Ana Ivanovic voted sexiest tennis player for 5th consecutive time
Posted by kumargaurav on Jun 22nd, 2010
Though former no 1 Ana Ivanovic may be falling rapidly on the women’s ranking there is sphere over which her domination remains undisputed. Recently, the 22 year old Serbian was voted as the sexiest tennis player of the world by tennisreporters dot net for the Fifth year running.
Ana, who won the French open in 2008 when she was ranked no 1, crashed out of Wimbledon 2010 in the first round. And with her WTA rankings at a low 45, it appears that the Serb is losing her clothes more rapidly than her rankings.
But, the Serbian star, is making most of her time off the tennis court, and celebrated the verdict by posing in a pink bikini on a bed of matching tennis balls and also with a tennis net draped loosely around her. The two pictures of her can be seen below.
When asked about her accomplishment, Ivanovic revealed that whereas in men’s tennis most of them are friendly, in women’s tennis its all about “Who’s the prettiest, who’s the most popular, the most fashionable, who’s getting the most coverage. We are simply not friends”
Ana Ivanovic is not the only one to pose for racy photo shoots to boost her career. Even, the current World No.1 and defending Wimbledon champion Serena Williams showed off her curves in a high-heeled, chunky jewelry and little else, in a photo taken for the U.S. Vibe Magazine.
Suddenly, it appears the battle for the numero uno position outside the court is hotting up and surely gaining more attention that the on court show.
For now, glamorous girls like Maria Sharapova, Maria Kirilenko are lagging behind but it will not be much time before they catch up.
For tennis fans its total fun and an entirely new dimension to enjoy women’s tennis.
I really hope that Ana is not going the way of Kournikova because she really is a talented tennis player. When you have exotic beauty it is very marketable and it appears that Ana has been in demand a lot latetly and her tennis is sufferening because of it. She has the perfect combination that drives sponsors crazy, beauty & the girl next door personality and though she is making millions in off court opportunites, thankfully she does sound as if she still wants to improve tennis wise.
What do you think about what she says happens in the locker room?
