Anna Kournikova = Tennis

I spoked with my friends and we talked about tennis. 99% of my friends dont even look at tennis and when eurosport are showing tennis they will avoid it.
Anyway I mention a few names like Henin, Hingis, Capriati Williams a.s.o... and they dident know who they were, but when I mention Sharapovas name they finally understood I was talking about tennis.
So Henins retirement only affect peoples who enjoy great tennis cause they like just tennis.
But for the future, I would say that Anna Kournikovas retirement did cost much more than Henins, cause what WTA need is tennisplayers who can draw people to the tour, and probably its players like Sharapova and Kournikova.

What I wanna say is that I dont think Henins retirement will affect the sport that much.
I liked Henins game but honesty I rather like watching Sharapova, Hantuchova, Ivanovic...

Re: Anna Kournikova = Tennis

So you like watching tennis to see cute girls then? It really doesn't matter to me or most tennis fans who people that aren't actually interested in the sport of tennis prefer to see. To say that the WTA needs more Kournikovas than Henins in the future is absolutely ludicrous.

Yeah, personally, I do. Tennis is for sport, not a beauty contest. I'd rather not have a bunch of tennis fans who only care to watch the pretty babes bounce their stuff on court than a small number who actually consider it a sport.

Kournikova inspired a lot of Russian girls because she was actually a very good, quickly successful player when she started out, from a country with little tennis history on the women's side. It didn't hurt that she was overexposed by the media, but she never would have been as such if not at least initially for her tennis. I believe in a few decades, after Anna K's mystique has faded into the woodwork, Henin will be the more remembered tennis player.

Fair enough, but it's a minute distinction over time. The WTA may benefit form hotsie-totsie type players now, but if they don't deliver the goods at slams, it makes little to no difference in the long run. That's why Sharapova is great for the WTA, but Kournikova ultimately failed to fulfill her cash-cow potential.

Of course there is nothing wrong with that, but I would think fashion shows are much better for that.

Re: Anna Kournikova = Tennis

You're right. Casual fans and new fans will be attracted to tennis by players like Sharapova, Ivanovic, and other pretty girls. It's only natural.

Re: Anna Kournikova = Tennis

Sharapova dont deserve to be compared with Kournikova. She is 21 right now and her achivment so far is even better than Hennins at 21 (and comparing her with Anna K. is nonsense). It's not Maria "fault" because she is pretty girl! So according her looks, hard-works and talent, Maria more deserve to be compared with Chris Evert than with Anna Kournikova!

I agree with that... so even with her weak results (in terms of "greatness") she is probably one of 10 players with biggest "influence" on womans tennis history - especialy on "Russian revolution" phenom. Not because many girls start dreaming to be tennis players - it's more because many parents start to dream about their dauthers like tennis star (which is actualy more important, especialy in eastern Europe where parents still must to sacrifice many things for eventual dauthers tennis career).

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)
