The 35 Hottest Female Tennis Players of All Time
Tennis' Bond Girls
I remember when I was about 12 years old, waking up early in the morning to watch Wimbledon on HBO. I really don’t know why I decided to watch Wimbledon during that time. I really couldn’t have cared less about tennis, yet I felt the need to watch every match. Maybe I was just excited I actually had HBO, but anyways. I remember seeing a young, unknown blonde tennis player by the name of Anna Kournikova. Although I was only 12 years old at the time, I knew Kournikova was something special, and that special something was her extreme hotness.
I feel that Kournikova is somewhat of a pioneer. Ever since she started her tennis career, a cornucopia of Russian tennis players has graced our television sets with their skills and beauty. Doing this list was complicated for one reason and one reason only - - the names!
If Scripps needs a list for their next National Spelling Bee, I might as well hand them over a list of tennis players. Like the caption states, all these ladies look and sound like they could be Bond girls. I had to triple check the spelling on a lot of these ladies, and I’m sure I still misspelled a few, so forgive me.
Nevertheless, here is a list that has no wrong answers. Here are the 35 hottest female tennis players of all-time, not including Anna Kournikova because she's pictured above and is in a league by herself. Some of these women have won grand slam titles, while others have never even cracked the top 200. But every single one of them has cracked the top 35 on my list.
Who cares what Amanda Coetzer did in her professional career with a picture like this.
Majeric barely cracks the top 200 in rankings, but winning isn't a part of the criteria for this list.
Chieppa's winning percentage is below .500 for her career.
Lisicki's greatest success is reaching the semifinals of Wimbledon in 2011.
Cetkovska had complications throughout her tennis career due to a freak childhood accident that caused brain trauma.
Poutchkova is also a model - - shocker.
Vaidisova retired from the game in 2010, with her greatest achievements being semifinal appearances in the French and Australian Open.
Goerges has won four double titles. I'm sure it wasn't very hard for her to get a partner if it was mixed doubles.
Jankovic was ranked number one in 2008, but she has never won a grand slam title.
Penneta reached the top 10 in 2009, becoming Italy's first female top 10 player ever.
Fact: I have never met an unattractive woman named Gabriela.
I didn't live in the 1970s, but I have to imagine Chris Evert was a sex symbol of sorts during that time period.
In 2009, she reached the highest rank (22nd) of her career.
Dementieva reached a couple grand slam finals but never won a championship. Her greatest achievement was winning the gold medal in Beijing.
Alright, the goal for this slideshow is to not have a debate on Serena Williams' attractiveness or the lack there of. Oh, who am I kidding? That's like asking for peace in the Middle East. As I've said before, she's the biggest enigma out there. For the record, I tend to agree with the nasty comments, but there are people out there who do find her very attractive.
Dokic is from Australia, which means she has a lovely accent.
Golovin's greatest achievement was winning a mixed doubles title at the French Open. Unfortunately, she had to retire from competition due to back issues.
You could probably give me 100 tries to pronounce her last name and I would get it wrong every time.
She posed in Hugh Hefner's magazine. Annnnnnnnnnnnnnnd go....
Alize is my favorite player on this list because her last name is only three letters.
When I was young lad, I never thought Martina Hingis was very attractive. I now realize I was completely wrong. Hingis won five grand slam singles in her career.
Bondarenko's full name is Alona Volodymyrivna Bondarenko Dyachok. Her and Dikembe Mutombo Mpolondo Mukamba Jean-Jacques Wamutombo should party.
Outside of being the only Brazilian tennis player to compete in two Olympics, Menga posed in Brazili's version of Playboy in 2001.
Hantuchova's biggest claim to fame is winning the mixed doubles title in each of the four grand slam events.
Women like Dominika Cibulková is why I enjoy doing these lists. I never heard of her before, and now I can't forget about her.
I realized that I completely omitted Ana Ivanovic when I originally made my list. I don't know how I could be so stupid.
Zvonareva once said she feels comfortable in her body. Hmm, I wonder why.
Wozniacki is one of the few winners on the list, something her boyfriend, Rory McIlroy, is well aware of, too.
Kirilenko won the Bronze medal at the 2012 London Olympics, but she can earn the gold medal to my heart.
"Sorry, I was too busy winning!" - Shooter McGavin and probably Maria Sharapova.
