Wimbledon hopeful Simona Halep wants surgery to reduce the size of her breasts.
 
 

Halep is seen as one of the tennis stars of the future after winning a host of junior titles and a place in the final of the junior French Open last year.

But the 5-foot-5-inch Romanian tennis star said she thinks her 34DD bust is holding her back.

"This fall I'll have a breast reduction operation," Halep said. "The breasts make me uncomfortable when I play."

"It's the weight that troubles me (and) my ability to react quickly," she added.
 

 
 
WILL SOMEONE PLEASE TELL THIS KID THAT WINNING ISN'T EVERYTHING!!  THIS SELFISH SPOILED LITTLE BI*CH SHOULDN'T BE SO CONSUMED WITH "WINNING MAJOR TENNIS TOURNAMENTS"!!!  WHAT ABOUT US.... THE HARD-WORKIN EVERYDAY FAN????

 Other option is to play topless and compete against the men, she will win every tourney.

Or she could change sports altogether.  I hear Topless Golf is all the rage.

 OK well I just have to comment.

This is really one of the more sexist things I've read on epic for a long time.  If this woman finds something about her physique is holding her back from her goals and her passion in life - who do you think you are to object?

From GarryZ in another thread, but seems appropriate.

Why should she impress you ?  What do you expect from women ?  I'd bet she wasn't impressed by you either nor did she care whether you thought she was good enough for your intentions.

You, sir are a big part of the division between the sexes and the acceptance of female representatives at any level.

Does she impress you now as a former Senator and current secretary of State or does the fact  you seem to  think she's not your equal by birthright influence your thinking ?

I'm impressed and think she's quite an admirable woman. But I tend to respect people by their expressions and deeds and not what slimy picture you can conjure up in an elevator

Did she have a lazy eye or something ?  Bad makeup ?   She was never presented as a beauty pageant player why would her sexuality be a factor ? Heck it would seem Bill's not impressed by that either by his actions but he finds much more in her heart and soul that keeps them together

I find that impressive

If after she gets the reduction she becomes a top player I will eat my shoe.

They might get in the way a little, but either you got it or you dont.  Those gifts of GOD are not why shes isn't the best at tennis.

 Ya know Richie, I never heard of this girl until you posted. Being a big fan of boobs, and seeing that your links were broken, I felt that it was my duty to do a search.  First thought was "WOW!". Second thought was that she may well have a point. I don't know how women deal with those things anyway. It's just too bad she can't be a breast-donor considering how many women would love to have a pair of those.

BTW - I think you should eat the shoe now. It seems that she pretty much already is a top player.

I'd be using a lot of drop shots against her to see her running to the net then have to bend over to get them

SMJ, appreciating TWO of God's creations for what it is to men isn't that out of bounds.  Rude, crude, unsavory yes, but it's totally tongue in cheek (yes, that was pun intended)

God gave us laughter, women also make plenty of anatomy related comments about men in sports.  Let bygones be bygones once in awhile. 
P.S.  Spell check wanted to change that to "Let big ones be big ones".  I sense a divine message here.

 I agree.  But appreciating and calling it a complete waste for someone to do what they want to do is not the same thing.

Not to mention this.

Humor? Sure.  Incredibly sexist?  Definitely.

If it's not ironic, it isn't funny =>   If it's funny, it isn't sexist.

I remember one day many years ago I fell asleep watching TV on the couch one Saturday and started to wake up hearing what I thought was the Playboy Channel,  Naw, no playboy action, just Monica Seles

Really?  I've heard some pretty racist jokes that were funny.  I've heard some pretty funny jokes that were anti-semitic. 

I don't see how they are mutually exclusive.  Funny, cruel.

<shrug>  Put another way:  My sense of humor in these things requires that I assume the jokester is being ironic.

Don't forget fat people jokes. Question of the day.  Is it still wrong if one is an "equal opportunity offender"? 

Tawk amongst yourselves



I personally draw the line at ethnic jokes about death or genocide.   But poking fun at our idiosyncratic differences such as people of a certain persuasion being habitually late to meetings is fair game to me.
