If there’s one thing I love, it’s trashy reality TV. No shame. After a long day you’re just as likely to find me on the couch with a glass of wine watching Keeping Up with the Kardashians as you are to find me with a beer watching the game (OK a little shame). My latest guilty pleasure is WAGs on E! television network. If you’re not familiar with it, the reality show chronicles both the professional and personal lives of several WAGs. WAGs of course standing for “wives and girlfriends” of high-profile athletes.
But while I admittedly love this terrible, terrible, show what I love even more are the equally hot, independent, single ladies who just so happen to be the star athletes themselves. I’m talking about the beautiful tennis players, soccer stars, and MMA fighters whose pictures are set as your screensaver and whose posters hang on your bedroom walls (you know who you are). From Eugenie Bouchard to Danica Patrick to Venus and Serena Williams, women’s sports are on the rise, and female competitors are raising the bar both on and off the field.
So to show my appreciation I have painstakingly done my research and complied this list of 15 sexy (somehow) single female athletes who turn heads for reasons other than just their athletic abilities. Men will often fantasize about whether they could ever end up with a hot female athlete. Here are the ones where men's dreams everywhere are still possible. It was a tough job, but someone had to do it. So who are these beautiful bachelorettes?
These are the Top 15 Hottest Female Athletes Who Are Still Single.

16 Cynthia Schmidt
There had to be a player from the Legends Football League on this list. How can you leave off a hot woman who plays full contact football in a revealing uniform? Cynthia Schmidt plays for the Las Vegas Sin, Schmidt doubles up as a wide receiver and safety. Judging from Schmidt's Instagram and Twitter accounts, she appears to be on the market. That is, if you're up for a challenge guys, as you'll have to get over yourselves and your male ego if you're to go out with a female football player.
14 Blair O'Neal
Blair O’Neal, has been golfing since the age of 11, playing in tournaments all around the world. Runner up on Golf Channel’s reality show ‘Big Break: Prince Edward Island’ and champion on ‘Big Break: Dominican Republic’, Blair currently continues her quest of one day obtaining her full LPGA card. This blond from Illinois has racked up quite the modeling resume on the side and is proudly signed on with Cobra-Puma as her primary sponsor.
13 Christen Press
Not only is California soccer star Christen Press an absolute beauty, she is without a doubt one of the sport's biggest rising stars. Press currently plays for the Chicago Red Stars of the National Women's Soccer League and the United States women's national soccer team. When the 26-year-old isn’t setting records on the field she can be found on the cover of magazines such as Sports Illustrated, or posting pictures on Instagram for her 315K followers.
12 Lauren Sesselmann
Even if you’re not a soccer fan there is a good change that this name (or face) is familiar. Sesselmann, an American-born Canadian soccer defender, former forward and Olympic bronze medalist. She took the brunt of some fans’ rage during the Women’s World Cup this year when Canada lost to England. Off the field this beautiful blond runs ‘Success Through Soccer’ which encourages young female soccer players to “play like a girl” and provides an opportunity for players to meet their role models and develop their soccer skill set.
11 Meghan Hardin
Meghan Hardin is a professional golfer, model, and…real estate agent from Long Beach, California. Like O’Neal, Hardin has also been featured on the Golf Channel reality show ‘Big Break’. A Wilson Staff Calendar Girl, this busty blond has seen much success on and off the golf course. Can she play with the best female golfers in the world? So far, no. Did she look hot as hell as Wilson’s ‘100 Years Young’ calendar girl? See for yourself.
10 Anastasia Ashley
Surfing since she was just six years old, and coming in at no.11, we have beach babe and surf pro Anastasia Ashley. Raised in California and Hawaii, it’s no surprise that Ashley picked up surfing at a young age, her unquestionable talent led to picking up her first sponsorship at the ripe old age of 7. A multi championship surfer she has also found success modeling and on TV, and has appeared in both Maxim magazine and in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition.
