Daniela Hantuchova Body Issue 2012 (Jeff Lipsky/ESPN)

Since it's debut in 2009, ESPN's Body Issue has made it a point to prominently feature tennis players. In fact their best selling Body Issue featured Serena Williams in all her glory in the issue's debut. Since then, Esther Vergeer repped the yellow fuzzy balls in 2010, and Vera Zvonareva was featured in 2011. So who would be the face (er...body?) of tennis this year? Daniela Hantuchova.

Daniela has always been one of the glamour girls of tennis and her addition to lineup is, at least in my opinion, a nice way to round out the group of four tennis players who have been chosen for the Body Issue over the years. You don't have to have a singular body-type to succeed in this sport and that was further proven at Wimbledon, when 5-foot-6 Agnieszka Radwanska handled Serena's power game and even threw in some crafty offense of her own.
