Who is the most attractive tennis player ever, on both the men’s and the women’s side?

Ashley Harkleroad was a looker!!!

Hotter than Kournikova anyways, and Kounikova was hot.

"From the centre court to the centrefold. No longer can it be said that Anna Kournikova was the closest that tennis ever came to a Playboy bunny"

Ashley Harkleroad became a bunny.

An entirely unoriginal take but Kournikova and Ivanovic certainly have/had very well-proportioned bodies and sweelt pleasant & expressive countenances. I like that they seem like ultimately good-natured, well-grounded women too, embracing family life.

That said, there are multiple ways to look appealing. I actually like Barty's look, round curves are curves too, she's kind of cute like a big teddy bear :p

I do have an aesthetic appreciation for Borg's and Edberg's serene looks. Edberg still looks as polished as ever, born and bred gentleman. Borg now looks like a wise patriarch, which also suits him great. Safin oozed power. Young Rosewall looks quite handsome on those classic pictures. On the flip side, Lendl and Pete didn't look very lovely but it didn't matter. I think the ugliest top player I've seen was Todd Martin. I was struck how crude he looked, made of misshapen blocks indeed. Well, better look ugly than be ugly on the inside like certain players.
Ivanovic has a gorgeous face of course, but her body well-proportioned? I don't know about that. Jankovic has/had a much nicer figure.

And Sampras was conventionally good looking, I don't know why you say "didn't look very lovely". I guess it's just your personal taste.

Young Pete (teens & early 20s) was handsome, but his looks evolved towards the likeness of a hairy ape with age.

at the peak of their looks, preferably. try to pick just one person for each gender, honorouble mentions are allowed, pics are appreciated

men: I’d say Ernests Gulbis



women: Genie Bouchard, that was easy. not even peak Kournikova comes close IMO.



and before someone will come to say the expected "only women and gays should judge men’s looks (and vice-versa for women)" both genders are perfectly capable of determining whether a person of the same gender is good-looking or not and how much, the only difference is the lack of sexual attraction. Just though I’d better explain it now than later.
Bouchard's chin and monkey-like long arms were always a turn-off for me. Gulbis sure is a looker.

Female tennis players are not really beautiful. Usually too bright shoulders, muscles, ass is too small. However it is much better than 25 years ago, where you had Nose Graf vs Vicario.

On the mens side i think Philippoussis and Rafter are tied for number 1.

Virtually all of the candidates are good looking as far as tennis players go. Which is no shame, many of them are quite easy on the eye.

One of them was endlessly alluring as far as human beings go, full stop.

She broke the internet in her prime.

They turned her into an infamous computer virus because so many gullible men wanted to download photos of her.

Poems were written about her.

Children were named after her.

Women from every latitude or longitude cursed her.

Lewd middle-aged men and hormone-brimming schoolboys googled her in a frenzy.
