With original tennis babe Anna Kournikova set to marry pop singer Enrique Iglesias, we take a look at some of her glam moments
Before Maria, there was Anna.
Often credited as the first “tennis babe” to gain worldwide fame, blonde bombshell Anna Kournikova was one of the first Russian tennis stars to leave her mark in the late 1990s. Her success was soon followed by a wave of female players from the former Soviet territories, including a young Maria Sharapova.
Anna never won a singles title, but she did come in first as FHM’s Sexiest Woman in the World and ESPN’s Hottest Female Athlete. Even after she retired from professional tennis due to a back injury, she continued to be the most popular athlete on internet search engines.
With Anna set to marry her boyfriend of 12 years, Spanish singing sensation Enrique Iglesias, we take a look at this iconic athlete’s glam moments on and off the court.
