The Tennis Girl is a British poster that has become a pop icon. The photograph was taken by Martin Elliott in September and features year-old Fiona Butler   now Walker ,   his girlfriend at the time. The site is occupied now by the university's Tennis Court halls of residence. The image was first published as part of a calendar by Athena for the Silver Jubilee , the same year Virginia Wade achieved the Wimbledon ladies' singles title. Butler, who broke up with Elliot three years later, said in retrospect that she was not embarrassed about posing, nor bitter that she did not receive any royalties from the photo.
When tennis babes strip NAKED – a look back at pros posing in the buff
Russian tennis player Vera Zvonareva poses nude for a magazine.
This year's tournament is now under way with the game's biggest names locking horns in south west London. Now Daily Star Online looks back on some of the game's sexiest athletes, past and present, who stripped completely naked for the camera. In one image a nude Venus, five-time singles champion at Wimbledon, turns away from the camera to expose her bare buttocks. Caroline Wozniacki, a former World No 1 competing at this year's event, is seen in one shot completely naked holding a tennis racket. And in another racy shot, former world No 2 Vera Zvonareva leans back in a chair with just her arm to cover her nipples. But in perhaps the raunchiest shoot, Slovak stunner Daniela Hantuchova bends down naked in one image and stands starkers in another.

Tennis is a worldwide most famous game. It followed by millions around the world. I am a great fan of tennis and have watched almost all the tournaments. The hottest female tennis players list include some of the best players in the game today, and some of the sexiest girls to have ever played the game. These babes show off their goods and their tennis skill in the field and look gorgeous doing it.
On the slick pages of the new official magazine for the women's tennis tour, there are the ubiquitous images of Anna Kournikova in different stages of a hair toss, snapshots of the curvaceous sports cars preferred by the top stars and a glimpse of the luxury hotels frequented by the players on the road. On one page, Venus and Serena Williams are in a paparazzi shot dressed in slinky evening wear. On the next, a player on a reprinted poster has her back to the camera, lifting her skirt while grabbing her own bare bottom. There are player tips on buying diamonds, moisturizers and salt scrubs, but no tips on shot selection, no discussions on strategy. Before, it was about playing tennis.
