Maria Sharapova — Crush of the Day


How is it that we’ve neglected to praise Maria Sharapova, one of the world’s greatest (and hottest) tennis players, on our Crush list? Well today we right a terrible wrong by naming the Russian tennis champ as our Crush of the Day.

Sharapova received another honor today – she was chosen to carry the Russian flag at the London Olympics opening ceremony.

The 25-year-old athlete announced that she would participate in the Olympics flag ceremony on her Facebook page Thursday. “I am so honored, and especially excited as it will be my first Olympics in my career,” she wrote.

The Olympics honor comes on the heels of Sharapova’s first French Open win. She completed her first career Grand Slam last weekend by defeating Sara Errani and is now one of few women to win all four major titles.

Sharapova is one of the best and sharpest tennis players in the world today, and she’s also one of our favorite Sports Illustrated swimsuit models. Her athletic figure and sunny smile has also landed her other modeling gigs for big name brands like Nike and Cole Haan.

She’s a talented, hard-working, athletic and beautiful sports superstar who doesn’t mind baring her body for the occasional magazine spread. Yeah, we’re crushing hard on Maria Sharapova.
