Tennis is one of the most popular sports in the world and it is also one of the only competitions that allows women to get as much exposure as men, with their matches televised alongside those of the best male players. This has allowed many of the most successful female players to become worldwide stars and reach huge audiences, while those with exceptional looks are also able to take advantage of their fame to model, advertise and launch their own range of products. In fact, many of the greatest women currently on tour are incredibly sexy and are a match to any other type of female athlete.
Russia isn’t short of gorgeous tennis players and Maria Kirilenko is just one of many successful athletes from the country that competes in the sport. The 28-year-old has reached a career high ranking of 10 in the world and has reached the quarter finals of every major but the US Open. She has appeared in a number of magazines courtesy of her success and good looks, including the likes of Sports Illustrated and Vogue.
Although she is only 22 years old, Amandine Hesse has established her on the WTA tour after winning three titles on the ITF tour. The French player is expected to improve massively over the next few years and exceed her current ranking of 157 in the world in singles and 122 for the doubles format.
