Jelena Jankovic currently lives in Florida, but was originally born in 1985 in Belgrade Serbia. She is 5’9.5″ tall and 134 lbs. She is a beautiful young woman, and if you check out a few of those pics you’ll know that her arms and delts are bigger than mine. There is no shame in this, it just means she would manhandle me both on and off the court. One little-known fact about Jelena, she plays piano. I would love to hear a few romantic sounds from her fingertips.
Nicole Rollolazo started out in dance at the age of four but quickly graduated to gymnastics. She was very competitive in that arena, but also ran track and field and was a diver. She won her pro card after winning the Los Angeles Fitness Championships and the USA Nationals in 2002. She is now a personal trainer
Maria Kirilenko, muh muh muh mercy. She’s a right-handed bomber from Moscow Russia, standing 5’8″ tall and weighing 127 lbs. When off-court, her blond hair does an excellent job framing her golden eyes (check them out in the last pic, which is courtesy of her website). Her body is summed up thusly: strong bones wrapped in elegant sinew capped with perfect skin. She obviously incorporates weight training into her workouts. She enjoys fishing, which is nice since I’d love to let her catch me.
Michelle Bellini is another muscular blast from the past. Her most recent contest was the IFBB Fitness International in 1999 where she placed 15th. She is 39 years old, stands 5’6″ tall, and weighs 130 lbs. Her measurements are 34-19-32. Michelle was always active in dance and cheerleading in high school, but after she graduated she missed the activity of organized sports. She went to a gym to try weightlifting and bodybuilding, and never looked back.
Daniela Hantuchova is from Slovakia and is about 25 years old. She is 5’11” tall and weighs 136 lbs. She turned pro about ten years ago and has been turning my head ever since. Her favorite surface is grass, and her favorite actors are George Clooney and Brad Pitt. Pitt looks like a rat compared to me, so I’m sure I’ve got a serious chance with this European fitness honey.
Mandy Blank has sort of been out of the limelight for the last 8 or 10 years. Back in the 1990’s she was on the cover of Muscle & Fitness several times and seemed to be taking the world by storm. She was born in Daytona Beach Florida back in 1976. She is 5’4″ tall and used to compete at 118 lbs. She says she’s always had a taste for peanut butter ice cream, but it’s hard to tell just looking at her tight abs and butt.
Ana Ivanovic is a stunning tennis goddess. I usually watch tennis matches with the TV muted, so I can’t tell you if she’s a grunter or not. She is 6’1″ tall and weighs 152 lbs. She was born in 1987 in Switzerland. She idolized Monica Seles growing up, and has been playing since she was 5.
She’s hard to track down, but for those of you who can’t do without her, here’s Ana Usategui:

We need to branch out a little bit and cover some bikini contest action. All of these girls are fit, so parading around in bikini seems natural, much less covering them here on the blog. I apologize for the quality of the pics. It was night time, and our photog had a hard time getting perfect shots.
Heather Downey is a fitness model who, as a child, had a very active life. She grew up on a farm, and says she didn’t play video games and send text messages, she climbed trees chased farm animals. She was also a competitive swimmer and a cheerleader. She developed her addiction to weight training and bodybuilding in high school, and after graduating she helped train others. She’s been on the cover of several fitness magazines, including my favorite Muscle & Ftiness.
