Centre Court Only For 'Pretty' Wimbledon Women

wimbledon_2Jul09.jpg They might have finally dropped the 'Miss', but don't start thinking the All England Club have gone all feminist. After some of the top women wondered why they were playing on smaller courts while their less highly ranked opponents were rallying on Centre, spokesman Johnny Perkins admitted to the Daily Mail that "good looks are a factor", with a BBC 'source' agreeing "our preference would always be a Brit or a babe". Oh, how very unreconstructed. These people should watch where they're walking during week two, in case a 'stray' ball or racket catches them in the unmentionables and makes them do some grunting of their own. (Image / vic15)
