    Why not, TP? She’s an amazing tennis athlete and a beautiful woman who just can’t walk.

      People squealed and howled and yelled about Serena’s nude pose for the cover last year too. I think the ladies look elegant and beautiful, and I don’t see the problem.

      Actually, I take that back. There *is* a problem — why don’t they ever ask Roger, Rafa, or Ferru?

      Funny anecdote – Rafa was asked, when posing with Esther for, I think, a US Open Kids Day promotion, if he would ever try to do wheelchair tennis. He said no. When asked why not, he said with a smile, “Too difficult!” 🙂

        “why don’t they ever ask Roger, Rafa, or Ferru” 😈 Keep an eye on your mail box!

        LOL Rafa, you know when you’re beat! 🙂

        Posted and gone into moderation, M. I promise it’s decent.

        Hee hee. Thank you, Jenny, for whatever it is – of course I trust your taste!

        *jumps up and down in anticipation*

    What’s wrong with that, TP? Like Jenny said, she’s an amazing player (if there’s any player around who truly deserves the GOAT-tag, it’s her!) and a very pretty lady. It’s brave of her to do this and show that people in wheelchairs aren’t always ‘deplorable’. Kudos to her!

      I can only agree, Shree V. I anticipate this post will create two parallel response threads: one with urinals, and one without… In fact it is doing so already.

    Just because she is limited to wheel chair does not mean that she should not enjoy life.I appriciate her courage.She is an inspiration for others.

    Is it the fact that she’s posing nude for a magazine called “the body issue” that’s bothering you, TP?

  6. RafaFan said

    TP is freaking out because he can’t see her important body parts! He thinks it’s unfair! TP: “Are you freaking kidding me!” Geeeeeezzzz

    Much ado over nothing, methinks.

    I respect her right to do it. I have to be honest, it is a little unsettling for me to look at.

    tp, sir v, super m:

    what’s bothering you guyz? the wheelchair? can’t see beyond that huh? esther’s lovely… & accomplished!

    Ok…i’m retracting my “much ado about nothing.” ANYTHING that helps people look at people as people rather than throw them in a box/catagory (such as “handicapped”) is good. In some small way, then, this helps. (And this society can use all the help it can get.) You can criticize her for posing nude, but then you better be criticizing everyone for posing nude. I would hope you wouldn’t criticize her for posing nude because she is in a wheelchair.
