Anna K and the Swiss Miss ranked #3 on john aizelwood top 10 sporting catfights

3. Anna Kournikova And Martina Hingis. In 2000, the long suffering folk of Santiago, Chile finally had something to cheer their troubled souls when those tennis ambassadresses, Kournikova and Hingis, agreed to take part in an exhibition match (albeit for the nations's gross domestic product, but that's a side issue). The friendly facade lasted until Hingis disputed a line call and Kournikova refused to yield. As they crossed over, Hingis sneered, "You think you are the tennis queen, but I am!" Kournikova simply reminded her who was the more marketable, and that's where the sporting instinct stopped. Later in the dressing room there is screaming and hair-pulling, which resulted in Kournikova being sacked from their partnership for several years.

:retard:

I find it difficult to believe that anyone could say something so gutwrenchingly cringeworthy, and suggest that this part was dreamt up by some sweaty pot bellied middle aged sports reporter (aren't they all?) as he loosened his pants at the thought of a cat fight between Anna Kournikova and, well, anyone.
