WTAhotties 2009 Hot 100: #30 - #21

30- Yanina Wickmayer (#16, BEL)
Fantastic season for the 20 y.o. Belgian, who was semifinalist at the US Open, won 2 WTA titles at Estoril and Linz and reached career-high ranking at #16. Late in the year she was suspended for 1 year for not reporting her 'whereabouts' in a controversial sentence that finally was overturned.

29- Jelena Jankovic (#8, SRB)
Irregular season for the Serbian, who has one of the hottest bodies on the Tour, too bad that we cannoot say the same about her face. Not to mention her taste in clothes.

28- Romana Tabakova (#667,SVK)
This 18 y.o. Slovak also pursues a modelling career, and she even participated in TV show Slovakia's Next Top Model. She'd better focus on tennis, cause after some good results at juniors (semifinalist at Wimbledon 2008) her career seems to be stuck. If she succeeds in reaching the top, she will be a big star.

27- Vitalia Diatchenko (#112, RUS)
Breakthrough season for this 19 y.o. Russian, who had an amazing beggining of season climbing from #262 to #105, but she couldn't keep this level and failed to break into Top-100. As for Jankovic, she has a really hot body that her face does not match.

26- Olivia Sanchez (#314, FRA)
After 3 consecutive Top-200 finishes, the French had a bad season and dropped out of Top-300. Nevertheless she's both hot and cute so she manages to hang on to a good place in our list.

25- Simona Halep (#184, ROM)
This year the 18 y.o. Romanian gained massive popularity when international media published that she was reducing her breast in order to improve her tennis. News quickly spread over websites, blogs, forums and social networks and there were even petition groups asking her not to do it. But she did and it seems it worked, as she managed to climb from #268 in August to #184 in December.

24- Sabine Lisicki (#22, GER)
Great season for the 20 y.o. German, who gained a lot of fans after capturing her 1st WTA title at the Premier event of Charleston and climbing from #54 to a career-high ranking at #22.

23- Marta Domachowska (#137, POL)
The Polish hottie completely lacks regularity and combines good and bacd season. This was a bad one.

22- Heidi El Tabakh (#159, CAN)
The Egypt-born Canadian really took a step forward this season, climbing from #347 to #159. She combined a regular season at the ITF with a surprising performance in the WTA Premier event at Toronto, where she defeated PAvlyuchenkova and Mirza in the to reach the Main Draw, where she lost to Stosur in two tiebreaks.

21- Jelena Dokic (#56, AUS)
Dokic enjoyed a fairytale story in the Australian Open, which she entered after winning the Australian wild-card tournament and where she progressed to the quarters winning all her matches in the third set and taking a set from 3rd seed Dinara Safina. She couldn't repeat this performance due to different physical problems, but ended the season in great form with 2 titles and one runner-up place in ITF tournaments in one month. Started the year ranked #178 and finished at #56.
