Now that the retirement of Anna Kournikova is becoming more imminent by the day, one may wonder will her loyal supporters in the international tennis organizations and the media find a way to put one of their biggest money makers of all time in the Tennis Hall of Fame alongside Evert, Navratilova and soon Hingis and later the Willimses?



Under what catagory could the rocket go in under?

Cutest loser.
All time underachiever.
Most over hyped.
Best tan.
Most popular loser.

TR :cool:

Anna Kournikova, most beautiful top 10 player ever.

BTW: She's not going to retire for a couple more years. :)

Most overhyped and best tan ever I guess! Or better yet: THE underachiever!

She's already a 2-time grandslam champion.

She's won less titles than Martina Muller, who has one of the worst records on the tour. Doubt it. Hopefully she will become a doubles specialist or something, maybe get in like hopefully Zvereva or Fernandez will.

Well, it is the Hall of FAME, and she certainly has had more fame than any other player in a while! Interesting this - she was #1 in doubles and a top 10 singles player and was one of the most talked about tennis players for a good few years.

Yea but not always talked about for "good things".

She doesn't have the accomplishments of a Hall of Fame player. Go make music videos/take provocative photos, and be happy w/the oppurtunity tennis provided you.

Her looks aren't a "good thing"?

Thought you were serious for a moment. The hype on Kournikova was pure media. If anyone had ever bothered to take a serious look at her junior record, I don't think they would have pegged for Hall of the Fame material from the get-go. She didn't deserve the hype, but she made for great copy and wound up with a boatload of money in the bargain. Her results have been about what I expected -- No. 8 in the world at one point. Injuries have done a number on her, but I think that was predictable too, as most everything I ever read about her was how much she trained and played as a youngster. If she ever conquers the injuries and her own fragile psyche, I think she should reinvent herself as a serve-and-volleyer -- ala Nataliie Tauziat -- and see what comes of it.