9 Angela Rypien
Angela Rypien is the daughter of former Redskins quarterback Mark Rypien, and has been called the “hottest” Legends Football League (formerly the Lingerie Football League) athlete of all time. However, the six-foot tall quarterback isn’t just a pretty face, and unlike the majority of her fellow Lingerie League players, Rypien is able to support herself solely from serving as a model or spokesperson for firms such as Under Armour. Rypien was last rumored to be dating professional baseball player Taijuan Walker, but judging by her Instagram, this female footballer is fair game.
8 Leilani Mitchell
Leilani Mitchell is an American-Australian professional basketball player for the Phoenix Mercury of the WNBA. With an exotic background reportedly made up of Filipino, Malaysian, Singaporean, and Indian heritage this pint sized (by b-ball standards) 5-foot-5 basketball beauty is free to play the field, or should I say court, after splitting from Bulls point guard Derrick Rose.
7 Stephanie Rice
Three time Olympic Gold Medalist and world record-breaking swimmer, Stephanie Rice is renowned as one of Australia’s golden girls. Not only is she a living breathing mermaid, the now retired Rice is a successful entrepreneur and is actively involved in numerous charities. Beauty, brawn and brains. Rice is also quite active on social media coming under fire when she made a homophobic comment on Twitter and again on a separate occasions when she gave 'concerning' health advice in a Facebook post. She is also known to raise eyebrows with racy Instagram photos, but we don’t hear anyone complaining.
6 Nicole Hage
Retiring from golf in 2013, Nicole Hage can confidently say that at the age of 28 she has devoted 21 years of her life to being a professional golfer. Now I’ve never been great with math, but that alone is enough to impress me. While she’s a retired pro, golf is very much so still a part of Hage’s life judging by her Instagram. This is also where I discovered her equally gorgeous brother (come on fellas, a little something for the ladies). Most recently this beauty could be found serving as a commentator and analysis for PGA Tour Live.
5 Lolo Jones
Lori “Lolo” Jones is an American track and field and bobsled athlete. She is of Native American, African, French, and Norwegian descent. Having graced the cover of many magazines in everything from bikini’s to strategically placed ribbon, I can’t quite decide whether the records she has set as an athlete or her piercing eyes are more impressive. Not only is she single, in 2012 Jones revealed that as a devout Christian she maintains her virginity.
4 Maria Sharapova
Whether you’ve watched a single tennis match in your life or not, you know this name. A Russian professional tennis player, Sharapova is ranked first by the Women's Tennis Association. Off the court Sharapova has had an equally impressive modeling career including a feature in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. Having dated the likes of Adam Levine, Sharapova was ranked by Maxim as the hottest athlete in the world four years in a row, and has appeared on the Forbes Celebrity 100 year after years thanks in part to numerous lucrative sponsorships and endorsements.
3 Gina Carano
Even with her huge success as an actress, Gina Carano has stayed loyal to her roots in MMA and her fans. Known as “the face of women’s MMA”, Carano’s successful mixed martial arts career (and the fact that she’s an absolute 10) provided a platform for a successful transition from the ring to the big screen. But don’t be so quick to consider her retired. If Dana White and UFC has their way a super fight between Carano and Ronda Rousey has long been rumored to be in the works. No rivalry here though in fact Rousey has been quoted saying “I don't think I would be here” if not for Gina Carano, and Carano has often talked about her respect for Rousey, referring to her as a “beautiful athlete”.
2 Lindsey Vonn
Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn became a household name in even the warmest of climates when she dated Tiger Woods from 2013-2015. Not only is this all-American girl a record breaking, gold medal winning World Cup alpine ski racer on the US Ski Team, like many of the female athletes on this list Vonn finds herself listed as one of Maxim’s Hot 100. Due in part thanks to her talent and good looks, Vonn has enjoyed a significant amount of media attention and lucrative endorsement deals.
1 Allison Stokke
Allison Stokke is a pole-vaulter from California. No I’ve never watched pole vaulting nor could I tell you a single thing about it, however Stokke tops this list as my new Internet crush. A rising star in sports, there isn’t much dirt to dig up on the brunette California girl just yet, but according to bloggers, chat room trolls, (and pole vaulting fans?) Stokke is 110% single.
