Ashley Harkleroad Is No Stranger To Taking Nude Photos
Some people are shedding clothes during the quarantine. Who needs them anyway? Certainly not former tennis player Ashley Harkleroad. She posted a nude snap of her backside on Instagram and the internet absolutely cannot handle it.
There's been no shortage of sex appeal on the WTA Tour over the years, but who are the hottest female tennis players actively playing right now? Take a look at my top list below, which features not only some of the finest players in the game today but also the best. One of the big reasons female tennis players are hot is that tennis is hugely popular in Eastern Europe where, on average, women tend to be of a higher standard than Western Women. My own theory is that these places are yet to be conquered by modern-day feminism so rather than loudmouthed swamp donkeys that don't shave their armpits, you tend to get girls who realise there's huge value in looking beautiful both in terms of attracting men and their careers. As a result, even the bang average ones still look pretty good as they put the effort in! The nature of tennis training also means the girls are all going to be in great shape as you need a mix of cardio and strength training to achieve success on the tour.
