Anna Kournikova in 3D, That’s Almost Real, Right? Right??

Earlier this year I wrote a post that confirmed the myth of Eastern European women. In that post I wrote that every Eastern European woman is actually goodlooking is not a myth; It’s a reality.I really actually tried to crack the myth Mythbusters style.

And I showed photos of Victoria Azarenka and Anna Chakvetadze and Dominika Cibulkova. Photos of FHM. I was brutally corrected by Tom that it was the photoshoot for FHM and not Smash Magazine.

To further confirm this myth, Maxim magazine comes with a photoshoot of the poster girl of the myth; Anna Kournikova.  Anna Kournikova was once the most downloaded woman in the world.  Whenever you watched Wimbledon coverage on TV and they showed an Anna Kournikova match; The stadium was sold out whether she played on Centre Court or Court 20! And it wasn’t just the boys she attracted, having been a longstanding member of the official Kournikova website forum I can confirm that lots of girls were into her as well.

Anna features on the cover of Maxim magazine for the fifth time already.  And what’s great about this part is that it has got 3D photos of Anna Kournikova. That’s almost  as if she’s standing live in my room eh?

In the interview with Maxim, Anna talks about her dual citizenship having become an American recently:

“You know, I’ve always considered myself half Russian and half American. It never seemed to really matter if I had a passport or not. But when I started working with the USO and the troops overseas, it just seemed the logical next step…”

On her lovelife she said the following:

“Single as in on paper? ‘Yes, but I’m in a relationship.”

If you want to read more then I suggest you visit the Maxim site to ‘read up’ on Anna Kournikova’s latest.

Thanks to the boys of Egotastic,  I have managed to find the video to go with the photoshoot. So that’s a nice extra add on. Enjoy the photos and take a vote in our poll after the photos and video.

My name is Stephane Carter. And I am here to inform you that the myth that every Eastern European female tennis player is goodlooking  is actually not a myth. No, it’s a fact. I have been an avid tennis fan for more than 20 years.  And in all those years that I have followed the WTA Tour I have never ever seen a not goodlooking  Eastern European female tennis player.

And to further backup my statement I got the pics to show for it! I am sure you all will agree. If not then I am forced to use my Jedi Mindtrick on you!!

The gallery features Victoria Azarenka, Anna Chakvetadze, Alona Bondarenko and Dominika Cibulkova! Yup, life just doesn’t come better than that. The scans were made from Smash Magazine 2009.

Things To Do At A Tennis Tournament

Imagine this:  You are traveling from continent to continent. Live in hotels one week after the other.  You work hard, you play matches , you eat something and it’s back to the hotel room. Week in, week out.  Now that gets dull after a while. I don’t blame Marat Safin for being bored with the tour if you put it that way.

But you are also in different countries, you can take some time off to wander around town. Visit places that most of us won’t ever get to see. Plus you get paid for it too.

Elena Dementieva for example entertains herself with her cactuses’.  Maria Sharapova runs off to do a photoshoot or another fashion item for whatever magazine.

The following guys found another way to entertain themselves.  Rather than spending a lot of time being bored  in hotelrooms, they turned into fashion models.  Luckily for us here at TennisGrandstand, someone shot the photos of it.

Enjoy the photos of the following players on the catwalk at the Roger Cup in Montreal:

– Mischa Zverev
– Novak Djokovic
– Tommy Robredo
– Mark Knowles
– Jeremy Chardy
