When it comes to beautiful women in sports, one would be hard-pressed to find an organization that features more of them than the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA).
These amazing athletes are almost always in outstanding physical condition. Moreover, the ladies of the WTA are often as tall as your average runway model – between 5-foot-8 and 5-foot-11. In fact, many of the ladies featured in this very article, have indeed modeled for publications like the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. Besides being incredibly athletic and attractive, most of the WTA’s top stars are also millionaires a few times over.
In a nutshell, these ladies are talented, gorgeous, and wealthy. Given how much they bring to the table, it’s no surprise that female tennis players have been romantically linked to several high profile celebrities over the years.
However, what is surprising is how many these ladies are still on the market. The number of single WTA standouts is astounding. What’s even more shocking is that some of biggest names in the games are currently single.
The list we are about to see features some of the most successful (and beautiful) women in the game – several of these sportswomen are spoken for, and others are still available, at least for now.
