She won the French Open last month but was dumped out of Wimbledon by Germany's Sabine Lisicki in the fourth round, ending her dreams of winning back-to-back major titles.

Ana Ivanovic also leads in the beauty stakes, but her tennis career has not been upto the mark.

She won the French Open in 2008, but since then has failed to live up to the top billing, unable to get past the fourth round of any Grand Slam.

She takes on second seed Victoria Azarenka in the fourth round at Wimbledon and hopes to break her poor run at Grand Slams.
