Know how to make your favorite things better? Combine the two of them. Earlier this week we dropped our Top 100 Sports Moments of the decade list, and thought, Hmmm, what could we possibly add to improve upon that? How about we take our Top 100 Sports Moments x Top 100 Hottest Girls of the decade to make our a list of our top female athletes from the 2000s? So here it is, our sweat-drenched list of the hotties who sweat it out on the field of play. Game on...

HopeSolo

10. HOPE SOLO, 28
SPORT: SOCCER
WHY SHE'S HOT: In the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, Hope helped team U.S.A. win a gold medal by shutting out Brazil in the final. We're usually not into girls who are known for cock ball blocking but Hope is so good-looking we'll give her a pass.

9. AMANDA BEARD, 28
SPORT: SWIMMING
WHY SHE'S HOT: This other team U.S.A. beauty wears a bathing suit to work, has posed nude for Playboy, and has won seven Olympic medals. Plus she specializes in the breaststroke. The give out medals for breast strokes? We're going for the gold in 2012!

Miwa-Asao

8. MIWA ASAO, 23
SPORT: BEACH VOLLEYBALL
WHY SHE'S HOT: Miwa has been credited with bringing national attention to her sport with her good looks. She's also been referred to as the "pixie of beach volleyball." Sony, MXC, and now Miwa in a two-piece can be added to the long list of things we have to thank Japan for.

danica

7. DANICA PATRICK, 27
SPORT: AUTO RACING
WHY SHE'S HOT: A pioneer for women in racing, Danica became the first woman to win a IndyCar race in April 2008 at the Indy Japan 300. Girl knows how to make the stick shift.

6. NATALIE GULBIS, 26
SPORT: GOLF
WHY SHE'S HOT: There are only three things that can make us tune into watch something as boring as golf. One is Tiger dominating the competition, the other two are on Natalie Gulbis.

JeanetteLee'BlackWidow'

5. JEANETTE "THE BLACK WIDOW" LEE, 38
SPORT: BILLIARDS
WHY SHE'S HOT: After two decades in the game, "The Black Widow" has over 20 titles under her belt. Now we've heard that black widows are cannibals known for killing their mate after sex, but Lee's so hot that we'll take our chances.

maliajones

4. MALIA JONES, 32
SPORT: SURFING
WHY SHE'S HOT: When she's not doing photo shoots for Sports Illustrated or People's "50 Most Beautiful People" feature, this Hawaiian hottie hangs 10 on the regular. So yeah, she could handle a ride our long board.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
sharapova

3. MARIA SHARAPOVA, 22
SPORT: TENNIS
WHY SHE'S HOT: Since bursting onto the scene with her win at Wimbledon in 2004, the long-legged Russian has kept us at love with her rep as the scream queen. We can only imagine the noises she'd make if we ever get to put the ball in her court.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
serena

2. SERENA WILLIAMS, 28
SPORT: TENNIS
WHY SHE'S HOT: Currently ranked as the number one women's tennis player in the world with 11 grand slam titles. The curvaceous Compton native is one of our favorites and really the only girl in tennis who has the body to rock the full body catsuit.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
gina-carano

1. GINA CARANO, 27
SPORT: MIXED MARTIAL ARTS
WHY SHE'S HOT: You have to love a chick who could kick your ass and look fine as hell while doing it. This badass babe caught our attention choking out other broads in the octagon. Hopefully someday she'll put us in a hold and make us tap out.
