this is so crazy - at least IMO

i´m known as a Tennisfan
and on Wednesday a guy at my work came to me and asked me
"do you know a tennis player named Maria.....?"

he didn´t know her surname

and i said "why?"

he said "a guy from the office asked me if i know her, he said she is really hot and has 2 meter long legs"

and i said "yes, it is Maria Sharapova"

he "is she really that hot?"

and i agreed and said she is hot, because i din´t want to start a discussion with him about what is hot.
but i´m sure he will watch the final tomorrow without knowing the tennis rules

and today at our lunch-break another guy asked

"did someone saw the Tennis match yesterday? i think i will watch tennis more often now"

some other guys asked why, and os he said how "Hot" Maria is, and how pretty her legs are, and how short her skirt is and all this stuff.

it is crazy how the interest in Tennis is rising, because this guys usually never watch tennis.

Yep, my friend who never really like tennis said he is gonna watch the final. Something tells me that doesn't matter how one-sided the match will be tomorrow, there will be a lot of people tuning in ;)

Add to the fact that UK tabloids run a big thing on the front page about Maria today, since tabloids are the best selling newspaper in UK, a big publicity for Wimbledon ;)

There's an American Football board that I go to as well, and suddenly there's a thread about Sharapova (on a board where I've never seen a tennis thread before). Of course, it's labelled something like "A Hot Russian Who Can Play" with pics attached. It had more replies than anything else on the board.

And at least 30 people claiming they've never watched tennis before but they'll watch on Saturday.

How you get them in the door doesn't really matter. A certain percentage will actually become tennis fans. If nothing else, players like Sharapova help the sport.

You can't say that it's all about sex-symbols. There was some game Maria brought on the court, I guess.

And the more people watch women's tennis (whatever is their motivation), the better it will be for the tour. One Maria Sharapova is worth 100 "get in touch" campaigns.

The perv daddies like SpikeyAidanm's might become the fathers of future champions if they get captivated by the game.

Very true, if it gets more people to watch the final, then it will be great for women tennis

das ist doch immer so, matthias, daß die meisten nur an der Figur interessiert sind und vom Spielertyp nix wissen wollen. Glaubst Du, das ist bei mir in der Arbeit anders ????

Aber dennoch bewundere ich Maria für ihr Herzblut. Und diese Seite der Maria M. versuche ich meinen Kollega zu vermitteln. Nicht die 2m langen Beine oder das Kournikova-flair ...

I'm at work so I can't get to deep in this conversation, but why do white men find young girls to be their ideal fantasy. I mean it's sick how all of these old white men keep going on about Maria's looks just lusting over her. I guess if she has some early career injuries and have to retire from tennis her dad could use her as a you know what in order to feed the family. I sure there are plenty old white men out there welling to pay top dollar to purchase her. :lol:

you said old white men 3 times.

And don't put smiles celebrating your own jokes because they are not funny, as I said before making funny jokes requires intelligence that you obviously lack of.

and racist pigs like you get in my freaking nerves

sex sells ...

but decency and focus should prevail vs sex in case of Maria S. (hopefully). If people are really interested in tennis they feel that there's something different behind this pretty face and the long legs ...
