If you told us that Billy Jean King was playing Martina Navratilova on television, we would find something more exciting to watch, like C-SPAN, for instance. But tell us there’s a Chris Evert-Anna Kournikova match on, then, we’re there.
A few things about our selections: 1) Our definition of “sports” has been expanded—a lot—for this article. 2) This is not an all-inclusive list; we will have other installments. 3) We have selected only one athlete per sport. 4) Sorry Kournikova and Summer Sanders fans; only present competitors were considered. So here are 10 of the hottest women athletes from a variety of sports.
JEANETTE LEE: POOL
We can think of worse ways to spend an hour than by watching this ESPN staple dressed in leather, chalk up her hands, grab that cue stick, bend over the pool table and work her magic.
DANICA PATRICK: AUTO RACING
We never considered a racing jump suit sexy attire until we saw Danica wear one. And she didn’t look half bad in that black leather thong that she sported in FHM Magazine, either.
NATALIE COUGHLIN: SWIMMING
If you’re selected to pose in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue which Natalie was in 2012, there’s a reason. This 30-year-old can also dance; she appeared on Dancing with the Stars.
