Anna Kournikova smokes.
I'm sure I heard about Martina Hingis smoking from time to time...

Hingis was photographed with cigars, as I recall...

Suzanne Lenglen was a chain smoker, if I recall correctly.

Let's remember, guys, that the WTA was born out of the Virginia Slims tour. Virginia Slims were cigarettes. Incidentally, Billie Jean King is on the board of trustees there.

Suzanne

Amélie used to smoke a cigarette "now and then" - as she said - before changing lifestyle and starting to get better results.
