Entries in Daniela Hantuchova (8)
On the eve of the Australian Open, IMG hosted their annual bash for players and local celebrities alike. While strict schedules meant most players were unable to stop for a chat, all of them dressed up to the nines for the event and posed for photos on the red carpet. French restaurant, Breezes, was transformed into a Chinese-themed party with drinks flowing and a gourmet barbeque on offer.
Ryan Harrison was the first to arrive and although I would have preferred it if he had tucked in his shirt, he still looked pretty damn handsome.
In 2011, we got to Vera Zvonareva in the buff, and this year another tennis player will grace the pages of ESPN's 'Body Issue' - Daniela Hantuchova. The 2012 issue will be available for you to peruse at your leisure on July 13th.
In the issue, the 5'11 Slovak beauty said,
"Talent is one step away from being lazy." I read that when I was 12 and told myself that I would do everything I could to not let that happen to me.
To see all the photos in the issue, click here. The photography is truly amazing.

Thanks to the wonderful peeps at Adidas, Daniela Hantuchova took a little time out of her schedule to answer a few questions for OTGT. She talks about the people who inspire her, her love of high heels, and what she would do if she wasn't a tennis player. Enjoy!!

Tennis has started, TENNIS HAS STARTED! I want to run around and scream that from the top of my lungs, but since I don't want people to think I am odd, I'll just scream it on here.
I am really excited about the beginning of the 2012 season because for me, and I would wager for many of you, TENNIS, whether watching it or playing it, is the best therapy money can't buy. So, are you ready for the 2012 season to begin? Just to wet your appetite, here are some tennis happenings around the globe:
In 2012, in addition to betting on your favorite player, you can place a bet on which "glamour couple" will do the best this season. It's Wozzilroy vs. Scottovic. Let the games begin.
I am really excited that Venus Williams will be back on the big stage in 2012. In this article, which has excerpts from her upcoming People magazine interview, Venus talks about her journey since being diagnosed with Sjogren's Syndrome. In other Venus news, if you are a college student in the South Florida region, listen up! V is holding a t-shirt contest where you can win a chance to meet her at the Sony Ericcson Open in Miami!
In addition to missing the Williams sisters, I've also really missed Kim Clijsters. If you have missed her too, check out this video of her in Brisbane hanging out with her new friend Theresa!
Dani has got legs for days....
I think I just fell in love with David Ferrer even more (which I didn't think was possible), he prefers to be a "thinker" than a "sportsman."
Ana Ivanovic is a "Natural Beauty" as if we didn't already know... :)
Some wonderful quotes on how tennis can reveal a lot about the meaning of life.
Take a peek at what SI deems are the best tennis photos of 2011.
Happy Holidays everyone!
Whoa! momma. Daniela Hantuchova looks absolutely stunning as she poses for her 2012 calendar. She's pretty darn good at tennis, but if she wanted to change careers, I'm pretty sure there is a catwalk with her name on it. Enjoy!
