The world of women’s tennis is crammed with beautiful ladies - most of them specifically designed to ensure that John Inverdale has a glistening film of sweat on his brow at all times during Wimbledon. Here is the best one around: 19-year-old Dominika Cibulkova, who hails from the icy shores of freezing cold Slovakia.

Only a few days ago she was walloped off the court in the third round of the US Open by the 9th seed Agnieszka Radwansta, who might have a more beautiful name, but is nowhere near as gorgeous in the flesh. In fact, if tennis was judged purely on looks, this tremendous Slovakian would be second only to Bjorn Borg - the most graceful lady ever to play in the men’s draw.
