20 Hottest Female Tennis Players

Matt Kryger-USA TODAY Sports

Tennis players are some of the most beautiful women on the planet. The game requires a mix of speed, agility and power that produces amazing athletes. The women who climb to the top of the world rankings are in the best shape possible. They look good on the court, and they look good off the court too.

One of the best things about tennis is the diversity. The top tour players hail from every corner of the globe, and you have players from all over the world competing against each other.

And when they compete, tennis becomes an emotional game. You can see the emotions of the players as they happen. Whether they're happy, disappointed or even angry, the game unfolds before us uncensored and intimate.

And it's that intimacy that endears these beautiful women to us. Because we can see them so clearly when they're competing, they've become some of the most recognizable female athletes on the planet.

Not just recognizable athletes, they've become some of the biggest celebrities in the world. We can't get enough of these lovely ladies. From television ads, to cameos in movies, they're everywhere today. And I don't see anyone complaining.

They grace our television screens on a regular basis. Advertisers have learned to use their unique blend of beauty and brawn to sell everything you can think of. From clothes to jewelry and even food, these hot women have transcended their game to become true crossover celebrities.

These are the top 20 hottest female tennis players in the world.
