Top 15 Hottest Newcomers in Tennis

Tennis is an incredibly competitive sport and players can feel an immense amount of pressure because of the individuality of it. On a team sport, any given player can certainly have an off day and miss a few shots. However, they have other teammates to pick up the slack – it’s a group effort, and if they lose, it’s not entirely on a single player’s shoulders. Tennis is a little bit different. If a player has an off day, they lose – plain and simple. It could be as small as a qualifying match or as significant as a Wimbledon Final. Tennis players have no back up when they’re on the court – they have to rely on themselves.

As with all individual sports, it’s also a bit easier for newcomers to stand out. After all, you don’t need to look at the roster to find out who a certain new player that isn’t as familiar is. You merely look at who’s playing in any given match – two athletes get equal billing, whether they’re a newcomer or an established pro. While winning titles requires you prove your prowess with a racket against some of the sport’s greatest, winning the public’s attention is a bit easier in tennis.

Tennis is also a sport that features a lot of attractive athletes. They look a bit better than most athletes on the court, solely because they have a bit more freedom to pick their outfits. Yes, they often have to wear gear that is by whatever brand sponsors them, but they don’t need to don the same uniform day after day. However, even when they’re off duty, tennis stars are often the most beautiful and stylish. Just look at superstar Maria Sharapova – she rose to the top based on her tennis skills, but could easily have become a supermodel instead.

While many hot newcomers initially get noticed by the public because they look great on camera, they definitely won’t make it big in the tennis world if they don’t have the skills.

Here are 15 of the hottest newcomers in tennis.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, chances are you know who French-Canadian tennis superstar Eugenie Bouchard is. The bubbly blonde has become the tennis world’s sweetheart, and currently holds a WTA singles ranking of 7th in the world. She also has one WTA Singles title, 6 ITF women’s circuit singles title, and over four million in tournament prize money. She’s played in countless major tournaments and the tennis world seems to view her rise to the top as inevitable. Within five years, Bouchard will likely have won most of the major titles and be at the top of her game.
