Hotties of the U.S. Open 2010

Today, the best tennis players from around the world converged on Queens, New York for the 2010 US Open. And if you’re a COED reader, you know how much we love us some sexy tennis players! So to get you in the mood for this year’s back-and-forth battle of the rackets, we’ve put together 40 galleries of all the hottest babes of the 2010 US Open. There are a ton of hotties you’ve probably never heard of, and a few omissions that usually make these kinds of lists (sorry Jelena Jankovic and the Williams sisters – you just didn’t make the cut). Enjoy! 

Caroline Wozniacki

WTA Ranking: 2
US Opens Played: 3
Age: 20
Home Country:Denmark

Caroline began her career as the number one seeded player–and even though she’s young, she’s still got skills. The 20-year-old Danish player beat former top-ranking player, Svetlana Kuznetsova (6-2, 6-2) at the 2007 International Women’s Open and won the Newcomer of the Year award in 2008. To date Wozniacki has won ten career titles and was the runner-up at the 2009 US Open.

Samantha Stosur

WTA Ranking: 6
US Opens Played: 7
Age: 26
Home Country:Australia

Stosur is a former world No. 1 on WTA Tour in doubles, together with Lisa Raymond from the United States. In 2007, she contracted Viral Meningitis, through being bitten by a tick–and had to put tennis on the back burner. Now she is back and looking strong. And also has a vivid fear of ticks. (We’re guessing…)

US Opens Played: 4
Age: 21

This 20-year-old hottie became the first Polish player in history to win a Sony Ericsson WTA Tour singles title after winning the Nordea Nordic Light Open in 2007, as well as the first Polish woman to win a Grand Slam singles quarterfinal during the open era and the first to pass the $1 million mark in career prize money.

Eighteen-year-old Azarenka won a junior world championship in 2005 and the U.S. Open mixed doubles title, with her partner Max Mirny, in 2007. Although she was born in Russia, Azarenka now loves in sunny Scottsdale, Arizona. You know – paradise…

Elena Dementieva

WTA Ranking: 13
US Opens Played: 11
Age: 28
Home Country:Russia

If you like to mix money and women, place your bets on this ravishing Russian winning the whole damn thing. She earned her first international title at age 13; went pro in ‘98, top 100 in ‘99. In 2008, Elena won the Barclays Dubai Tennis Championships (and $1.5 million), her first Tier II title since ‘06. Despite repeatedly making it to many final rounds in ’08 and ’09, we think she’s got another win up her sleeve, shorts–she’s got it hidden there, somewhere.

Maria Sharapova

WTA Ranking: 16
US Opens Played: 6
Age: 23
Home Country: Russia

If you don’t know who Sharapova is then you need to flip through Sports Illustrated’s 2006 Swim Suit issue, now. As one of the best tennis players in the world, this 23-year-old hottie has won three of four Grand Slam titles and banked over $12 million in prize money in her young career.

US Opens Played: 2
Age: 19
Home Country: Russia

One of the youngest player in the WTA, Anastasia made waves in the tennis world after beating super-hottie Caroline Wozniacki to win the 2006 junior Australian Open. That same year, she went on to win the US Open junior title, then returned to Australia to successfully defend her title against Tamira Paszek. So it seems we’ll be seeing a lot of this one for some time to come. Our only hope is that we never have to try to pronounce her last name in public.

Maria Kirilenko

WTA Ranking: 25
US Opens Played: 7

WTA Ranking: 31
US Opens Played: 5

Yaroslava Shvedova

World Rank: 32
US Opens Played: 3
Age: 21
Nationality: Kazakhstan

As if the Eastern Block didn’t have enough hot pro tennis players already, Yaroslava comes into the US Open with one WTA singles title, three ITF Women’s Circuit singles titles and five doubles tiles. But her shining moment came at the 2007 Sony Ericsson International competition, where she upset No. 2 seeded Sania Mirza in the quarterfinal, landing her a spot in the top 100 players of the world for the first time in her career.

diivider1.jpg

Tsvetana Pironkova

WTA Ranking: 34
US Opens Played: 4
Age: 22
Nationality: Bulgaria

We can honestly say we’ve never met a girl named Tsvetana or Svetlana we didn’t find attractive and Ms. Pironkova is no exception. Her father was a canoeing champion and her mother a swimming champion, so naturally she’s a tennis champion. Tsvetana is best known for defeating Venus Williams at this year’s Wimbledon quarterfinal.

Klara Zakopalova

WTA Ranking: 36
US Opens Played: 6
Age: 29

Her first WTA win came in 2005, at the Istanbul Cup, where she beat out Mashona Washington in the second round. At this year’s US Open, she’s looking to land her first WTA championship victory.

