Revealed: SI Swimsuit To Feature Tennis Hotties

As we await the 2009 SI Swimsuit Issue, I’ve now confirmed at least two athletes who will be appearing in the issue: Russian tennis players 21-year-old Maria Kirilenko and and 20-year-old Tatiana Golovin.

Both are credible players, with the oft-injured Golovin ranked as high as #12 this year, and Kirilenko #18. But neither has even sniffed a Grand Slam title. (Not that it matters of course.)

Some advice for the girls for their SI shoots:

Pack light.

More photos of the two lovelies after the jump. Both have modeled before, with Golovin already the veteran of a steamy FHM layout:

Based on the fact that she’s dating Arsenal midfielder Samir Nasri, it appears Golovin has a little famewhore in her. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

Kirilenko has modeled for adidas’ Stella McCartney collection (wot?) and appeared in TEEN VOGUE. She’s also close friends with Maria Sharapova:

(Whoa. Time to hop a flight on Aeroflot!)

From her photos, I’d say Kirilenko’s considerably hotter than Golovin. But both are certainly enjoyable to look at.

Also safe to say: Golovin and Kirilenko’s pics will be considerably hotter than SI’s previous shoots with Maria Sharapova and Serena Williams:
