It has been a while since I last wrote a post about the this Russian beauty. I read that she still has tennis on her mind. Even if she lost last week in Dubai in the first round last week. What I can’t believe is that the writer is that cynical and actually wonders if she still has anything to look for in the game of tennis. Ofcourse she does!! Not only do we enjoy her appearance (whether or not it is in Stella McCartney’s attire) we also enjoy her game. And that is not just because of the way she looks because let’s be honest here: Kirilenko is a real looker but the girl also got game. And game enough to win top tiered tournaments me thinks. Because I am one of those who does not believe that her runs at the Australian Open are flukes.
“I’m still not very old yet. I still have a few years to play for sure,” Kirilenko told Gulf News after a fourth straight first round exit in Dubai.
Even though she is off form recently and trying to find her game again, I am fully confident that Wimbledon would place her on Centre Court in a heartbeat this summer. And the following photos prove why she should be on Centre Court in the first place.
Actually I am wondering how she will fare during the March Madness. It would not be impossible for her to actually reach the quarters.
