The Beautiful Women of the Australian Open

A recent article in yardbarker.com advertized the beautiful women of the 2013 Australian Open.  If these women weren’t top notch athletes making beaucoup bucks, I would have thought that I was looking at the latest contestants in a girly magazine or an enticement from an on-line dating service called Eastern European Brides.

Many of the tennis stars pictured had names like Azarenka, Sharapova, Radwanska, Kvitova, Ivanovic, Cibulkova, Kirilenko, Zakopalova, Pavlyuchenkova, Pironkova, Hantuchova, Govortsova, Hlavackova and Puchkova.

Petra Kvitova, Karla Zakopalova and Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova represent Italy in the Australian Open.  Yes, pretty common names in Italy, I think.

I ask for your candid opinion.

Olga Puchkova of Russia starts her warm up session.

Victoria Azarenka of Belarus is ready to serve (you).

So is Dominika Cibulkova of Slovakia.

Yalina Wickmayer of Belgium is advertizing a new sports bra.

The_Australian5

Arantxa Rus of the Netherlands is advertizing – well – a new anti-itch cream.

I’m sold.  What are the dates for the 2014 Australian Open?

  1. Don’t blame them ’cause they’re beautiful. They can’t help it. Pity them for the curse they must bare (to the world, I guess). I for one will watch them in order to show my support. And, if they choose to do a naked protest of some sort, I will support that with both hands open–and a loving heart, of course. HF

  2. I don’t even like tennis, and now I want to watch it.

  3. Eleven people liked this post before me, and none of them gave you the most important information …. Thursday 16 January to Wednesday 29 January 2014 in Melbourne, Australia

  4. At last, something you are not curmudgeonly about … revealing (!) no?

  5. Scratching your ass in front of millions of viewers = priceless.

  6. I knew I picked the wrong genes and the wrong sport to take up. You don’t see women like that in curling.

  7. I’m pretty sure I’m becoming a regular spectator of the women’s tennis tour.

  8. The woman in me is annoyed that these athletes would pose for images like this (well, the scratcher isn’t exactly posing, but she does appear to have forgotten her undies), but the blogger in me is wondering what search terms will now bring folks to your blog after posting these pics…

  9. haha! Umm…. this is a bit of a departure from the days of Martina Navratilova. That’s all I’m going to say. No, I’ll say one more thing. Isn’t it sad that it’s not enough to have athletic ability anymore, now you have to look like a hottie to compete? What are they selling here? Never mind.
