Meet Ashley Harkleroad, the #3 seed in our ranking.

Green grass, short skirts, loud grunts, and all white apparel are the sure signs that Wimbledon 2009 is beginning to heat up. While not all of us may be huge tennis enthusiasts, the on-court eye-candy is more than a good enough reason for us to tune in this weekend. Sure, Gabriela Sabatini, Jennifer Capriati and Anna Kournikova changed the aesthetics of the game, but there's a new batch of stunners who we'd like to take down in straight sets. Before the next round in in Wimbledon starts, enjoy our countdown of the 20 Hottest Female Tennis Players in the Game. Game.Set.Match...
