Confessions of Tennis Players: The WTA Interviews Players About Life on the Tour

Ever saw how uncannily accurate some players serve? We all saw the Roger Federer video and like he says a magician never reveals his tricks (right back at ya!). I got a video of Agnieszka Radwanska who is doing a little target practice who deserves equally as much credit for being so incredibly accurate.

The WTA Tour’s video collection doesn’t stop there. Next video we have is an interview of  Flavia Pennetta with  a colorful description that matches her personality:

One of the most stylish players on the Tour, Flavia Pennetta, lives a glamorous life traveling the world. Or does she? We caught up with one of the brightest stars of women’s tennis to find out what life is like for Flavia off court. We found out how she relaxes, who she hangs out with, and most important of all: where she likes to go shopping.

Jarmila Groth is an emerging player who recently switched nationality from Slovakian to Australian. And that switch is what the next video is all about .

Jarka Groth – winner of the Landsky Lighting Guangzhou International Women’s Open – became an Australian citizen at the end of 2009. But how much does she really know about Australia? We thought we’d test her knowledge in our Unofficial Australian Citizenship Test. How do you think she did?

And yes do let us know how you think she did. I am always interested in people’s opinions so don’t hold back.

Next up is Akgul Amanmuradova.

Akgul Amanmuradova is a talented athlete. The Uzbek star is currently enjoying one of her best seasons on the WTA Tour to date, but it could have been very different. Because Akgul is also a talented basketball player, as we found out.

Not only is she a talented tennis player but she is 1.90 meters tall or as you Americans say 6 ft 3 inch. She can always try out for the WNBA if tennis doesn’t work out.

Another player who seems to have a second calling in this lifetime is none other than US Open 2010 winner Kim Clijsters. She took time out from US Open training and did one of the most honorable things in sports; Throw the first pitch in a baseball game.

What made Kim Clijsters take time out of training for the US Open to throw out the first pitch at the Mets Game? Was she nervous? Did she practice beforehand? Watch as WTA takes you behind the scenes at Citi Field Stadium.

Now for something different. Yesterday I wrote an article about Anna Kournikova being the poster girl for goodlooking Eastern European girls I have received not only five comments but also an incredibly insightful one.

YOU NEED TO GET YOUR HEAD EXAMINED AND YOUR EYES A GOOD CHECK OUT BECAUSE THERE ARE A HANDFUL OF EASTERN EUROPEAN GOOD LOOKING WOMAN SO GO TO THE DR THERE ARE MORE BEAUTIFUL WOMAN IN SO MANY OTHER COUNTRIES SPAIN MEXICO AND THE BEST LOOKING WOMAN IVE EVER SEEN ARE FROM VENEZUELA GORGEOUS GIRLS ALL OF SOUTH AMERICA ARE GORGEOUS WOMAN AND DONT FORGET ‘BRAZIL’ THE BEST GORGEOUS AND THE BODIES TO DIE FOR NOBODY WOULD EVEN LOOK AT ANNA KOURNIKOVA THERE

Well apparently my mental health is just isn’t what it used to be. Neither are my eyes.  But I did check out the other countries having been to all the countries, except Venezuela, you mention.  And how can I forget Brazil when my ex fiancee hails from Brazil.

Very interesting comments you have there but in my article I did not exclude any of the other countries you mention. I never said that that Brazil, Venezuela, Spain and Mexico did not have goodlooking women. I merely pointed out that the Eastern European women on the tennis tour are incredibly goodlooking.  That is all.

And just to once again confirm the myth; Here is another video of the FHM shoot with Victoria Azarenka and Anna Chakvetadze.

And to bug you even more with Anna Kournikova I have added an extra bonus in the form of a gallery of Anna Kournikova and Martina Hingis playing an exhibition match at the US Open 2010.
