Write-up: One of the emerging stars of women’s tennis after winning all three tournaments of her career in 2009. She was also a set up against Serena Williams in the 4th Round of 2009’s Australian Open before having to retire. ‘Vika’ is still only 20 years old and says she spends a lot of her money on shopping – clothes, shoes, bags, jewellery. Fair enough, she’s already earned more than $4 million, Australian.
Nova knows her because: We didn’t know her so we searched for her name and saw a video of her apparently yelling ‘whore, bitch’ in Russian during a game, then posing in her bikinis for FHM. That should keep her fresh in our memory. You can see those videos we found below by the way.
