In the wise words of Beyonce, “Who run the world?! GIRLS!”
Well, these girls are running the world- the sports world that is. They are hot and good at what they do. I mean, what more could a guy want? Take a look at the top 10 hottest, bad ass female athletes according to TCD!
10. Serena Williams
The GOAT of women’s tennis. Williams is a GOD in the tennis world. I’m surprised she doesn’t have a shrine at Wimbledon yet. Or you know a graveyard for all her opponents. She is ranked number one in women’s singles and is the champion for the Australian Open, US Open, French Open and WTA Tour Championships. She has more wins than the amount of times Kanye looks at himself in the mirror a day. DAYUM. There is no doubt that Serena Williams is the greatest female tennis player of all time. Oh did we mention she has a twin sister? But you already knew that 😉 We rock with you girl! And your sis!
9. Antonija Misura
Misura is a Croatian basketball player from Yugoslavia. She is a point guard and a shooting guard. She has played for the national team in the 2009 Mediterranean Games, EuroBasket Women 2011 and the 2012 Olympics.
8. Skylar Diggins
Model Behavior! Diggins is a WNBA player for the Tulsa Shock and a model. She was drafted in the first round in the 2013 draft after a stellar career at Notre Dame. Diggins is the Irish’s all-time leading scorer with 2,357 points. In 2014, she won the WNBA Most Improved Player and was a WNBA All-Star. You can also catch her in Sports Illustrated.

6. Lolo Jones
Jones is an American track and field athlete who ran the 60 and 100 meter hurdles. She is one of the few athletes that has competed in both the Winter and Summer Olympic games. She holds the American record for the 60 meter hurdles with a time of 7.72 seconds. She is coming off shoulder surgery, but looks to be back at the 2016 games.
5. Silje Norendal
This Norwegian snowboarder is straight up melting the snow with her fire. She competes in the halfpipe, slopestyle and boarder cross and let’s just say her trophy case is pretty solid. She won a gold medal at the Winter X Games Europe in Tignes in 2013 and won a gold medal at the Winter X Games in Aspen in 2014. She added another gold medal this past January when she came in first in the Women’s Snowboard Slopestyle in Aspen. TCD is on board with you Silje!
4. Sydney Leroux
Originally from Canada, Leroux moved to the United States and played soccer at UCLA. She was selected as the number one draft pick in the 2012 WPS Draft by the Atlanta Beat. Leroux was a part of the 2012 Women’s team that won the gold medal in London. She made her way back to Canada as a member of the 2015 U.S. Women’s World Cup team, where they defeated Australia 3-1.
3. Ronda Rousey
Rowdy Ronda Rousey. This girl is a straight baddie. How could anyone forget when Rousey defeated Cat Zingano with an arm bar in 14 seconds? The fastest time in UFC Championship history! UHM WHAT! She is the UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion and Strikeforce Women’s Bantamweight Champion. Her next fight is scheduled in Brazil against Bethe Correia, which should be quite the match up! ICYMI: Check out our preview here! You also might have seen her in the films Furious 7 and the new Entourage movie where she throws DOWN… as expected, of course.
2. Danica Patrick
Well obviously this list wouldn’t be complete with Ms. Patrick and her sexy Go Daddy commercials! I mean, she’s a race car driver and a model. Need I say more? She is the most successful woman in American open-wheel racing. In 2013, Patrick was the first woman NASCAR driver to win a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Pole. She got some disappointing news recently, when she was not chosen to be driving in F1 for the new Gene Haas team in 2016. It’s okay Danica, TCD still loves you!
Numero UNO, Alex Morgan. She’s hot af and she kicks ass. You probably remember Morgan from the Olympic games in London in 2012. She was a part of the Women’s soccer team that took the gold. Morgan was the number one draft pick in 2011 and already has five years of international experience. She is on the U.S. national team for this upcoming World Cup, but her playing time is unsure due to a bruised bone in her left knee. But seriously look at that photo. Smoking hot.
There you have it. These women are beautiful, talented and can kick some serious ass. Enough said.
