The Babes of The 2009 US Open

US-OPEN-LEAD

Monday, the best tennis players from around the world converged on Queens, New York for the 2009 US Open. And if you’re a COED reader, you know how much we love us some sexy tennis players! So to get you in the mood for this year’s back-and-forth battle of the rackets, we’ve put together galleries of all the hottest babes of the 2009 US Open. There are a ton of hotties you’ve probably never heard of, and a few omissions that usually make these kinds of lists (sorry Jelena Jankovic and the Williams sisters – you just didn’t make the cut). Enjoy!

Elena-Dementieva-coed

Home Country:Russia

If you like to mix money and women, place your bets on this ravishing Russian winning the whole damn thing. She earned her first international title at age 13; went pro in ‘98, top 100 in ‘99. In 2008, Elena won the Barclays Dubai Tennis Championships (and $1.5 million), her first Tier II title since ‘06. Despite repeatedly making it to many final rounds in ’08 and ’09, we think she’s got another win up her sleeve, shorts–she’s got it hidden there, somewhere.

US Opens Played: 2
Age: 20
Home Country: Romania

With nearly half a million dollars in the bank, this ravaging Romanian has nine ITF singles titles wins and six ITF doubles titles wins, but is yet to land a coveted tournament win in the WTA. But that doesn’t mean we can’t ogle her in the mean time, right?

US Opens Played: 3
Age: 22
Home Country: India

With all the players from the Eastern Bloc crowding the ranks of the tennis hottie world, it’s nice to see someone else making headway. Like 22-year-old Indian cutie, Sania Mirza. Her tennis career began in 2003, and by 2004, she’d already been honored with the Arjuna award, given by the Indian government for outstanding achievement in sports. But we’re talking about India here, so it’s probably too soon to place your bets on this one.

Viktoriya-Kutuzova-coed

Viktoriya Kutuzova

WTA Ranking: 79
US Opens Played: 2
Age: 21
Home Country: Ukraine

Sure, playing as a professional in the US Open has to be pretty great. But for Viktoriya Kutuzova, her career may have peaked a little early. At age 14, the smokin’ Ukrainian beat top 50 player, Lina Krasnoroutskaya and top 30 player, Alexandra Stevenson in the 2003 WTA event in Los Angeles. But she’s still had solid showings ever since, coming in runner-up at Wimbledon, the Australian Open and the US Open, in past years.

Her best Grand Slam performance came at the 2007 French Open and 2008 Australian Open, having made the second round in each tournament. OK, so that doesn’t sound very impressive. But you probably can’t even play ping-pong without breaking a sweat, so whatever…

One of the youngsters at the US Open, Julia Goerges made waves after qualifying for the main draw at the 2007 US Open, but lost in the first round to No. 1-ranked Justine Nenin.

Mathilde-Johansson-coed

Mathilde Johansson

WTA Ranking: 97
US Opens Played: 1
Age: 24

Not only does she speak with a all-too-sexy French accent, but she can swing the hell out of a tennis racket. She’s already landed seven ITF titles, but is yet to win a WTA event. Too bad they don’t give out a prize for hottness!

As winner of the 2008 Australian Open for juniors, this dutch beauty is one of the youngest players at this year’s US Open. So while she doesn’t have as many wins under her belt as many of her competitors, she also doesn’t have a lot of the baggage. Seriously, sometimes these players can just start having flashbacks, like that homeless guy on your stoop. Arantxa doesn’t have that. But she does have a cool name!

diivider1.jpg

Stephanie-Dubois-coed

Stephanie Dubois

WTA Ranking: 113
US Opens Played: 1
Age: 22
Home Country: Canada

Leading up the tail of this list of smokin’ hot tennis tails is Canada’s Stephanie Dubois. The 22-year-old brunette has beat the likes of World No. 1, Kim Clijsters, who she defeated in 2006. And she also won the Lexington Challenger in 2007, after two years of finals and semifinals performances. Save one of the biggest upsets in tennis history, we’re guessing miss Dubois will be out of US Open running early on. Which is all the more reason to check her out now, before it’s too late.
