SEE: Hot photos of female tennis player Maria Sharapova (Photos)
When you speak of hot female athletes, one name rises above the rest in a special place in all the hearts of warm-blooded male sports fans everywhere: Maria Sharapova.
She’s arguably the most popular female tennis player of all time and it’s not just because she’s good at tennis — she’s freakin’ hot.
There’s a reason why she was asked to pose in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition and there’s a reason why she’s the most searched female athlete on the Internet even still here in 2013.
Sharapova is one of the hottest female athletes on the planet and the fact she’s so extremely photogenic certainly doesn’t hurt.
That’s part of the reason why there are dozens of Facebook pages in her honor while most athletes have three or four, total.
Because of that, there are tons of hot pictures of her across the Web, but we have done the work and found the very hottest of those and put them into a nice, neat little gallery for your viewing pleasure.
