Here are the 3 hottest players in tennis in my book…

Daniella Hantuchova
Daniella Hantuchova

Daniella Hantuchova – She’s 25 years old and from Slovakia. Currently no. 19 in the WTA (World Tennis Association). Look at that body! At 5’11", she’s a lean, mean, fighting machine. She wears the least outfit in tennis, I think. She was in the top 10, 2 years ago but began falling in rankings. People are taking notice of Sharapova because she’s winning, but Hantuchova is far hotter than Sharapova. Currently ranked 21 on WTA.

 

Maria Sharapova

Maria Sharapova – One of the youngest to be no. 1 in the WTA rankings, this 21 year old hails from Russia. She’s 6’2"! Those legs are really long! She has got to be the noisiest player to ever play tennis but she can be  as noisy as she wants as long she keeps on winning. Currently ranked 6th.

Maria Kirilenko

Maria Kirilenko – This 21 year old needs to start winning for her to get noticed and get those big advertisers. Currently ranked at 33.

What!!! This makes me less excited about the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour Championships in Doha. Where have all the beautiful girls of Tennis gone? No Daniella Hantuchova! No Maria Kirilenko and now, no Maria Sharapova! Yes, I know that the other two, Hantuchova and Kirilenko are not on the same playing level as Sharapova nor are they on the top 8 so there is really no way for them to be here for the Sony Championships.

Now I’m not sure if I’d be buying tickets for this event. I’ve seen all the top 8 WTA Girls play but having "idol" there to play makes watching tennis different. Anyway, here are the current standings and with Sharapova out, they might bring in Radwanska to play. If you notice, there are 2 Serbs, 2 Americans and double the Russians.

1. JANKOVIC, JELENA  SRB
2. WILLIAMS, SERENA  USA
3. SAFINA, DINARA  RUS
4. DEMENTIEVA, ELENA  RUS
5. IVANOVIC, ANA  SRB
6. SHARAPOVA, MARIA  RUS
7. KUZNETSOVA, SVETLANA  RUS
8. WILLIAMS, VENUS  USA
9. RADWANSKA, AGNIESZKA   POL
