The top women of tennis have something in common with Superman. They too have identities apart from their main job. Their alter egos are not so secret, but they are better covers than the man of steel. Does anyone really not know Clark Kent is Superman?
They don’t hide behind glasses, but when they let their hair down, some of the ladies are almost unrecognizable from their images on the tennis courts. No super hero outfits to hide and no tennis clothes in sight.
As ambassadors of tennis, the top ten women attend many social functions. The slideshow proves that the women of tennis leave good impressions wherever they appear.
