Anna Kournikova, the tennis player who is much more famous for her beauty than her net play, is profiled.
The episode features archival footage and interviews with the 22-year-old, plus insights from tennis expert Bud Collins, sports agent Bob Williams and biographer Connie Berman, as it details how the Russian native gained international celebrity that eclipsed her tennis game. Despite never having won a professional singles title, Kournikova---the No. 1 doubles player in 1999---has volleyed her way to fame as a sex symbol and earned lucrative endorsements. Also addressed is her current spate of back problems, which could leave her career at match point. (VCR Plus+ 708475)
