Anyone who has followed the WTA tour knows that pro tennis features some of the most attractive female athletes in the world. They are often tall, lean, and could be easily mistaken for models in some instances. And this edition of “Who's more attractive” features two of the most beautiful young ladies to ever set foot on a tennis court, Eugenie “Genie” Bouchard and Elina Svitolina.
Genie Bouchard is a 23-year-old right-hander who originally hails from Montreal, Quebec, Canada. She stands at 5-foot-10 with long, flowing blonde hair. It was during her breakout season in 2014, that sports fans first discovered the Canadian beauty and have been memorized ever since. While she may only be ranked 82nd in the world as a singles player at the moment, she is defiantly number 1 in the hearts of her loyal fan base known as The Genie Army.
Kharkiv, Ukraine’s Elina Svitolina is one of the hottest stars in tennis in more way than one. The 5-foot-9 Ukrainian beauty is fresh off her best season ever in 2017. Off the court, the 23-year-old has established herself as one of the most beautiful women in professional sports.
Both ladies are roughly the same height, age, and even have the same hair color which makes determining who is the more attractive tennis star a very tough call.
16 Bouchard: Tan Lines
Genie Bouchard puts the double o’s in cool with her stylish sunglasses as she cruises along the river in Jupiter, Florida. The 5-foot-10 blonde looks nothing short of amazing in her white top and bikini bottoms as she stares off into the distance. According to the caption, Bouchard is, “working on the tan lines.” There is likely more than a few sports fans out there who would love to be on a boat with this stunning tennis starlet.
Fun Fact: One of Genie Bouchard’s best friends from childhood is British tennis star Laura Robson. The two met while they were being coached in Flordia by former tennis pro Nick Saviano. Robson, who is also 23 years of age, is probably best known for winning the silver medal in mixed doubles competition at the 2012 Summer Olympics.
15 Svitolina: Rock Solid
The Ukrainian stunner looks ready for a career as a swimsuit model in this fun, candid shot. The blonde tennis star stares at the floor as she leans against a stone-like structure in her one-piece bathing suits. Considering the structure in the background, one might even go so far as to say that this photo really rocks. Bad jokes aside, Elina Svitolina proves she is one of the hottest gals in tennis with this memorable photo.
Fun Fact: Both of Elina Svitolina’s parents competed in sports as well. Her father, Mikhaylo Svitolina was an amateur wrestler. Moreover, her mother, Olena Svilolina was accomplished draught (a game like checkers) player. She also has an older brother by the name of Yulian who played tennis (at an amateur level) as well.
14 Bouchard: The Strawberry
Bouchard looks marvelous in her all-white dress as she poses with a bowl of strawberries. Strawberries can be a bit messy at times and might not be the best thing to eat while wearing that color. Food hazards aside, Bouchard shows us her winning smile and set of teeth that any dentist would be proud of. Despite being a tennis player by trade, modeling appears to come naturally to the 23-year-old. One might even say that this is one her “berry” best photos.

On the plus side, at least there was a jacket nearby, to keep the photo somewhat PG.

The lovely tennis star looks as good as Anderson in her Baywatch days with this fun photograph. Interestingly enough, the original television show was already roughly five years into its run when Bouchard was born in 1994. If television producers ever decide to bring back the popular '90s television series, based on this pic, Bouchard should definitely try out for a role. After all, even if she isn’t the best actress, it likely wouldn’t be an issue, as Baywatch wasn't exactly known for producing award-winning performances.
Fun Fact: Bouchard’s favorite tennis player is none other than Swiss legend Roger Federer. She even got a chance to meet him at Wimbledon in 2012.

Cryo chambers are used for what is known as cryotherapy which relives things like muscle pain and soft tissue swelling. After competing at the highest level in professional tennis, cryotherapy might seem like a great option for an athlete like Elina Svitolina.
