Nice to see her, but far from a perfect date

"Simply put, Anna is impressive, but this DVD doesn't quite match up. With a run time of only 42 minutes, there's still enough to see of the most alluring woman in pro tennis, and the video is moderately satisfying overall. This being a project for the 2003 Anna Kournikova Calendar, the nearest thing I can compare it to is one of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit videos, but with maybe a step down in overall production quality. Problems: the soundtrack was mildly annoying (i.e., loud), and there was nothing about any of the commentary that was intriguing. The DVD "extras" are unexciting. I watched it once, but am not dying to watch it again.
Yes, Anna's good looks can certainly put a tear in the eye of a straight guy, and the camera work here is acceptable, although not as sharp as I had hoped (give it a B+). I happen to think this girl is a knockout in Hollywood evening attire, but because this photo shoot took place in Mexico, Anna's wardrobe consisted primarily of cowgirl outfits (Russian girl meets ranchero, cute) and swimsuits. Fair enough. Somewhat of a problem was the soundtrack; not the music itself (mainly south of the border tunes), but with a volume level that had the unfortunate effect of drowning out some of the dialog at times. I also noticed that the mariachi ensemble was dubbed over with songs that didn't relate to what the band was playing. As for the commentary, it was kind of drab: Anna's "if you're confident, you can be beautiful" revelations mixed with photographer Bill Ling's "Anna has model qualities" praise.
Most of the DVD extras were disappointing in that they consisted of short replays lifted from the feature (not really "extra" if you think about it). In one of the bonus tracks (4 minutes), you can watch Anna play a dozen tennis points recorded from an exhibition match versus Conchita Martinez which took place in Zaragosa, Spain, in December of 2002. Anna wins all the points, either by groundstroke winner or cleverly angled volleys, but, if I'm correct about the match, it was a 6-3, 7-5 Martinez win.
Overall, this is a halfway decent DVD, worth watching once, maybe twice."

"The ESPN TV special featuring the single most beautiful tennis player in existence is now on DVD, with added extras--including a look at Anna's 2002 Calendar shoot and a look at one of her tennis matches. Anna Kournikova is, obviously, quite beautiful, and this DVD showcases it by going behind the scenes of her 2003 calendar photo shoot. She holds her own against any supermodel out there, I'd say. If you're an Anna K fan, this is a must-have."
A fine young lady, and a great dvd!!!

"For (...) those of us who fantasized about her, this is the dvd of your dreams. Anna models mini, micro, tiny skirts, bikinis, and skimpy outfits galore, she talks, she smiles, and it's all very candid. You get to see pleanty of her hot legs, and a lot of skin. A great dvd, if you like anna, you;ll love it. She's hot!!!!! and this dvd captures all her beauty and sensuality."
TENNIS, ANYONE ??

"This appears to be the only "cheesecake" DVD featuring Russian tennis star Anna Kournikova. There are multiple Kournikova wall calendars. But this is the only calendar video that I've found.
So ... what's not to like?
Anna's hot and ... she's even pretty good at tennis. Say what you want about Anna not having the "game" to go along with her looks, but she has inspired many Russian women to follow in her wake, including Maria Sharapova, Anastasia Myskina, Elena Dementieva, Svetlana Kuznetsova, Nadia Petrova and Vera Zvonareva.
But if you are somehow expecting Anna to be nude, I'm afraid you'll be sorely disappointed. Hot she is. Nude she's not. Give it a shot."
