Anna Kournikova is like no other athlete in sports today. An awesome combination of beauty with a killer backhand, she is hot property both on and off the tennis court. From the get-go she was a star and her stock is still rising. Magazine covers, billboards, websites - Anna is a box office sensation and a marketing man's dream, as comfortable on the cover of 'Vogue' as she is 'Sports Illustrated'.
Everywhere she goes, the cameras and her legions of fans follow, drawn by her looks, her style and her impressive all-court game. Since turning pro, Anna has become the first player in 11 years to beat four top-10 ranked players in the same tournament, has won a grand slam double title and has been ranked as high as 8th in the world.
Her story is a true Cinderella tale - a tennis prodigy who left Russia for the US to pursue her ambition to make it as a professional - and is brought to life inside these pages with words and stunning photos of Anna at every stage of her career.
