    Ana Ivanovic is something special, I think Sharapova is overrated while Nicole Vaidisova is underrated. I agree with Daniela Hantuchova as #1. Very nice

    I like Sharapova. I don’t follow these girls much. Elena Dementieva looked too muscular.

    Anna Kournikova is still my #1 even if she isn’t playing.

    Ah Kournikova is one of the all-time greats. I don’t follow tennis much either but I remember seeing many highlights of her on SportsCenter, especially when Kilborn was on.

    My vote goes to Kirilenko. No vodka necessary when spending a cold winter night in Russia with her. This list was a great midday break to all the typing and reading. My compliments to the author.

    It was a very difficult job going through the images to complete the King’s list.

    Hehe…Agreed Ivanovic is something special but…I think we’ve seen too much of her already. If I could, I would have moved up the French girl only because she’s a wild one (dating all sorts of footballers, provacative partier on the Riviera, etc) but on looks alone she had to stay a bit down.
    Kirilinko is something special as well.

    Great research by King, and I’m glad he was up to the task. I just changed the channel just to see if any women’s matches are currently on!

    I don’t know how much research he had to do. The King just knows.

    I have no problems recognizing talent when I see it.

    This is true, although I recall a discussion in college in which you would have taken Celine Dion over Toni Braxton.
