A game of tennis never looked so good!
With the countdown to Wimbledon underway, we thought it was only fair to round up the ten hottest tennis players ever for you to feast your eyes on.
We’ve included some familiar faces, including hotties from the 80s (Bjorn Borg is the ultimate throwback), as well as some of the freshest, and frankly, fittest talent on the courts today. No one can work those tight shorts quite like these guys, and even if ball games aren’t your thing, you can’t deny that a quick scroll through these on court pics is bound to renew your interest!
From Australia to Croatia, Sweden to Spain, we’ve scoured all corners of the globe for these world class talents!
Whether you still think Andre Agassi beats out the competition from his glory days (pre clean shaven – he really rocked that mullet) or you love Pete Sampras at his peak in the mid noughties – which of these tennis champs gets your vote? Let us know on our Facebook page!
Agassi is a 1996 Olympic gold medalist and winner of eight Grand Slams. His natural charisma on the court is credited as helping to revive the popularity of tennis in the 1990’s. He was also noted for his outlandish fashion sense, sporting tight lycra shorts and the occasional dangly earring during games. He is happily married to former tennis ace Steffi Graff and the couple live in Las Vegas Valley with their two children.
At the peak of his career, Borg was ranked world number 1 and won three Grand Slams without losing a set. In 1979, he was the first player to win more than a million dollars in prize money in a single season, but sadly the pressures that came with his meteoric rise to fame led to him taking early retirement at the age of 26.
Nicknamed “Pistol Pete” for his precise serve, Sampras had a notable rivalry with fellow top ten hottie Andre Agassi during his career. He retired with 14 Grand Slam titles, a remarkable feat that has only since been beaten by Roger Federer. He’s now happily married to one-time Miss Teen USA winner Bridgette Wilson.
Federer is arguably one of the greatest tennis players of all time, holding a whopping – and unbeaten world record – of 17 Grand Slam titles. He’s also a philanthropist, and established the Roger Federer Foundation, which provides grants to developing countries for education and sports related projects. The tennis hunk is happily married to fellow tennis player Mirka Vavrinec, and the couple have two sets of twins!
Verdasco is known for his fast shots (exceeding 230 km/h), and stopped school aged 11 to pursue his career in professional tennis. He is dating the half sister of Enrique Iglesias, Ana Boyer, and is currently working with Andre Agassi’s coaching team in Las Vegas. And did we mention that winning smile? Swoon!
This Spaniard’s left handed game puts him at a real advantage – and his good looks have landed him modeling campaigns for Hugo Boss and Elle. He has said that he dislikes being called a model, however, and wants to be known for his achievements in tennis. His highest world ranking so far is 12, and he married model Alba Carrillo in 2015.
This fiery Scotsman is considered by some to be the reigning hope for British tennis. After winning Wimbledon in 2013, he was the first British man to raise the trophy at the All England Club since 1936. Other notable achievements include a gold medal win against Federer at the London Olympics in 2012 and and an OBE for his services to tennis – awarded in 2013. Murray is married to long term girlfriend Kim Sears and the couple recently celebrated birth of their first child Sophia.
