What’s Wimbledon without a little media controversy?

Seems as the Daily Mail (like all good English tabloids, always good for a few chuckles) has ratted out the All England Club’s tendency to prioritize the best looking players over the best players.

Evidently, the good looking women tennis players such as Gisela Dulko of Argentina (pictured) and Maria Sharapova of Russia play on the main stage which makes sense since they are headliners, but what about Victoria Azarenka of Belarus and Romania's Sorana Cirstea? Not exactly household names as one is seeded 28th and the other eighth.

In a story gloriously headlined “Babe, Set, Match,” the Daily Mail said “When it comes to choosing which women play on Centre Court, good looks count for more than big shots. While a succession of easy-on-the-eye unknowns have appeared in Wimbledon's prime arena, the top women's seeds have been relegated to lesser courts.”
