marion bartoli wins Wimbledon

“Do you think [Marion] Bartoli’s dad told her when she was little: ‘You’re never going to be a looker, you’ll never be a [Maria] Sharapova, so you have to be scrappy and fight’?

Yeah, BBC’s Radio 5 Live host John Inverdale actually said this after Marion Bartoli defeated Sabine Lisicki to win the woman’s Grand Slam title this weekend at Wimbledon, managing to be offensive on multiple levels. One, it’s just plain rude! Two, there’s the suggestion that a hot blonde female tennis player doesn’t have to play as hard. Sure, attractiveness may have something to do with scoring endorsement deals off the court, but on the court, appearance has absolutely no bearing on skill.  Keep reading »

Andy Murray Wins Wimbledon After 77-Year British Drought

Andy Murray Wins Wimbledon

It seems only fitting that on 7/7/2013, a Brit should reclaim the Wimbledon crown after 77 years. Today Andy Murray finally put a nation out of its misery and won Wimbledon. The Scot became the first Brit to win the tennis championship since Fred Perry in 1936. He beat world No. 1 Novak Djokovicin straight sets.

The match seemed like it was comfortably in Murray’s hands from the very beginning. Not only did he have the enormous home court advantage but Novak was coming off a grueling 5-set semi-final match against Juan Martin del Potro that left him noticeably fatigued. Read more on Celeb Dirty Laundry…

The Danish tennis player Caroline Wozniacki has been accused of racism after she stuffed her bra and skirt, to give the appearance of ample breasts and butt, on the court yesterday, apparently mimicking her fellow women’s tennis player Serena Williams. Wozniacki was playing a game in Sao Paolo, Brazil, against Anna Kournikova when, with a big grin on her face, she stuffed small towels down her frontside and backside to give herself cariacturishly large proportions. She played for a minute or two dressed like that, as the audience chuckled, before pulling the towels out. You can watch a video of the incident after the jump. Keep reading »

I am obsessed with Serena Williams. In fact, she’s kind of my idol. I mean, this woman can serve a tennis ball at 128 miles per hour(!), win $38 million in prize money, wear a lycra catsuit at the US Open, swear at line judges, guest star on “Law and Order: SVU,” sell clothes on the Home Shopping Network, and become a certified nail technician. She is a goddess. Needless to say, I think she looks sizzling in this tight red dress she wore for a post-gold medal appearance on “Letterman.” Paired with embellished platforms and big, beautiful hair, this outfit is freakin’ fierce. Game, set, match! [Photo: Splash News]

French Tennis Player Says Men Deserve To Be Paid More Than Women

Today's Lady News photo
  • French tennis player Gilles Simon recently said male players should be paid more than females at Grand Slam tennis events. When there was pushback against his remarks, he only dug the hole deeper, saying, “My point was that I have the feeling that men’s tennis is actually more interesting than women’s tennis. As in any business or anything, you just have to be paid just about that. It’s not because we play five sets and they are playing three.” Not surprisingly, Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova both vehemently disagree. What do you think about his remarks? (I’m not going to pretend to know much about professional tennis here.) [ESPN, Sports Illustrated] Keep reading »

I, on the other hand, have little to no problem with it. I mean, it’s just a fact that athletes are often good-looking and I definitely don’t mind ogling some hot bodies.
