LOL at very bored now.. are you saying Anna's a pig? ;)
So these figures incorporate doubles money? They must because I believe Anna is ahead of just about everyone on tour in total money earned ( including endorsements.) :rolleyes:

She deserves the money for all the abuse she gets from the media.
Good for her :).

Abuse from the media?
puh-lease - if it wasn't for the media, Kournikova.inc wouldn't even exist.

Good for Anna.She deserves that.

marshmellow - I wasn't insulting Anna.
I quite respect that she does so well despite the immense pressure on her, and 2343243 camera's clicking everywhere she goes. It can't be easy.
However, if it wasn't for the media she wouldn't be who she was - she'd just be another tennis player. The media builds up her image, and provides her pictures to the masses. So although they are hard on her, I find it hard to put blame on the media for what they do. It goes both ways.

Becca, you said it yourself, the media builds her up and then critcizes her.
She never asked them to do that so does she deserve to have the world constantly critcise her because she's never won a title, just reached the semis of Wimbledon ?
As you can all see I'm not sure how to spell criticise/criticize :confused:

And BTW I don't subscribe to the theory that she courts media attention and therefore deserves to be attacked. I just think she knows how to deal with them better than several others I could mention.

Whether ANNA earned the money playing doubles or singles, the fact still stands that she did earn the money through tournament play. :cool: :rolleyes:

Well Anna appears to be doing something right given that all of this is tennis money (I can't believe I said that).
