Tennis' Bond Girls
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 30 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 30 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.
