The Russian star also shone bright outside the clay as she was voted the world’s sexiest woman back in 2002, beating the likes of Britney Spears and Jennifer Lopez.

She was also recognised as the sexiest female tennis player of all time in 2010.

However, a string injuries – mostly back problems – led to an early retirement in 2003 when she was only 21 years old.

The now 41-year-old has since lived a quiet life with her pop star partner Enrique Iglesias.

The star couple met in 2001 while filming Iglesias’ music video for Escape.

They are now living under the radar away from the spotlight alongside their three kids.

Kournikova and Iglesias welcomed twins Nicholas and Lucy in 2017 as well as Mary in 2020.

The ex-tennis star doesn’t appear to miss her former glamorous lifestyle as she rarely shares on social media.


Kournikova’s latest Instagram post took place last year as she shared a family snap celebrating Iglesias’ 47th birthday.

She issued the following caption: “Happy Birthday to the most amazing Dad! We super love you!!”

That was her first post in an entire year as she likes to have a private personal life.
