Stunning former Wimbledon star posed nude and said “my legs are my best part”

In 2002, Slovakian tennis star Daniela Hantuchova achieved the result of her young career: a quarter-final appearance at Wimbledon.

10 years later, with Hantuchova yet to better than outing in SW19, she bared all for ESPN's 'body issue'. Hantuchova followed in the footsteps of fellow sports stars, such as former UFC star Ronda Rousey, to drop her robe for the cover of the magazine.

The Slovakian star told ESPN, shortly after the issue hit shelves: "I'm always open to new opportunities, so I figured why not? I wanted to do it with class and not show too much of anything."

Hantuchova added, when asked what she liked about her body the most: "My legs are my best part.

"Most of that is my genes, so I have to thank my parents. My mother has wonderful legs – more beautiful than mine, I think – and my dad was pretty tall."

The Slovak added she never feels self-conscious about her body: "Absolutely not. I think I was so focused on tennis and trying to win, as well as school and piano, that there was never really time to think about that."

Hantuchova's best-ever grand slam appearance came at the Australian Open in 2008 – when she reached the quarter-finals.

However, the Slovakian's best results came in mixed doubles with Zimbabwean partner Kevin Ullyett – who she finished runner-up with at Wimbledon in 2002, as well as claiming the Australian Open earlier that year.

Alongside Czech partner Leoš Friedl, Hantuchova claimed the mixed doubles title at Wimbledon in 2001.

She formally retired from tennis in 2017, and now works regularly as a broadcaster and pundit.
