5 TENNIS BEAUTIES who can give any top model run for her money
Here we present female tennis stars that rock the tennis court with not just their outstanding sporting skills but also with their mouthwatering charm.
In 2006, Maxim ranked Sharapova the hottest athlete in the world for the fourth consecutive year. She posed in a six-page bikini photoshoot spread in the 2006 Valentine’s Day issue of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, alongside 25 supermodels. In a poll run by Britain’s FHM magazine, she was voted the seventh most eligible bachelorette, based on both “wealth and looks.
During her debut at the 1996 US Open at the age of 15, the western world noticed her beauty, and soon pictures of her appeared in numerous magazines worldwide. Photographs of her scantily clad form have appeared in various men’s magazines, including one in the much-publicized 2004 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, where she posed in bikinis and swimsuits, and in other men’s publications such as FHM and Maxim.
Thanks to her irresistibly appealing look, Ivanovic has appeared on a number of international magazines like FHM (Germany, United Kingdom, Australia), Vanity Fair (Spain), Cosmopolitan (Serbia), Vanidades (Mexico), Grazia (Serbia), The Best Shop (Serbia) and Sports Illustrated (South Africa).
Apart from her powerful strokes on the tennis court, Serena Williams is known for her unusual and colorful outfits on court. In 2015, she became the first black female athlete to have a picture by herself on the cover of Vogue, which she did for the April 2015 issue.
Months after breaking up with Rory McIlroy, the 24-year-old tennis professional is the latest beauty to hit the pages of Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit edition 2015. McIlroy, 25, who’s probably kicking himself right now, broke up with Wozniacki in May 2014, just days after the couple sent out wedding invitations.
