Womens Tennis, Sex Appeal Gets The Ratings

How many here watch women's tennis for 'the game' only? Anyone tune in to watch the sport of women's tennis for the great athletic ability or do you watch because of the great outfits and the great looking women that are dominating the sport of women's tennis?

I will admit that the US Open is one of my favorite tennis events and I will tune in to watch the games from the quarterfinals through the finals, no matter who is playing in the women's game, quite frankly, those games are more exciting than the mens games.

However, when I get word that Maria Sharpova, Serena Williams, Jennifer Capriati and a host of others are playing in any round, I'm tuning in for a few mintues just to catch a few minutes of pure sex appeal. Recently Serena Williams made a comment stating, "She’s sexy," in refrence to Maria Sharpova. Serena also went on to say, “I know a lot of people who are 12 and doing things they shouldn’t be doing,” she said. “Whether you’re an actress or a singer, it’s always the sexier ones that are selling more tickets or selling more albums."

Well Serena, your 100% right and I'm gald that someone famous has come out and made a statement like this rather than reading it on a sports website. The press/media always get a bad rap when they come out and make comments and statements like this, but now that we have athletes coming out and saying this we can now see that they are thinking the way that most of us in our living rooms are thinking when we watch a sporting event and or T.V. show.
