    Play begins tomorrow at the All England Club where 256 players will begin their quest to win the title at Wimbledon.

    Picking a winner on the men's side is not extremely difficult with guys like Federer, Nadal, and Djokovic all capable of winning.

    Picking a winner on the women's side is another story. It's like trying to pick a needle out of haystack.

    Picking the hottest seeded women, well that's a little easier.

12. Jelena Jankovic

1 of 12

    Jelena Jankovic has really been struggling the last few years.

    She has gone from being the number one player in the world to now being seeded 15th at Wimbledon.

    At least she helped put Serbia on the map....for tennis of course.

11. Serena Williams

2 of 12

    Serena Williams trumps everyone else on this list when it comes to accomplishments.

    13 major titles, including four at Wimbledon will do that. She has been out for a year now with injuries, but comes in seeded seventh and one of this year's favorites.

    She has always played well on the court, but gets noticed off the court as well...whether it be for her outfits or her curves in a bathing suit.

10. Vera Zvonareva

3 of 12

    Vera Zvonaareva has been one of the steadiest players on tour for a the past few years.

    She made two major finals last year and has been ranked second or third for a year now. She is a favorite, headed to Wimbledon as the second overall seed.

    She also cleans up rather well off the court.

9. Dominika Cibulkova

4 of 12

    Dominika Cibulkova has been a solid player on tour for years now.

    She always seems to be inside the top 30 and plays well on the grass. She will be seeded 24th at this year's Wimbledon Championships.

    She also has some talents off the court—her modeling pics are quite nice.

8. Bethanie Mattek-Sands

5 of 12

    Bethanie Mattek-Sands has been the driving force of American women's tennis over the past year.

    With the Williams sisters out because of injuries, Mattek-Sands has soared up the rankings. She will be seeded 30th at Wimbledon.

    If it wasn't for her funky outfits on court, we might talk about her good looks more.

7. Victoria Azarenka

6 of 12

    Victoria Azarenka has been a steady player in the top 10 for the past few years.

    A Major title would do wonders for her. She is playing pretty well, and goes to Wimbledon seeded fourth overall.

    Her looks also draw attention, as this picture suggests.

6. Daniela Hantuchova

7 of 12

    Daniela Hantuchova has been on tour for what seems like ages now, and has been a solid player.

    She has seen a drop in the rankings a bit over the last few years, but hasn't fallen outside the top 30.  She will be seeded 25th at Wimbledon this year.

    Hantuchova was first noticed for her looks, and despite being around for a while, she still looks as good as ever.

5. Julia Goerges

8 of 12

    Julia Goerges is the new rising hottie on the WTA tour.

    Goerges started to get noticed when she went on a tear during the clay court swing this season. She jumped into the top 20, and is seeded 16th at Wimbledon.

    Her play wasn't the only thing that started to get her noticed...she's pretty darn cute as well.

4. Caroline Wozniacki

9 of 12

    Caroline Wozniacki, please win a major!

    Wozniacki has been number one in the world (except for a few weeks) since late last year. She comes into Wimbledon this year as the top seed with a lot of pressure on her to win.

    If she can win a major...it would make her that much hotter!

3. Maria Sharapova

10 of 12

    Maria Sharapova is the second most accomplished hottie on the list.

    She has won three majors and been ranked number one before. Her play as of late suggests a good chance for the number five seed at Wimbledon this year.

    She is rather good at posing in bathing suits as well....although it's her tennis that we only care about.

2. Anna Ivanovic

11 of 12

    Anna Ivanovic is trying to find the form that led her to win a major and be the number one player.

    Thought to be the next great player after winning a major, Ivanovic has seen her ranking fall way down—but she's worked her way back to be seeded 19th at Wimbledon.

    One thing that has never left Ivanovic...her stunning good looks!

1. Maria Kirilenko

12 of 12

    Maria Kirilenko tops another tennis hottie list.

    It's not just her looks, she's pretty good at tennis too. Seeded 26th at Wimbledon this week, she has been as high as number 18 in the world.

    Despite being good, she is most known for her 2009 SI Swimsuit pics...which is fine with us!
