I was looking at the internet movie database <br /><a href="http://www.imdb.com" target="_blank">www.imdb.com</a> and had the idea of searching for the name of some tennis players.

I found out that some players have been in movies:

Anna Kournikova: Me, myself and Irene

Steffi Graf: Otto - Der Außerfriesische (1989)

There is a movie named "players" which features several players playing themselves:

John Alexander (VI) <br />Vijay Amritraj<br />Tom Gullikson <br />John Lloyd (VI)<br />Dan Maskell <br />John McEnroe <br />Jim McManus <br />Jorge Mendoza<br />Ilie Nastase <br />David Pate <br />Dennis Ralston<br />Ion Tiriac<br />Guillermo Vilas

Anna seriously sucked in Me, Myself and Irene..... that's why probably she stopped talking about Hollywood career.......

She said she did that for fun...

About this so called hollywood career, she never said she wanted to be an actress..

The Question was, if she was NOT a tennis player what would she like to do, or see herself doing, and that was her answer.. So since she is actually a tennis player, I don't see herself, becoming an actress in the near future, but when her career is finished , who knows..

ajayares, no need to go on defensive when you talk about Anna with me <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0"> .... I'm in no way bashing her, just saying the truth. <img src="graemlins/wavey.gif" border="0" alt="[Wavey]" />

Hey, I am not on the defensive at all..

I have not even seen the movie, so if you say she sucked, well I take your word for it <img src="wink.gif" border="0">

I was just saying that she was not talking up a hollywood career, the media may have, but Anna wasn't..

I think most of the top 50 women would make great actresses. They practice by emoting on court every day. But you can't tell them that the camera is on or they'll start "acting." <img src="wink.gif" border="0">

I heard that Dosedel wanted to become an actor, TheBoiledEgg. Is he still playing on the ATP?

Has anyone heard the rumours about Pat Cash being offered a part in a movie? He was reportedly offered a part as a soldier in a war epic.

"Black Knight" will be released in the US/Canada on November 21st.

Vijay Amritraj was dope in Octopussy. It's one of my fave James Bond films. From the moment he first appeared playing the 007 theme on a flute to the golf chart chase where he hits an attacker w/a tennis racket. Classic.
