really stunning, but my first impression last night when I saw that flippy straight blonde hair, the muscles and the dress that my first impression was Rodman. I'm sorry, the hair is just not flattering to her at all, IMO. Doesn't mean I think she's ugly or she actually looks like Rodman, I just think the hair is so fake looking and she could look SOOOO much better. Here are a few photos I have taken of the stunning Serena....no hard feelings, Williams fans...it's just my honest opinion.

I thought Serena's dress was gorgeous, (and her hair doesn't bother me a bit, I rather like it). Looked pretty good, only a slight stumble her and there, and came off "sweet" for the most part.

Jenn, on the other hand, displayed little or no fashion sense. Sorry, but that dress did nothing for her, and why not do something with her hair? Oh well. I will say that once she got past the feeble joke about beating Michael Jordan at something, her speech was pretty well done.

Jul 11th, 2002, 09:59 PM
I agree. I like Serena, not as much as Venus, but she needs to ditch the blonde hair. It's ugly. By the way, I saw a picture of Serena without the braids in her hair and her real hair is actually very long and pretty. I cant understand why she doesnt wear her natural hair. It was very pretty. Well, I can understand why she doesnt wear her natural hair.....probably because after all the sweat from working out. I work out alot too and I wear braids because the hair is ruined by all the sweat. So, I think she will probably keep the braids, but she must change the color. It's really unflattering. But, she is a very beautiful girl. Her muscles are just right.

Hey, btw. On ESPN radio, Dibble said she(Serena) looked like a man. Now, he's always talking about Sue Bird. Sue Bird looked like a man walking in those heels. Poor Girl. She looked horrible. She should have just worn flat shoes. Also, Sue has some muscles on her too.

Oh, and Jennifer looked great. I dont know about everyone else, but I like to see women (Im a woman too) with a little meat on their bones. Jenn has a great womanly figure. I think its nice. Only dogs like bones, men should want a woman with meat. Go Jen, you go girl. She looked nice. I think that she and Serena have the two best smiles in tennis.

selesfan
Jul 11th, 2002, 10:04 PM
I think Serena's hair looked great, I though Jenn's hairstyle made her face look a little puffy, I think her dress looked a little too old for her, didn't flatter her at all. I can see why Serena is on the best-dressed poll. I can't understand why that ugly blonde is leading though.;)

I have to agree that serena outdid jen. Her look was dead on from head to toe, though I still wish she would change her hair. oh well. jen did look good, but she needed to find a dress with some umph to it. that basic black number did nothing special. also she could have done something with her hair. last year she looked fantastic, what happened?

Well she did do a very good job with that. It was hilarious watching her mumble and mess up almost every word. If only she was as good a speaker as Jen.

Well then you obviously didn't watch the show because Jen made a wonderful acceptance speech while Serena stumbled over every word while presenting. I think Serena is the one who should take some speaking lessons, and while she's at it, take some fashion lessons too.

People are a little too hung up on looks. I think Serena and Jennifer both looked great. They wore what they wanted, and that's always beautiful :)

I liked Jennifer's speech it was real and fun. Like when she said 'I beat Michael Jordan in something'.

I did notice Serena make a mistake in her presentation, but only one. The rest of it sounded fine.

As for Venus, I think she stayed in Europe to do some charity work. She isn't with that Italina Guy, Venus is single. Have you ever seen that guy come watch her play anything?

I'm glad she's single by the way.

Congrats Ladies.

JCFan
Jul 14th, 2002, 03:25 AM
Jen was goin' for the low-key, low profile look. I think she had a nice simple outfit, simple hair, and a nice little speech. She was very natural. While I guess Serena was really looking to turn some heads. And she certainly did that.

was that picture distorted. Serena's head and face look ENORMOUS compared to her small frame and trim body? It's weird how big her head looks. She looks great otherwise and I like the blonde hair. She was smart to match it up with a lavender/light purple dress. :D

Bump - Can we talk?!

Yikes what the heck was that? Jen should have smacked Joan for all those stupid questions? "when are you done with tennis?" Geezus she's only been really back since last year! Joan is ready to ship jen out to pasture.

Hey maybe the broad should have taken my advice. The last two years for Jennifer since these awards - I haven't seen anything that barren since Betty White last went to her gynaecologist!

Then what was all that about working out? Snooooze! where were the interesting questions?

You only saw the second take. I asked good questions in the first take. "Are you still smoking weed?" "How awful do you look in the mug shot?" and "When's the baby due?", but her father threatened to pistol whip me. We had to do a re-take.

also jen is a big girl, meaning muscle

You call that muscle? If that's muscle then Liz Taylor's the most muscular senior in the world and should be in boxing rings contending for Championship belts!

she made joan look like jailbait.

Thanks doll. That particular facelift, brow lift and lipo session made me look younger, but I did not realise I looked like a teen! Someone recently said Bette Midler is looking so young these days, she looks like a teen again. Yeah, Teen Wolf.
