THE 10 MOST BEAUTIFUL TENNIS PLAYERS

Date:

“Listen, you’re never going to be a looker. You’re never going to be somebody like a Sharapova, you’re never going to be somebody with long legs, so you have to compensate for that.”

So, in an attempt to deter those who will re-open the Bartolli case, we’ve chosen our pick of the best-looking female tennis players to have graced the court over the years.
