Tennis is one of those sports events where fashion and glamour have a big impact. It is also known as one of the glamorous sports events in the world. Its history also talks in favor of it. Tennis was invented in the Victorian age and it was a popular source of pastime to young ladies. They were to walk smartly in the court to show their smartness which was important equally with performance. So, it is worthless to say that glamour and fashion both the two are inevitable in tennis. I tried to find some of the leading tennis players in terms of their beauty and fashion.

If you find anything should have been included in the article then put your opinion in the comment section.

Gabriela Sabatini

Gabriela Beatriz Sabatini is the great Argentine tennis player who was very popular to her fans for both of her performance and beauty. Her talent first came in to light after she won her first Grand Slam at the age of 20 in US Open in 1990 defeating the then dominant player of tennis world Steffi Graff. However, it has been a hot topic for the tennis analysts to find the reason of Sabatini’s not winning any other Grand Slam in her entire career later on. Besides her performance in tennis she was equally active in modeling with her attractive elegant appearance. It was she who could easily attract people. She has been model for many products of different companies and some of the products were introduced by her name. To give you an idea about her modeling activities I am quoting from a website:

Tennis star Gabriela Sabatini has launched Ocean Sun, a fragrance created by perfumer Christophe Raynaud with notes of mandarin, mango, pear, orchid, lily of the valley, violet, wood notes and white musk. (both above via cosmoty.de)”

Her own perfume named Grabriela Sabatini was marketed in 1989. Great American Doll Company launched a doll in the shape of a tennis playing Sabatini in 1994. She was elected as one of the 50 most beautiful people in 1992 by the People’s magazine. Sabatini is also famous for her humble and polite behavior with people. One of her greatest quotes is When I lose a match, I know that I lose on the court and not in life.” She is also a member of international tennis hall of fame.

    wow. Of all the dumb lists I've seen on this blog, this is the worst by far.

    1. Anonymous3:22 PM

      I agree 100%

    2. Anonymous9:08 AM

      i agree with you. we're discussing pretty faces not popularity.

  2. Anna Kournokova Kournikova, the former tennis player, is widely known for his glamour.

    Someone needs to check his eyes or check his grammar. I'd hate to think that the cute bottom that I've watched turned out to be that of a guy.

  3. Anonymous2:33 AM

    Justine Henin-Hardenne, Steffi Graf in top ten.. this list is a pure joke

    1. Anonymous2:16 AM

      why? they were of course two nice women in their prime without a question. when you engage in a physical sport, your femininity wears off graduaally. that is also part of beauty, if you could see it that way.

    2. Anonymous1:16 AM

      Graf has masculine facial features. It's the same with Henin, plus a 12 yr.old probably has bigger breasts than her.

    half of these people are ugly wat the hell steffi graff...okayyy

  6. Anonymous12:56 PM

    Steffi Graff looks perfectly fine with her hair down, like when they show her in the stands watching Andre play. So shut the hell up you idiots.

  7. Anonymous11:42 PM

    I think justin hardenne is the most beatiful tennis player, i would rate matina hingis as 2nd.

    1. Anonymous4:55 PM

      I always thought Justine was one of the homeliest---she looks like a boy

    2. Anonymous1:19 AM

      Yes, she is like a boy....very flat chest....no bounce when she's playing. Bounce is important in women's tennis, right?

  8. Anonymous1:08 PM

    This list is seriously flawed. I think former number one doubles player Gigi Fernandez is beautiful. Jennifer Capriati is pretty.

  9. Paimonia8:27 PM

    They're all ugly or average. Guys... Come to Serbia, you'll find beautiful girls on every corner. ;)
    Even Serbian tennis players are not to be taken as representative.

  10. Allwyn4:28 PM

    Anna ivanovic is the most beautiful tennis player in the world. Really Serbian girls are beautiful.

  11. Anonymous10:20 AM

    Hey hey hey... what about Ana Ivanovic, Jelena Jankovic, Maria Kirilenko, Daniela Hantuchova, Nicole Vaidisova?! Steffi Graf and Justine Henin in top 10... i don't think so...

