Anna Kournikova gives a press conference marking the opening of a new day time centre for minors in Russia's northern capital in Moscow, Russia on October 8, 2009. The retired tennis star arrived in Russia to promote a project financed by YouthAIDS, a worldwide HIV prevention and health education initiative of Population Services International (PSI).

As a member of the WTP Tour, Anna Kournikova was easily the most popular player in the sport. However, as anyone with even the slightest knowledge of tennis will attest, Kournikova's fame had little to do with her play on the court. The Russian starlet was beloved for her looks and sexy public appearances, but never won a singles title during her career. She is most famous for her relationships with hockey players Sergei Federov, Pavel Bure, and currently with pop singer Enrique Iglesias. Other than spending time with Iglesias, Kournikova is busy working as a K-Swiss spokesperson, promoting charitable causes and playing the occasional charity match.
