Why isn't she skinny for him? That's all I don't understand. She was quite the stunner back when she wasn't so plump.

Because being skinny isn't a virtue. Because the so-called 'body' image of a person is trivial and insignificant. Because love, marriage and motherhood doesn't need any of that "skinniness". And Roger understands all that.

You are just assuming he likes them skinny, which isn't necessarily true.
Also, maybe her metabolism works in such a way that losing weight requires too much effort and sacrifices and maybe Fed knows this and just wants his wife to actually enjoy life.
I am lucky and I don't need to worry about this shit, but I look at some of my friends and I feel extremely sorry for them and for their obsession with weight. And I honestly believe no man is worth such an effort.

And anyway, she has better things to worry about like i don't now... being a good mom and a good wife?

Re: Post Pics of Tennis players with their girlfriends or wives

More Fed, from an interview with the Wall Street Journal:

How much does Mirka sacrifice to make all this happen?

It’s all me for her. I admire her every day that she is willing to do this. I tell her, ‘I think you should take a week here or a week there, take care of yourself a bit more, because you are putting in an incredible amount of work here.’ But she says, ‘Look, I’m not happy when you’re not around.’ And that’s as good as it gets for me, and I’m obviously also not the same person when she and the kids are not around. So we try to manage it. It’s good to have a balance. We try to make it work that we have time by ourselves, time with the family, time with our friends in this busy, busy life that we live.

How much have you been apart?

The last three years, maybe three weeks, maybe four? Really not much, so I consider myself so, so fortunate that that’s the case. And of course that we have the means to make it work with the girls, so I’m happy and feel fortunate.

Well, as Coluta said, if women only had to put a bit of effort into it to be skinny, don't you think women would stop obsessing over their weight and making themselves crazy with diets that don't work?
It really isn't that easy. Everyone has a different metabolism, and women (or men) are definitely not equal in that regard.
Women's bodies are "designed" by nature to put on fat and to keep that fat (because nature is an old-fashioned bitch and thinks we're only there to have babies ). That's why when we exercise, from what I've read, it takes 40min of sustained effort to only *begin* losing fat, whereas men who exercise start shedding fat almost as soon as they start exercising.
So, basically, nature makes it extremely hard for women to be skinny unless they're naturally skinny, and society puts the most pressure on them to be skinny, which is kind of f**** up when you think about it.

So, what happened to Mirka? For one, she used to be a tennis player, I believe. That's what kept her skinnier, if you exercise like 7 or 8 hours a day, it's not that hard to be skinny (and even then, if you're not made to be skinny, you still won't be, I guess).

Then, she stopped playing and logically gained weight. AND she's had babies! Pregnancy can change your body and your metabolism dramatically. Some women will be completely unaffected, and some will put on a LOT of weight and never be able to go back to their former weight, no matter how hard they try. Age also slows down metabolism to make things even worse.

Add to this the fact that if she works a lot for Roger's career and has to take care of the kids, she probably doesn't have much time to exercise anyway...
And although I agree with you that she was probably prettier when she was younger, I still think she's a beautiful woman and Roger seems to be perfectly happy with her. It's not her fault that many other WAGs look like Barbie dolls (and often, appear to have nothing else to do than watch their men play tennis, so I guess they have time for exercising, too )

Who cares if it's harder for women to lose weight? Who said women (especially those associated with athletes or celebrities) have to be skinny, and if they're not that makes them less pretty or less worthy of being a an althete or celebrities girlfriend/wife. Just a disgusting comment.