  12. Anonymous1:52 PM

    I totally agree with you, where is Ana Ivanović (she's the best), Jelena Janković or Daniela Hantuhova, Dementieva, Maria Kirilenka or even Vaidisova, they're grate and nice ;)I saw teh clip on youtube - it's perfect :D

  13. Anonymous6:14 AM

    What the hell is this? Where is Ana Ivanovic? She is the best!

  14. come on!!Graff?? and that picture!!! THAT PICTURE!!! i can almost see an adam's apple!! this is not worth being on the web...

  15. Anonymous5:22 PM

    What the hell is wrong with you? ANA IVANOVIC is unsurpassed when beauty is concerned. What is more, she was chosen as the most beautiful female sportist in 2007, and deservedly so.

  16. Anonymous5:30 PM

    By the way, you should consider revising this antediluvian and, needless to say, utterly asinine list. ANA IVANOVIC is the most prepossessing of them all.

  17. Anonymous7:37 PM

    Man!. That list suck. Here is the good list!.

    1. Anna Kournikova (RUS)
    2. Maria Sharapova (RUS)
    3. Jelena Jankovic (SRB)
    4. Ana Ivanovic (SRB)
    5. Nicole Vaidisova (CZE)
    6. Sania Mirza (IND)
    7. Maria Kirilenko (RUS)
    8. Gisela Dulko (ARG)
    9. Elena Dementieva (RUS)
    10. Tatiana Golovin (FRA)

    You should re-do your list because Graff, Hingis and Henin are not even in my top 20!!

    1. Anonymous5:00 AM

      Good list !! Chris Evert also was hot in her day.

    2. If they're going to throw in Graff, might as well complete the flawed list and add Billie Jean King!
      You're is much better, I agree!

  22. Anonymous11:19 PM

    Haha Steffi Graff? Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Though, this beholder is obviously blind. Maybe he is not talking about physical beauty?
    I wouldn't be too worried though. If no one found ugly chicks attractive, many women would be lonely right now.

  23. Anonymous12:42 PM

    OMG! Steffi Graf RU kidding!!?????????? What the hell were u thinking with Hennin? RU guys blind?! ANA IVANAVIC is definatley the best.

    This is very bad list in my opinion. At http://hotfemaletennisplayers.blogspot.com you can clearly see (poll) that Ana Ivanovic is the most beautiful female tennis player, followed by Maria Sharapova, and in all time list there ar also the names of Gabriela Sabatini and Ana Ivanovic.

  31. steffy graf!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!! if you are blind it's okay
    and where is ana ivanović?!?

  32. Anonymous9:13 AM

    where is ana ivanovic?she is supposed to be beautiful of all time

  33. Anna Kournakova hasn't done shit. She's known for fucking Enrique. Period. The most beautiful woman of tennis is SERENA WILLIAMS. She wins events and she is a woman of Vogue. So please, fix your list.

  34. Gabriela Sabatini was the hottest female player ever. She should be on the top 5 in anyone's list no matter your tastes - but chances are, she retired before many of you were around or paying attention. Sabatini certainly is number 1 if you count talent on the court, and beauty. Anna Kournikova has to be #2 on most lists after her. Her talent never matched her natural beauty, but she made more modeling than no the court, so who cares !

  35. Anonymous12:19 AM

    Some of them were (and are) good tennis player but not beautiful.
    For me is Ana Ivanovic one of the most beautiful tennis players, today.

    Ana Ivanovic must be between three first most beautiful.
    Since when is Steffi Graf beautiful? She was good tennis player and that was all.

    Biplob Kishore Deb, whoever you are, you are definitely the most pathetic blogger and without a doubt, a homosexual...you have no understanding or appreciation of feminine beauty. To make the matter worse, you are a Bengali Indian too, which makes other Bengali Indians like me look like monkeys in front of my friends (who are mostly non-Indians because I live in Europe, incidentally)...why don't you learn the language first before you make an attempt to write your worthless blogs..."They were to walk smartly in the court to show their smartness which was important equally with performance."-what the fuck were you thinking? And please go ahead and update your extremely limited Tennis knowledge, and check out these beautiful women of professional Tennis, (list in no particular order)....

    The saving grace of your list is obviously the inclusion of Sabatini, Sharapova, Kournikova, Mirza and to some extent maybe Hingis.
