Steffi is one of them. She looked fabulous in this interview http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KKthgogpjr4 and in USO semi 1991 against Navratilova.

She wasn't flattering at all during her teenager years. She looked better as a woman.

2002 and 2010 are my favorites! Both times the pic showed the winners with the most genuine happiest of smiles. Knowing what we know now, of course, 1992 is very sweet too. Agassi looks like a kid in the candy store and Steffi looks unreadable.

Althea's picture is great. Here is one of her being kissed by her defeated competitor and with the Dish. (http://www.sparta.k12.il.us/lincoln/curric/blackam/p2blam_files/image013.jpg)

My other favorite of the photos (excepting Venus'/Serena's many pics) is Amelie's. I was so happy she won after the debacle in AO against Justine. Two slams. When she first started, I thought she would win more than that. Not V/S numbers, but more than two. You never know what is going to happen.

Sampras and Hingis is the cutest! Like an uncle and a niece. A rare sight in Wimbledon Ball. :D

Steffi.... :help: :eek: She dressed up like an evil witch without a hood. I know it's just a Championship Ball, but please... she could look better than that even with similar kind of dress.

Navratilova, BJK and Steffi are soooo dorky. Justine won't do better than them I guess :lol: :lol:

I think the mens' final finished up really late in 2000 so Pete was late to arrive at the ball but when he finally did turn up he was wearing sweat pants:o I think that is why we see no pics of Vee/Pete together from the ball that year.

Love Serena and Rafa; they look great together. It would be fun to see them play a mixed doubles tournament together; maybe Serena can complete her box set with him. I feel bad for Andy; had he won last year the '09 picture would have been the best by far. :awww:

There is a wonderful pic of Venus when she won - I think it was 2007 0r 2005 - when she is standing in front of a full length mirror in a beautiful chocolate coloured long dress just before the 'ball'. She looks fantastic but I can't find it anywhere - so if anyone can post it that would be great! I think she never looked better and she was so happy.

That year she's just 25 years old and looking fresh during Wimbledon, love her hairdo. She would have looked gorgeous had she cared to dress up and threw that old robe. She even didn't need a make up.

In terms of the Wimbledon ball one, I love that Lindsay wore her customary flats, she probably would have worn flip flops otherwise. :angel:

Petra looks fantastic in the shade of blue. Arguably one of the prettiest ball dresses in recent history.
My favorite is Serena and Rafa from last year, they were so cute. And Momo's gown in 2006 was gorgeous.

I love this one...they booth look great....I like how Wimbledon is the only slam where the women's trophy looks better then the men's..LOL....but it dose look a little odd seeing a man hold it.

On another note...the Australian Open is the only slam the trophies are equally impressive.

Petra does look amazing. I thought 2011 would be awkward, with Novak probably not knowing who the hell she was and Petra hair being all over the place, but petra looks stunning and they look cute together. :worship:

Petra is pretty when she wants to be. Those dresses are also a great way to hide the midsection, as I know. :)
Eh, her stomach isn't even particularly big. Her tennis clothes (well, rather the outfit she has worn this year) are unflattering on her. Put her in a normal T-shirt or a dress, like this one, that is fitted to her shape, and there's not really much there.

Maybe this was the reason:Serena played mixed doubles with Hewitt in 1998 in AO. :eek:
They lost in the first round to Florent (AUS) / Zvereva (BLR) 6-7(3) 2-6

The woman singing was 1957 Wimbledon winner Althea Gibson, a true pioneer and legend of the game. You have no idea what she went through as a woman of color.

Jimmy Connors wasn't creeping on some girl. That is tennis legend Chris Evert, who was his fiancée at the time. (They later mutually agreed to call off the wedding.)

The woman you call "ugly" is tennis legend Billy Jean King, who is responsible for the birth of the WTA tour and helping women's tennis to become what it is today.

Not a totally accurate statement IMHO. Serena indeed has gotten better and better because she hangs out with more celebrity type peeps, which has helped heaps. Venus on the other hand don't, and have had some horrible misses, but she has also had some hits. I think for the most part she's done better but don't really care as much as Serena in that regard. Still...

THERE IS NO WAY IN HELL I CAN JUSTIFY THAT HOT MESS FROM 2008. It was bad all around.

I guess I'm in the minority because I liked Venus' 2008 jacket. It was Ralph Lauren and very sophisticated. Most of the pics shown don't show the full effect of that long purple gown and the white jacket with the purple trim. I think what would have pulled it off better for her was if she wore her hair up, but the look itself is fabulous. Purple is a color synonymous with royalty and the look was very sophisticated and regal, just like Venus.

Fabulous photo ! Somehow Serena and Federer go well together. Love the stare of both, very "We're both stars but you can't reach us". The King and the Queen of tennis. Could as well be the promo for the next James Bond. lol

For the people who don't know Althea Gibson, she was the first black winner of a slam and of Wimbledon. When she won Wimbledon she got a parade through New York.

This came from a blog thing which had a lot of great old pictures on it.

Was Serena also racist towards Hewitt when she dropped him from the partnering her in Mixed Doubles earlier that year? :awww:

Is that why Serena was so ruthless returning his serve esp 2nd serves at the Hopman Cup in 03 (was it?)

Amazing how much better Serena looks when she's winning. She turned up in London a couple of weeks ago looking like a Goddamn mess, but night-and-day difference now - her look is surprisingly sophisticated in the Ball pic. I guess she must have run over to Harrods as soon as she picked up her winner's cheque on Saturday.

This was the year Hewitt refused to dance with Serena cuz he's a racist twat :o
I will forever judge Kim for dating and almost marrying this douche.

:facepalm: Can you blame me for hating humanity?

Yes, Hewitt is racist, because he accused the black linesman of supporting another black guy because he's black, i.e. he accused another person of racism. Accusing other people of racism. Is racist.

I wonder what that makes you then. :confused:
