Total Pro Sports – In the continuing saga that is Simona Halep’s 34DD breasts, a possible savior may have just turned up in the nick of time. That savior is none other than Alena Schurkova, the size 32E former volleyball star.
The rising 17-year-old tennis star has received a lot of attention because of her busty figure. The focus on her then increased when she announced her intentions to reduce her breast size just over a week ago. Late last week, reports indicated that she had booked her date for surgery in the fall. Why did she decide to do such a thing? Halep responded with the following:
“The breasts make me uncomfortable when I play. It’s the weight that troubles me – my ability to react quickly.”
At that point many had thought all hope was lost, but here comes Alena Schurkova to the rescue. Alena was South Africa’s top seeded volleyball player at one time, and has stated that such a decision for Simona would do more harm than good:
“If she does this it sends out the message that girls with big boobs can’t play sports and that is just wrong. I am 32E and I have never found them to be a problem. To be honest I wouldn’t mind having bigger boobs. I could be double what I have and I would still be OK to perform. I do a lot more explosive movements than her, throwing myself around on the beach volleyball court, so I don’t really understand the argument that it’s restrictive having bigger breasts.” [TheSun]
She also mentioned the negative effect that such a layoff could pose to the young star at this point in her career:
“There will definitely be a long lay-off for recovery. Compared to Breast Augmentation, reduction is rather invasive and severe. With that long lay-off her fitness level will go down, no question about it. So time lost on court and getting back to fitness could harm her career more than having big breasts.”
Alena would also point to another female tennis player, Serena Williams, as proof that breasts need not be an obstacle in one’s game. Instead, all that is really needed is a “good support bra.”
It will now be interesting to see if Simona Halep takes this sound advice. Alena makes a valid point when using herself and Serena Williams as examples. She maybe should have also mentioned the publicity that giant “sweater-puppets” can get you, although that perhaps is something Simona may have already figured out herself. An unknown for her tennis skills, the name “Simona Halep” has begun to grow ever more popular, and being ranked 315th in the world, we don’t suppose that has anything to do with what she has done on the court thus far.
Make us proud Simona. Make the right decision and play with what you parents gave you. In a sports world that is being overrun by performance enhancing drugs and other artificialities, it is time for someone to step up and become the poster child for “staying natural.” You can be that someone!
