WTAhotties 2009 Hot 100: #40 - #31

40- Alize Cornet (#49, FRA)
The French Lolita felt the pressure after her great 2008 season and failed to defend the points, dropping to the limit of Top-50.

39- Agnes Szavay (#39, HUN)
Szavay had 8 consecutive defeats between the end of 2008 and the beggining of 2009, but she secured a place in Top-40 thanks to her good results on clay, including the title in home tournament at Budapest.

38- Jie Zheng (#35, CHN)
Irregular season for the cute Chinese, who peaked at #15 in May setting a Chinese record, but dropped out of Top-30 after being unable to defend points of her semifinalist place at Wimbledon 2008.

37- Ioana Raluca Olaru (#72, ROM)
After her breakthrough in 2007, in 2008 she dropped out of Top-100. But 2009 was again a good year for the Romanian who reached her first WTA final and a career-high ranking at #53.

36- Andrea Petkovic (#55, GER)
The Bosnian-born German came back after an 8-months break in 2008 due to a knee injury. And not only she recovered her place in Top-100, but she also won her 1st WTA title and reached a career-high ranking at #52.

35- Julia Goerges (#77, GER)
Best season so far for the German, who reached her career-high ranking at #76.

34- Severine Bremond Beltrame (#151, FRA)
The veteran French (30 y.o.) is far from her best level lately, but still is one of the prettiest players. She divorced Eric Bremond and recovered her last name Beltrame.

33- Petra Cetkovska (#149, CZE)
The cute Czech wasn't able to repeat her great 2008 season and dropped out of Top-100.

32- Nicole Vaidisova (#187, CZE)
Horrible season for Vaidisova, who continues her free falling in the ranking since she started dating Radek Stepanek. Her last win in a WTA main draw was in April. New coach Eric Van Harpen will try to get her tennis back.

31- Stefania Chieppa (#426, ITA)

Women's tennis is not only about WTA. A lot of hotties can be found on the ITF tournaments, and glamorous Italian Stefania Chieppa is one of them. This season she enjoyed her moment of glory by defeating Top-100 Karolina Sprem in the qualifying of Premier WTA event at Rome.
