The Beautiful Women of the 2013 Australian Open [PHOTOS]

Australian Open

The first big televised tennis event of 2013 is here — The Australian Open. While some viewers are choosing to write off the competition because Rafael Nadal isn’t going to compete, those people are clearly watching the sport for all the wrong reasons.

What about the beautiful women playing tennis? Their hair might be no match for Rafa’s glorious flow, but that doesn’t mean their matches are any less exciting. In fact, I argue that women’s tennis is the only sport as exciting to watch as men’s tennis.

Those of you who want to watch the action live are reminded that the games can be watched on ESPN, ESPN2, or ESPN3 at “Unholy Hours in the Morning EST.”  The time difference is a a bit rough, so if you’re looking to catch some sleep, we would suggest checking out the ladies’ photographic highlights below.
