I had the TV on in the background listening to daytime's number one soap when the long-time character Paul Williams (the investigator) was asked by his fiancee if she could bring him anything from his old apartment and he said
"What? Like my life-sized poster of Anna Kournikova"?" Also saw a Saturday Night Live skit the other night with pictures of Pete Sampras and a part about Kournikova. With all this and her video with Enrique she is really getting into the American consciousness deeply especially when you get mentioned on a fictional daytime series.:D

Martina has been mentioned one time on Friends too! (Don't know if they meant Hingis or Navratilova), but is was when Chandler and Monica were playing against Chandler's boss and his wife. Of course Monica wanted to win, and after a good ball from Monica, Chandler says: "Easy, Martina!"

I thought it was SO FUNNY!:D :D :D

Venus was mentioned on Will and Grace. Will was pretending to be a professional tennis player at a party (instead of a lawyer, which is what he is), so Grace teased him and called him Venus.:cool:

Martina Navratilova appeared on an episode of Will and Grace and Martina Hingis was on Politically Incorrect (I love Martina's non-pc attitude so she is perfect for that show) and she was on charlie Rose. The Willies, Andre and Pete were on the Simpsons.

Yep Venus and Serena were both mentioned on "Passions" about a year ago. There is a leading character on the show.. "whitney" who is a pro tennis player. Her dad, one episode said something like.. "How did your practice go with Venus and Serena Williams", or I think it was something like.. if you want to be as good as Venus and Serena u need to practise. Anyhow I was shocked and quite pleased when I saw the episode..:)

Monica and Ross' Dad on Friends has a thing for Steffi Graf.

I think the writers must like Steffi - she gets a mention on a few occasions. Also Chandler calls Monica "Martina" when she gets to competitive whilst they are playing his boss in one episode!

She is now part of the american culture. At my job she is the only tennis player my co-workers can name. They refer to venus and serena as those sisters and Andre as that guy who was married to Brooke Shields....
