Slovakian tennis player Daniela Hantuchova does not consider herself a sex symbol but many men on the Internet may disagree and considering that she seems to be getting more attention for her modelling pictures than her play on the tennis court she may have to make a decision in the near future about what direction she wants to go with her career.
For the past several years Daniela Hantuchova's tennis career has seemed to stall and when one looks at her body it seems as if she has not evolved as the game of women's tennis has changed. It is now a power game and Daniela Hantuchova's body has not become stronger despite her having the structure to put on more muscle which would enable her to be more effective when returning the serve or ground strokes from players such as Maria Sharapova and Serena Williams.
The question that is starting to be discussed about Daniela Hantuchova is whether she is more concerned with her appearance as a model or being a successful tennis player. Her pictures in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Magazine from 2009 and those of her in ESPN's "The Body" Magazine shoot show a body that is very attractive but not one that suggests a very powerful individual when compared to the physiques of Serena Williams, Maria Sharapova or even some of the top up and coming younger players.
Daniela Hantuchova has always had the athleticism and stamina to be a successful tennis player but in sports and in life an individual must evolve with their career or become like a dinosaur and become extinct. Daniela Hantuchova must decide whether she is going to adapt her physique and game to the new style of play that has taken over women's professional tennis or will she become extinct.
Daniela Hantuchova and her exquisite beauty became known to the Internet and sporting world because of her accomplishments as a successful tennis player, not the other way around. The question for her in 2014 is whether she is willing to change to become a successful tennis player at this stage of her career or is she going to make the transition into modelling and possibly acting in the near future?
