What if tennis is not only about competition, but also about honoring and celebrating remarkable women who captivate and inspire?

No wonder, women’s tennis is one of the most popular sports among millions of people worldwide.

When you see these talented and strong women with exceptional tennis skills and captivating beauty, it's like watching a sports event and flipping through fashion magazines.

As a health and fitness coach, I decided to compile a list of the top 12 hottest female tennis players of all time.

Read on and find out what qualities make these athletes shine both on and off the court.

12. Elina Svitolina

I remember watching Elina Svitolina for the first time during the Dubai Tennis Championships. Her agility and skill were mesmerizing.

Having followed her career closely since 2010, it's been a journey witnessing her rise to a world rank of No. 3 by 2017.

Every stroke and victory, especially at the Canadian Open, felt personal, as if we, her fans, were right there on the court with her.

Elina Svitolina maintains her physique and performance through a rigorous training routine. She focuses on agility, endurance, and strength with a combination of cardio, strength training, and on-court practice.

Her regimen includes sprint drills, weightlifting, agility exercises, and tennis-specific drills to optimize her athletic abilities. Elina is truly tennis royalty.
