"Oh I say, the hemlines are shorter than ever at Wimbledon this year"

It's nice to see that during the football World Cup, some papers are aware of the existence of other sports. With arguably the biggest tournament in the world, Wimbledon, just starting, kudos to The Daily Mail for introducing some in depth review of the tournament so far;

Page 3, The Daily Mail, 22/06/2010

That's right, the moral rock that is The Daily Mail decided today that their page 3 would be devoted to drooling over semi-naked, jail-bait young, girls.  Not for the first time either.

Already assuming that no-one has any interest in the game, we get a quick analysis of two players including world number 28, Maria Kirilenko;

"Catching the eye with their outfits rather than their tennis were Stefanie Voegele and Maria Kirilenko, who wore particularly skimpy outfits, showing off their toned thighs - and a little more besides..."
Surprisingly Ana Ivanovic then gets the next portion of coverage.  What do we need to know about her?  Well, we learn that she has been voted world sexiest tennis player five time and she wore leggings beneath her mini-dress.

Fascinating.

And rejoice readers because Laura Robson is sixteen!  This means that the Daily Mail and it's readers can say what they want and not sound creepy at all!  Take for example, David in the Comments section;

"... are you really a man ? Didnt you know that attractive females are sex objects!!!....Skirts can never be too short, girls can never be too young, (within reason!) ... and they can never be too thin, again (within reason!) ... Thats the way they like it !!" David, London, 22/06/2010 22:34
We also get an in depth look at Maria Sharapova's training methods (it involves stretching and bending over in front of the camera apparently) and also lots of updates from good looking players from around the world; sorry uglies, your participation means nothing to us.  In fact, neither does anyone in the top 15 world rankings bar Jelena Jankovic. And I presume the cameraman couldn't get his zoom up her skirt to see her knickers, because there are no pictures of her at all.

And to finish the article we of course get coverage of girls eating strawberries and cream.  Good job there's nothing sinister about printing pictures of young girls with cream dribbling down their chins.