Julia Goerges

WTA Ranking: 40
US Opens Played: 3
Age: 21
Home Country: Germany

One of the youngsters at the US Open, Julia Goerges made waves after qualifying for the main draw at the 2007 US Open, but lost in the first round to No. 1-ranked Justine Nenin. Sure, that kinda sucks. But when your name sounds like “gorgeous”, then you’re already starting out better than most people.

Ana Ivanovic

WTA Ranking: 41
US Opens Played: 5
Age: 22
Home Country: Serbia

She may be younger than you, but Ana Ivanovic has been making moves in the tennis world since the age of five.

Let’s be honest, you’ve never evenmet a woman this good at anything, ever.

Competing in the WTA Junior circuit, this Argentine hottie won three of the four Grand Slam events in doubles, including the 2002 Australian Open, the 2001 Wimbledon Championships and the 2000 US Open. Last year has proved more tumultuous for Gisela, having defeated Maria Sharapova at Wimbledon in a major upset, but with no new title wins to her name. Maybe you should give her a hug.

Dominika Cibulkova

WTA Ranking: 45
US Opens Played: 2
Age: 21
Nationality: Slovakia

Before going pro in 2005, this smokin’ Slovakian stunner is a former World-ranked No. 3 at the junior level. However, Dominika has had limited success in her pro career, with no WTA and only one ITF title in the bag, though she did beat Jelena Jenkovik at the 2008 Rogers Cup in Montreal. And she lists “hard” as one of her favorite surfaces, which doesn’t make us want to make a penis joke at all…

Polona Hercog

WTA Ranking: 47
US Opens Played: 1
Age: 19
Nationality: Slovenia

Polona Hercog was born to florist Romana and bar owner Vojko.

Anastasija Sevastova

WTA Ranking: 57
US Opens Played: 1
Age: 20
Nationality: Latvia

At 20 years old, this Latvian stunner is making quite a name for herself in the tennis world having won an impressive seven ITF Titles and one WTA Title. We expect we’ll be seeing a whole lot more of Anastasija and we’re not complaining.

diivider1.jpg

Iveta Benesova

WTA Ranking: 66
US Opens Played: 8
Age: 27
Home Country: Czech

Iveta earned her first WTA title in 2004, and beat 5th seed Mary Pierce in the 2006 Australian Open–but lost to Martina Hingis in the next round. But you know what? With looks like that, she could think a tennis racket is for making waffles and we’d still be into her.

diivider1.jpg

Ana Chakvetadze

WTA Ranking: 72
US Opens Played: 6
Age: 23
Home Country: Russia

Anna began playing tennis at the age of eight after being introduced to the sport by her mother, Natalia. She travels for tournaments with her father.

Sybille Bammer

WTA Ranking: 79
US Opens Played: 5
Age: 30
Home Country: Austria

One of only two mothers on the WTA tour, Sybille Bammer (awesome name, BTW) took a break in 2001 to birth her daughter, Tina. Upon her return to the circuit in 2002, she won her first singles title at Grenoble, followed by wins at Mostar and Innsbruck. By 2005, she’d broke through rankings into the top 100 and made the top 50 in 2006. Today, she has yet to win a major.

Alize Cornet

WTA Ranking: 79
US Opens Played: 3

Home Country: France

With a ton of Juniors titles under her belt, having won the 2007 Girls Singels at Roland Garros. She also scored a payday of $50,000 after winning the 2007 ITF tournament in Dnepropetrovsk. But at 2007’s US Open, she lost to Jelena Jankovic in the third round. In 2008, she came back to reached the third round with a win over Camille Pin. We’re guessing she used her clever shirt technique to distract her.

diivider1.jpg

Sorana Cristea

WTA Ranking: 81
US Opens Played: 2
Age: 20
Home Country: Romania

A former ITF Junior Circuit top-ten player, Sorana Cristea has been moving up the ranks since many solid appearances in 2007. She scored her first WTA tour title win in 2008, defeating Sabine Lisicki in the Tashkent final. Sorana continued her success in 2009, upsetting #5 seeded Jelena Jankovic to advance to her first grand slam quarterfinal. In the end, she lost. But with a butt like that, we’re all winners, here.

diivider1.jpg

Bethanie Mattek-Sands

World Rank: 83
US Opens Played: 9
Age: 25
Home Country: United States

I’ll give you one guess what Bethanie Mattek-Sands is known for. Yep, it’s her boobs! (high five!) On top of having the tastiest ta-tas in tennis, Bethanie is also one of the sports craziest dressers. Oh yeah, and she’s won has won five ITF singles and ten doubles titles, and plays for the New York Sportimes for World Team Tennis. Did we mention her boobs?

