I think she's hot! ;-()
she is still super hot. when I was a kid, I was in love with her. Chris was absolutely stunning, so feminine, yet distanced (just like Emma  :whistle:)

now, I think CD came up with 'The Serbian Slayer' nick for Djokovic. I'm not sure if he posted that nick on MTF or here first, but guys are still using that nick on all tennis boards.

I hope you are subscribing to Tennis Magazine since she owns it!  She got the money from Greg Norman after their short marriage and brought "Tennis".  Each month see appears as the editor and is dress to thrill.  I think she got a "enhancement" in her body I think it looks like a  large "B" cup too.  She was a "A" when she played on the tour.  Just recently, she is also an tennis analyst with ESPN too.  You can see how she has develop too.  Might be a few facial enhancement too by the way.  I thought she was the perfect hardnose tennis player until Steffi came along and then she was the Queen of being a "hardnose" competitor.   Both did well afterwards too.

interesting. so she cleaned Shark`s clock.
maybe that is why she married him. she put on show for a while and he fell for her. we have to hear his side of the story obviously before we make any assumptions. who dumped who for instance?
and that is probably what katie holmes is doing to tom cruise. she knew he was worth $400 million.

After over 25 years of subscription, I dropped it a few years ago.
Not because of Chrissy though. :)

Adriano Panatta?
I was at this casino minding my own business, and this guy came up to me and said, "You're gonna have to move, you're blocking a fire exit." As though if there was a fire, I wasn't gonna run. If you're flammible and have legs, you are never blocking a fire exit.  - Mitch Hedberg

fausto gardini---the very lanky italian clay court specialist--was the right answer.
