Tatiana just turned 15 a couple of months back. But she has been dressing this way for some time. It seems to be a fad among some of the Junior girls to show as much skin as possible; they seem to have no parental contol.
She looks about 12. All little girls dress like that nowadays from when they're about 6. I think they're been influenced by the likes of Britney Spears and Christina etc. Back in my day, little girls dressed like little girls!
I actually saw her training in Florida where I was and she looked like she had good talent. And i thought she was pretty hot to . Anyway, I really think Tatiana can make it because she is still young, and already has a big game.
BTW, the short, skimpy outfits were worn pre-Britney Spears for younger girls, but it's just becoming a trend. I don't have a prob with it (it just matters that you're comfortable when you're playing.) My mom doesn't have a problem with my fifteen year old sister wearing the Kournikova outfits when she plays matches. My mom's mentality is "It's OK to wear revealing outfits as long as you know what the consequences of wearing them are and the feedback you might get from people." However, just a few months ago my sis wore a CATSUIT (bought the Serena one from puma.com) to a 16-and-under tournament. There was a LONG discussion on the car ride home lol.
All I remember is that she really loves New York
mean I think it is matter of being comfortable for some people but soegirls wear it to distract others and attract attention. Golovin and Sharapova are IMG Girls so this doesn't really surprise me since KOurnikova is no longer with IMG that they try to hint to them to be sexy.