diivider1.jpg

Simona Halep

WTA Ranking: 94
US Opens Played: 1
Age: 19
Nationality: Romanian

Halep started playing tennis at age four, in emulation of her older brother. She is well-known among tennis fans for her aggressive style of play, but we can think of two other things she is pretty well-known for. We are sad to say that in 2009 Simona said thanks for the mammaries and had her breasts reduced to a more manageable size.

diivider1.jpg

Sabine Lisicki

WTA Ranking: 96
US Opens Played: 2
Age: 20
Home Country: Germany

This young German hottie is making major moves in the tennis world, having moved from #497 to #198 in the WTA rankings in 2007 alone, ultimately reaching a career high rank of 22 in August of 2009. Last year, she won her first WTA title without dropping a set after beating 9th-ranked Caroline Wozniacki at the Family Circle Cup. So be sure to keep your eye on this hottie, for more reasons than one.

diivider1.jpg

Beatrice Capra

WTA Ranking: N/A
US Opens Played: 1
Age: 18
Nationality: USA

Beatrice makes her US Open debut as one of the youngest players in the tournament. At 18, this little American darling is just getting started. We have high hopes she’ll make the motherland proud.

diivider1.jpg

Michelle Larcher De Brito

WTA Ranking: N/A
US Opens Played: 1
Age: 17
Nationality: Portugal

Despite having mad skills on the tennis court, 17 year-old Michelle Larcher de Brito is known mostly for excessive grunting that resembles a porn star more so than a tennis star. In response to criticism from fellow players about this, she defended herself by saying, “I could (stop grunting), but, you know, it won’t feel natural, because it feels like something is missing in my game if I just stop.” Please Ms. Larcher de Britto, don’t change a thing.

diivider1.jpg

Mandy Minella

WTA Ranking: N/A
US Opens Played: 0
Age: 24
Nationality: Luxembourg

Mandy Minella is quickly becoming our new favorite tennis ball-busting babe and it’s not hard to figure out why. She’s had moderate success on the court, but for our money, this girl should be strutting on the runway.

diivider1.jpg

Christina McHale

WTA Ranking: N/A
US Opens Played: 1
Age: 18
Nationality: USA

Christina McHale is proof that not everything from New Jersey sucks. At 18, this right-handed hottie is moving up the ranks fast. She’s currently ranked 112 by the WTA and is perhaps the USA’s most promising prospect.

diivider1.jpg

Sania Mirza

WTA Ranking: N/A
US Opens Played: 4
Age: 23
Home Country: India

With all the players from the Eastern Bloc crowding the ranks of the tennis hottie world, it’s nice to see someone else making headway. Like 23-year-old Indian hottie, Sania Mirza. Her tennis career began in 2003, and by 2004, she’d already been honored with the Arjuna award, given by the Indian government for outstanding achievement in sports. But we’re talking about India here, so it’s probably too soon to place your bets on this one.

diivider1.jpg

Stefanie Vogele

WTA Ranking: N/A
US Opens Played: 2
Age: 20
Home Country: Switzerland

Despite the fact that her WTA career has had a slow start, this sexy Swiss has some serious potential to dominate the court. Stefanie began playing professionally in 2004 on the ITF circuit. And in 2007, she landed three ITF titles, in Hyderabad, Torun and Tel Aviv. In 2008, she added more trophies to her mantle, with doubles wins at La Palma and Hamburg.

diivider1.jpg

Pauline Parmentier

WTA Ranking: N/A
US Opens Played: 3
Age: 25
Nationality: France

This 25-year-old French stunner has four ITF singles titles and two ITF doubles titles under her belt, along with two WTA Tour tiles. And she won her first WTA Tour Title at the 2007 Tashkent Open in Uzbekistan, where I bet you had no idea they even had tennis.

diivider1.jpg

Edina Gallovits

WTA Ranking: N/A
US Opens Played: 3
Age: 25
Home Country: Romania

Twenty-four-year-old brunette beauty Edina Gallovits comes into the 2009 US Open having reached the WTA tour finals twice in her career. Her best Grand Slam performance came at the 2007 French Open and 2008 Australian Open, having made the second round in each tournament. OK, so that doesn’t sound very impressive. But you probably can’t even play ping-pong without breaking a sweat, so whatever…

diivider1.jpg

Urszula Radwanska

WTA Ranking: N/A
US Opens Played: 2
Age: 19
Nationality: Poland

As one half of the Radwanska sisters, Urszula doesn’t quite get the attention of her younger sister Agnieszka. She reached her career high ranking of World No. 62 on August 10, 2009. But to be honest, we’re less interested in her Tennis skills than we are of here predisposition to bathe topless with her sister and Caroline Wozniacki. Can you blame us?
