Tennis is a beautiful sports to watch. It becomes all the more beautiful when you watch the women at play. It must be said that there have been extremely attractive women players over the years. One must also concede that they have loads of talent as well. Who can forget the rivalry of Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert Lloyd. Now, Chris Evert was one of the most graceful players ever to have stepped on the tennis court. She had an admirable successor in the redoubtable Steffi Graf. When you talk of Steffi Graf (a good looker herself), the first name that comes to mind is Gabriela Sabatini, Steffi’s doubles partner. She has always been one of the most glamorous players ever.
The next generation saw people like Anna Kournikova make a mark on the tennis court as well as off it. Anna might be the most beautiful players ever in women’s tennis history. However, we shall concentrate on the players who are actually playing at this moment. The list could have been longer but we have decided to prune it to the top 10. So, let’s check the top 10 most beautiful female tennis players in the world in 2018.

10. Peng Shuai
At No. 10, we have the Chinese beauty, Peng Shuai, better known as S Peng in tennis circles. She is a doubles specialist having won two Doubles Gland Slam tournaments. She had been ranked No. 1 on the doubles circuit for some time during 2014. She has some notable wins over many top players such as Martina Hingis, Maria Sharapova, and others. Her specialty is her tremendous stamina and the fact that she can play the double-fisted backhand as well as forehand strokes.
09. Maria Kirilenko
At No. 9 we have a Russian beauty. These Russians have a history of producing exceptionally beautiful women tennis players with Anna Kournikova and Maria Sharapova leading the pack. Here, we have Maria Kirilenko, a doubles specialist again who has reached two Grand Slam Finals. This girl has won the Olympic bronze medal in the 2012 London Olympics. Having reached a career high ranking of No. 10 in 2013, she is slowing fading away. However, you cannot count her out because she is capable of springing a surprise or two.
08. Gabine Muguruza
Just as the Russian players are beautiful, so are the Spanish and the Latin American players. At No. 8 we have the Spanish Venezuelan beauty Gabine Muguruza. A extremely talented singles player, she was the No. 2 player for some time during 2016. Representing Spain in tennis tournaments all over the world, she has played some giant killing tennis by beating the greatest of them all, Serena Williams at the 2016 French Open Final. This has been her only Grand Slam singles title until date. However, she is a great talent. Her time will come soon in the near future.
07. Caroline Wozniacki
At No. 7, we have a player from the Scandinavian country, Denmark. Caroline Wozniacki is an extremely talented player having reached the top spot in women’s tennis in 2010. She is one of the few players in the world who attained this ranking without winning a single Grand Slam tournament. Even today, she hovers around in the Top 10 thus capable of springing an upset any time. She is extremely talented that is evident in the fact that she held on to her No. 1 ranking for 67 weeks. That is certainly a creditable achievement.
06. Serena Williams
The No. 6 player on this list is the greatest female tennis player ever to have set foot on the tennis court. Serena Williams, the younger of the two Williams sisters, is an exceptional player by any stretch of imagination. In spite of being dark hued, she is a tremendously beautiful player with an infectious smile. There is nothing more left to achieve for her in the tennis world. She has a total of 39 Grand Slam titles (23 singles and 16 doubles), making her one of the most decorated players in the history of the sport.
05. Sania Mirza
At No. 5, we have an Indian beauty, Sania Mirza. An extremely gifted player in her own right, she started off as a singles player. Considering her limitations as a singles player, she made the switch to playing doubles, first in the mixed doubles category with Mahesh Bhupathi and later in the women’s doubles category with a host of partners that included Martina Hingis. She has the distinction of being ranked No. 1 in the women’s doubles for a long time in 2015-16. An extremely striking personality, she has the capacity to disarm people with her smile.
04. Amandine Hesse
Not many people know about this player, Amandine Hesse. An upcoming French player, Amandine is an extremely beautiful girl by all means. She has the ability to make people sit up and watch. One can say with conviction that she is the only player after Anna Kournikova who is able to do that. She does not have a great tennis playing record to boast of. However, she is a regular at all the Grand Slams. You should look at the early rounds if you wish to admire her beauty. She has rarely proceeded beyond the second round of the major tournaments. For her striking looks alone, she is No. 4 on this list.
03. Maria Sharapova
If ever there is a Russian player after Anna Kournikova who has the ability to scorch the courts, it has to be the long-legged Maria Sharapova. An extremely beautiful player, she had loads of talent as well, quite unlike Anna Kournikova. An extremely tall women’s singles player, she has won all the four Grand Slam titles at least once in her career. If it had not been for Serena Williams, she might have had more tournament trophies in her kitty. One can say that she, along with Ana Ivanovic is the most watched player on the women’s tennis circuit.
02. Ana Ivanovic
At the No 2 position, we have arguably the most photogenic woman tennis player in the world, Ana Ivanovic. She is a good player as well having reached the pinnacle of the sport in 2008. Today, she is on the verge of retirement but can still give the younger beauties a run for their money as far as looks are concerned. People still switch off their viewing of the Grand Slam tournaments after her exit. She has won the French Open title once in 2008. Until date, she is the best women’s tennis player from Serbia.
01. Eugenie Bouchard
The No. 1 spot goes to the Canadian beauty, Eugenie Bouchard. A couple of years back, she was at the top of her singles game when she reached a career high ranking of No. 5. Today, she has slipped down a lot but you underestimate this player’s skill at your own risk. She has the game to match her beauty. A former Wimbledon Junior Champion, she has the record of being the first Canadian born player to reach the Wimbledon Finals in the senior section in 2014. Milos Raonic followed her after a couple of years.
You have just seen some exceptionally talented tennis players as well as some extremely beautiful women players as well. Of course, players like Gabriela Sabatini, Anna Kournikova, and Chris Evert would have made the all-time list had they been active today. Anyway, the future of women’s tennis is in beautiful hands with players like Maria Sharapova, Sania Mirza, and Eugenie Bouchard having a field day.
