National Tennis Month: Anna Kournikova, 2004

Here we have a pic that’s the opposite of Steffi Graf’s. Anna Kournikova lounges on the sand while the waves lap at her. She’s much softer looking, much more at home in a girlie magazine.If I didn’t know she was a tennis player, I would probably not have blinked at her presence in the swimsuit issue.

TRIVIA: The band Tin Hat Trio has a musical piece called “Anna Kournikova” on their album “Helium.” It’s a lilting, two-and-a-half-minute acoustic tango of guitar, accordion and violin. I have no idea why it's named after her.
