    Welcome to the Wam's TennisThread!!!

    another quality bLog brought to you by SSolid

    Feel free to yak on the latest happenings in the tennis world.






    [line]
    WTA Championships 2006

    Justine Henin-Hardenne beat Amelie Mauresmo 6-4 6-3 A good end to a good year (of making all four Grand Slam finals).



    However the WTA beauty title goes to Elena Dementieva (far right)



    She looks like a Bond girl alright. Sharapova looks big-boned in comparison.

    As you wish




    Seriously tho', she's had one hell of a great year. If you asked me two years ago if I thought she would be a grand slam winner, I would not be affirmative. La France has already built a wax statue of her even before she won her slams, I wonder what tributes are up next.

    Well as a player Justine has the lot............backhand-forehand-off the ground-volley-vastly improved serve. She's had to contend with an awful lot in her life as well - full marks.

    Why is there a photo of a man in a womans swim suit on the cover of this tennis mag? Are we to beleive that this is Amelie? Or is SS been at the photoshop? I can't work this one out, sorry if I am missing the joke.

    She's got the most beautiful backhand in the women's game but its her forehand volley I admire more. Lots of snap and aggression there.

    Jammy, you don't read French obviously. That magazine cover was a joke.

    It's amazing & great luck for us blokes that 4 of the top 8 female tennis players are stunning & 3 attractive. Funny how interested in woman's tennis I've become

    Plus it strikes me as more skillfulplus it has more rallies than the male game.

    erm, its true I watch more women's matches than men's but mainly because I don't have the stamina to take in a full five-setter.

    Is the women's game more skilful? Hard to say, but I can tell ya the reason it has more rallies is becoz the gals lack the killer instinct to put out a quick finishing shot.


    SS

    ps: who's the eighth player you don't rank as stunning/attractive? Hingis with the receding hairline? ;)

    footnote: outside of the top 10 high achievers, Daniela Hantuchova is a player better noted for her looks than game.



    But my vote for most stunning female tennis player goes to ex-aussie Jelena Dokic.




    Slavic women have the best skin tones.

    Pity her dad fell out of the same tree as kennyk...

    Here are some actual comments taken off Ms Mauresmo at post-match interviews::nerd:


    "When you start off a new tournament, you want to do well."




    “Don't try to look where there's no point looking, ... I think she just played a better match than me today. She just played better tennis.”

    ...having a notaclue brain-fart:raoflmfao:


    “She's full of confidence, but this is a chance to set the record straight.”
