This year's tournament is now under way with the game's biggest names locking horns in south west London. Now Daily Star Online looks back on some of the game's sexiest athletes, past and present, who stripped completely naked for the camera. In one image a nude Venus, five-time singles champion at Wimbledon, turns away from the camera to expose her bare buttocks. Caroline Wozniacki, a former World No 1 competing at this year's event, is seen in one shot completely naked holding a tennis racket. And in another racy shot, former world No 2 Vera Zvonareva leans back in a chair with just her arm to cover her nipples. But in perhaps the raunchiest shoot, Slovak stunner Daniela Hantuchova bends down naked in one image and stands starkers in another. Czech star Petra Kvitova also ditched her clothes for a shoot for DNES magazine as part of charity work she was undertaking. It was previously reported how a wave of babes had attempted to recreate the iconic Athena Tennis Girl poster — which featured Fiona Walker lifting up her skirt. On the court this year's Wimbledon looks set to be the sexiest yet, with Brit tennis babe Katie Boulter hoping to become the "Jamie Vardy of tennis". By Daily Star.
There's been no shortage of sex appeal on the WTA Tour over the years, but who are the hottest female tennis players actively playing right now? Take a look at my top list below, which features not only some of the finest players in the game today but also the best. One of the big reasons female tennis players are hot is that tennis is hugely popular in Eastern Europe where, on average, women tend to be of a higher standard than Western Women. My own theory is that these places are yet to be conquered by modern-day feminism so rather than loudmouthed swamp donkeys that don't shave their armpits, you tend to get girls who realise there's huge value in looking beautiful both in terms of attracting men and their careers. As a result, even the bang average ones still look pretty good as they put the effort in! The nature of tennis training also means the girls are all going to be in great shape as you need a mix of cardio and strength training to achieve success on the tour. All these women make a good chunk of their living by looking good in photo shoots and brand endorsements.
