Wimbledon Opts for Hotties Over Talent


In a SHOCKING development, a spokesman at the All England Club admitted that when it comes to choosing who plays at center court “Good looks are a factor.” Several matches were held recently at the premier court that featured lower ranked female players while top seeds were relegated to less-prestigious courts.

According to the BBC who broadcast the matches in the UK, “It’s the Wimbledon play committee, not us who decides on the order of play. But obviously it’s advantageous to us if there are good-looking women players on Centre Court. No one has heard of many of the women now, so if they are pretty it definitely gives them an edge. Our preference would always be a Brit or a babe as this always delivers high viewing figures.”

So, the after Roger Federer played on Friday, the next match at center court featured two 19 year old hotties, Victoria Azarenka (8th seed) and Sorana Cirstea (28th seed), while that same day #2 seed Serana Williams was shunted to the number 2 court.

Even better, on Wednesday unseeded Gisela Dulko (world rank: 45) faced off against Maria Sharapova (also unseeded and currently world ranked 60) in a so-called “Battle of the Babes.” Thursday featured a similar bumping when 9th seed Caroline Wozniacki won her match on center court while #1 seed Dinara Safina was force to play on an outer court.

Johnny Perkins, the spokesman at All England added to his earlier comment saying court selection is “a great big mixture of where the players are in the draw, who they’re playing, what their ranking is.” But, “It’s not a coincidence that those (on Centre Court) are attractive.”

Of course, I’d be horribly remiss to not showcase some of these highly talented women tennis stars, just as the folks at Wimbledon have, so, after the jump join us.
