Isn't Myskina the one who did that nude pose for a certain men's magazine last year, astride a horse I believe? Hmm... the Russian women may not have chosen to emulate Kournikova's career path, but they certainly know how to follow in her footsteps as far as off-court self-promotion is concerned.

Hendouble - The thing that seems to seperate Myskina is that she played BETTER after the photo shoot. Most women who get caught up inthe sex symbol stuff seem to see their games fall off. Notable exceptions would be Amanda and Serena I guess. But most of Serena's stuff really is't sex-driven, and Amanda really only started up with that late in her career. I was thinking more of Barbara Schett, and Anna K of course, and (I really hope not but I'm beginning to wonder) Dani.

Anastasia was asked about that pose by other players. She said she wasn't nude, but "with underwear". I'm assuming she meant "in" underwear. ("With" could mean she's holding it in her hand. :o) It's an interesting defense. "Were you on a horse naked?" "No, I was on a horse in my underwear." "Oh, that's much better. :rolleyes:"
Will the other Russian players now rush out to have their pictures taken on horseback? Is there a different standard for the level of tournament you want to win? Myskina has won a 2 and a 3 since the pose. Are there different pseudo nude (psnude?) poses to win a Tier I, or a slam?
