Melbourne: Women’s tennis is apparently being taken over by hot and beautiful players, according to a report.
Be it No.1 Caroline Wozniacki, or Maria Sharapova, or Vera Zvonareva – at least half of the top female tennis players are so beautiful that they can very well become models, claims the report.
The advantage is obvious as the hotter the player is, the more she would catch the eye of coaches and sponsors early in her career, reports the Age.
In fact the report suggested that some beautiful players often get to play on centre court even if they are unseeded.
During Wimbledon’s early rounds this year, some of the more attractive but unseeded players, such as Gisela Dulko, Sorana Cirstea and Maria Kirilenko, were picked to play on centre court, while some of the higher-ranked but less attractive players were relegated to the outer courts.
A BBC spokesman confirmed that, even though the decision was in the hands of Wimbledon officials, “our preference would always be a Brit or a babe, as this always delivers high viewing figures”.
