Martina Hingis: With Her Marriage, Who's the Hottest Tennis Star Left?
Martina Hingis is officially off the market.
The former No. 1 player on the WTA Tour married French horseman Thibault Hutin, and the wedding was quite the shocker because the couple had dated for less than a year.
“Our wedding came as a surprise for many, but it has been in planning long in advance,” Hingis told Schweizer Illustrierte, a Swiss magazine.
Well, there's now one less piece of eye candy in the world of women's tennis.
So who are the hottest single tennis stars now that Hingis is no longer available?
Let's take a look at the top 10.
10. Dominika Cibulkova
Dominika Cibulkova has made me seriously consider relocating to Slovakia.
She's only 21, and I'm just 22. I think I have a chance if we're in the same general area as each other.
After all, she dated Gael Monfils in the past.
No disrespect to that guy, but he isn't exactly winning any awards for most eligible bachelor of the year or anything.
9. Anastasia Myskina
We haven't seen Anastasia Myskina on a tennis court since 2007, but she hasn't officially retired.
Even though I like my women to be decisive, I'm OK with that.
It probably has something to do with the fact that she gave birth to a child back in 2008—she hasn't said who the father is, by the way—so she has taken her time to come back.
But no matter what happens with Myskina, she'll still be one of the sport's ultimate cougars.
8. Vojislava Lukic
There's a reason you've probably never heard of Vojislava Lukic: She's not very good at tennis.
Her highest career ranking is No. 203, her career earnings totaled $47,000, she quit playing competitive tennis at age 21 and she officially retired from the sport at 22.
On the bright side, though, Lukic is fluent in five languages.
Oh yeah, she's pretty smoking hot, too.
7. Elena Dementieva
Elena Dementieva is now retired, but she was a heck of a tennis player back in the day.
She won a gold medal at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, and she was ranked as high as No. 3 in the world in 2009.
She never won a major tournament, but who am I kidding? I could care less.
As long as Dementieva decides to throw on a dress and go swim in the ocean like that, I'll be a fan of hers.
6. Jelena Jankovic
Jelena Jankovic is the current No. 8 player on the WTA Tour and the former top player in all of women's tennis.
She's collected nearly $12 million in career earnings, and she's only 25 years old.
I thought I'd give you a little background on Jankovic, but I'm betting that most people aren't even reading what I've typed right here.
I'm not gonna lie, though—I don't even remember what I wrote either.
Jankovic has me in a trance, making me a big fan of boats in the process.
5. Agnes Szavay
Agnes Svazay turns 22 years old on Dec. 29, but don't get too excited, fellas.
That doesn't mean she's going to be donning her birthday suit for us.
In fact, she should probably be working on her game.
Yeah, she's the best player out of Hungary, but she's fallen off considerably since achieving her highest career ranking (No. 13 overall) in 2008.
4. Michelle Larcher De Brito
Michelle Larcher de Brito is only 17 years old, so there was much debate about whether I should even put her on this list.
But she turns 18 next month, thus her placement here.
She hasn't been around long enough to critique her accomplishments, but at such a young age she seems to have a bright future ahead.
3. Daniela Hantuchova
Daniela Hantuchova has six career singles titles and was once ranked as high as No. 5 in the world.
She also once graced the pages of Sports Illustrated, and that picture above is one of the lovely results from her photo shoot.
I'd like to thank whoever invented the camera.
You're truly a hero of mine.
2. Olga Poutchkova
Guess what Olga Poutchkova does when she's not playing tennis.
Yeah, she models.
Based on her track record, it seems like she's pretty good at both professions.
Don't believe me? Check out her website.
1. Ana Ivanovic
Ana Ivanovic is easily one of the hottest athletes on the planet.
Just look at that picture and find a flaw.
Didn't think so.
That's not bad for a former No. 1 player.
