Tennis players in the SI Swimsuit issue

Author:

it's the most exciting weekend of the year for tennis fans as the U.S. Open concludes with the women's championship on Saturday and the men's final on Sunday. SwimDaily figured we'd get into the U.S. Open spirit by looking back at the 10 tennis players who have appeared in the swimsuit issue -- Steffi Graf (1997), Anna Kournikova (2004), Serena Williams (2004), Venus Williams (2005), Maria Sharapova (2006), Maria Kirilenko (2009), Daniela Hantuchova (2009), Tatiana Golovin (2009), Ana Ivanovic (2010) and Rafael Nadal (2012). While Nadal is the only one still in contention (he'll face off against Richard Gasquet on Saturday), we still feel the other swimsuit alum deserve love. Here's a photo gallery of tennis players who have appeared in the SI Swimsuit issue.
