Well she flamed out again. This is pathetic. What is the big deal about her? I dont get it.


I dont think shes all that fine. I understand that a chick being famous raises her hotness quotient above what it normally would be (Britney Spears comes to mind) but shes nothiong special to me. Another cute blonde off the fembot machine. Maybe her charisma would shine through more if she actually started WINNING.

Im sorry if I seem like a hater, but I think I could take the media obsession withy her if it was justified. Im sure the other women hate the fact that she sucks so much. A Anna- Serena final would probably get ratings to rival the damn Superbowl if they can just get Miss K to play halfway decent.

She's one of the most overrated personalties today.

She's not sexy, and she sucks at tennis.

In a sport with women like Martina Navratilova (sp?) Anna is damn fine. Hell, she's fine anyway, but from what everyone writes about she's a major b1t@#

This kind of goes with the topic, so I'll throw it in.

Anways, I was watching Crossfire today (premis: two guys bitch at eachother.) And on the show they invited two women to debate the whole Anna topic. And while I think most feminists are a little crackers form time to time, this one hit the nail on the head about Anna being nothing but a poster girl. Is that a bad thing? I'm not here to debate that.

The thing that annoyed the hell out of me is that the women defending Anna seemed to have no clue about women athletics. Her main defense was pretty much summarized in her statement that "Any bunch of boys in Highschool could beat a WNBA/professional women's team." Now while I agree that the top of the line male athlete has advantages over the top of the line women athlete...that statement is total and complete crap!

While the WNBA is boring and what not, it's a definate that most high school kids out there couldn't hang with a Lisa Leslie. And in Tennis it's even more ludacris an argument. We've had guys at my college who have played with the likes of Martina Navatilova (I'll take sp? for 100 Bob!) and when someone tried to pull this statement out he laughed his ass off.

I don't mind people defending the overuse of Anna by saying "She sells tickets." It worked for Hogan! But don't come out and talk about things you have no clue about! Geeze!!

Ok done venting.

PTI called Anna's "accomplishment" this past Monday the "Anna Slam", being knocked out in the first round of each of the four majors. And she went out in style, only taking 44 minutes! Way to go Anna!

What's amazing is that she is still ranked 38th in the world. There is something truly wrong with the way the women's rankings work. (There have been women who have won tournaments drop in the rankings, with players they've beat jumping ahead of them!)

As far as her looks go, she definately fine enough to be a poster girl in my book. As far as the media obsession, it's not just the media. From what I understand, her match was the only one playing in front of a full house (with people turned away) at the U.S. Open Monday. There is a demand.

Remember that Enrique Inglesias video she was in? People say she is sexy, but she's built like a goddamn rugby player with implants! Look at the shoulders. I understand why she is that shape, but it ain't pretty. Plus, she looks like the 'butch' one in that video.

What is the point of woman tournaments anyway? I thought it all came down to which one Daddy says is going to win.

She's young, blonde, athletic and a shameless brat. Thus, I can understand why she's popular.

What I can't understand is the MAGNITUDE of her popularity and the obsession of many of her fans, as there are countless other girls who are young, blonde, athletic and shameless brats to choose from and ogle. I could throw a bread roll in any local high-school-or-college cafeteria and hit six or seven of them.

So she has breasts. Woohoo, they're two of many. What else does she bring to the table?

Thats exactly why I plan to never buy a FHM magazine again. SHE'S the sexiest woman on the PLANET? They must mean Mars. Shes not even the sexiest woman in Tennis. Ill take Serena Williams and all that booty any day of the week.

I disagree, the girls looks good. I don't know her personality, but I know enough to know that if she game me any lip I'd still pork her. Period.

As for her ranking, in her defense she DID work hard to qualify for those tournaments, and yes she does suck, but if you look at the finals of all the tourney's it's the same four people anyways, so of course she's 38th. It's not like every tourney she's been in Macenroe doesn't go on his tirade's hating on her anyways.

The girl sucks, but does that stop any of these "girls that can sing" from being on mtv every single minute of every single show. Does that stop any of those soap actor's from taking a job that pays way too much for way too little work? In summation, our society's fucked and we're going to hell in a handbag. All we care about are looks, money and various other things that in the scheme of things don't really matter (even if you become a billionaire you're still going to die, unless you have the money to make robots!). Rant OVER.

Anna has won a couple of Grand Slam doubles titles, so she's not ENTIRELY untalented. She just works best in a team....oh my God, she's the Billy Gunn of tennis.

And did anyone else see Natalie Gulbis and her reaction to being called the "Anna Kournikova of the LPGA"? She HATED it, because she (allegedly) has game.

Her talent is being smart enough to pick Martina Hingis as a partner, Hingis who before her injury could pretty much carry anyone to a doubles championship. Does that make Anna Stevie Ray to Martina's Booker T?

Well, Stevie Ray was usually calling others Fruit Booty, rather than being ref--ah, it's not that funny anyway. I think the Billy Gunn analogy (Mrs. Ass) works a little better. And when could BT carry anyone in a tag match? He was never Jesus H. Kawada...

Hey Yo...

I don't care what anyone says, Fruit Booty was funny as hell. Seeing it in print is even funnier, but DAMN, did I ever enjoy Stevie Ray's announcing, not because he was really good, but because you could tell he loved wrestling and was somewhat of a fan (that and he tried to eliminate "yak's" from wrestling, and I agree, yak's got no place!).

Best Anna K. story I've ever read.

A few years ago she was at Wimbleton, training for the tourney. A few British yobs start catcalling her and acting generally like louts. How does she respond? (Keep in mind she's 17 at the time, and dating Sergei Federov).

"You can't afford me boys."

Best ... hottie ... comeback ... ever.

Gundamn Wing could work. They'd probably fuck it up, but an original story with the characters from Gundam Wing would be pretty fucking cool. -Jag Endless Waltz doesn't really stand on it's own though, without the series.
