In recent years, women’s tennis has become more enjoyable to watch than men’s tennis. It might be because most points include some volleying back and forth instead of ace city in men’s matches. Maybe it’s because you’re sick of Andy Roddick’s inability to win a big match. Or it’s possible that women’s tennis players have become sex symbols…and hot blondes beat a sweaty Rafa Nadal any day any time anywhere.
Maria Sharapova and Victoria Azarenka will face off in the land down under Saturday in the Australian Open Final. And while Maria’s grunting might annoy the pants off you, it’s music to my ears and soothes, uh, well. Miss Azarenka has the grunting ability…and the legs to match up well against Maria. It’ll be like a Las Vegas showgirls production with a little bit of sweat. Count me in.
Who’s your pick: Sharapova or Azarenka?
We’ll take Maria in three sets…my would we ever.
