View Full Version : imagine WTA stars playing a sport other than tennis...

this morning I dreamed that I went to a LA Lakers game, and Patty Schnyder was playing point guard, scurrying around the court dribbling the ball between her legs and making behind the back passes like Tony Parker or Steve Nash. So I started to think, if the top WTA players were athletes in another sport, what would they be playing?


Patty Schnyder - basketball (point guard)
Venus Williams - track (high jump, 400 meters)
Justine Henin - football (striker)
Lindsay Davenport - volleyball (middle blocker)
Amelie Mauresmo - track (decathlon)
Serena Williams - boxing (dont tell me you can't see Serena beating the crap out of people)
Maria Sharapova - football (goalkeeper)
Anastasia Myskina - figure skating
Daniela Hantuchova - track (distance running like 5K or 10K)
Elena Dementieva - volleyball (outside hitter) OR track (400m)

any others?

Serena and Venus - 100 meters ;)
:(


neither of them have the right physique for 100m, to be honest I cant think of any tennis players that could make really good 100m sprinter. Venus and Dementieva would be good in 200 and 400.

actually Serena would have a good 100m physique if she trimmed down a bit.

I can imagine Ree playing ice hockey! If I saw her angry face glaring at me behind a helmet as she came speeding my way I would probably just drop and play dead :tape: :lol:

I can only imagine Ana Ivanovic as a swimmer :p would be hot

Pretty good option for those 2. They have a good build and the movement for rugby.

Some good ideas good ideas here. I'm always surprised people don't comment more on Sharapova's enormously wide shoulders. Definitely a swimmer (although she's a bit tall.)
Mauresmo has a swimmers build too.

Venus bounds around like a basketball or volleyball player

Who ever picked fencing for Henin, that's a good pick. She's small a quick, I bet she'd be a great badminton player too (or are we not allowed racquet sports?)

Dementieva is one of the most athletic players - I could definitely see her running track - 400m or 800m maybe.
