The quote-unquote tennis star was never much of a player. But Anna Kournikova proved to be quite the marketing mogul and subject of many...

Anna Kournikova lasted about as long on The Biggest Loser as a guy would last in bed with this beaut... nevermind.

The point is: Kournikova will not be returning for a second season of the weight loss competition.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the former tennis player was a "nightmare," often clashing with contestants and never relating to their struggles.

Kournikova's rep, of course, denies that his client was fired, while the blonde bombshell has released the following statement:

"I enjoyed my time on the Biggest Loser ranch. Although I will not be returning as a full time trainer on season 13, I will always be a part of The Biggest Loser family and my commitment to bettering lives through health and fitness will continue."

Anna Kournikova knows plenty about losing: the gorgeous former tennis star has never actually won a professional tournament.

Combine that fact with her killer body and the blonde bombshell fits in perfectly with The Biggest Loser, doesn't she?

According to various sources, Kournikova will join new trainers Cara Castronuova and Brett Hoebel on the series next season, as Jillian Michaels exits the competition in order to focus on a family.

X17 reports that NBC will make this announcement following tomorrow night's season finale. The Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover model has been dating Enrique Iglesias since 2001.

Think she makes a solid choice for The Biggest Loser?

That's one way to bring us out of a recession.

Anna Kournikova rang the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange - and surely the bells of many balding, overweight traders - in New York City on Wednesday.

The 27-year-old former tennis star was there on behalf of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, the community outreach program she's been involved with since 2004.

“I’m proud to be associated with a group like Boys & Girls Clubs of America who recognizes this need and is proactively providing resources to make this happen.”

Wow, actually using her high-profile status to promote a good cause, rather than becoming a complete drain on society? So basically, Anna is the anti-Octomom.

Can Anna Kournikova stimulate a big day for the stock market?

As of this posting, the bellwether NYSE composite index, the Dow Jones Industrial Average, is about even on the day, so it looks like the recession is still on.

Oh well, at least we got some Anna Kournikova pics out of it.

Click to enlarge some more images of the woman who never won a pro singles title in tennis but was definitely the #1 most ogled player on tour for years:

Anna Kournikova raced to the finish line in a triathalon relay over the weekend, but is 100 percent certain Andy Roddick will beat her to the altar.

At the First Annual Nautica South Beach Triathalon, Anna talked to People about the engagement of tennis star Andy Roddick and Brooklyn Decker.

"They're really young, but I hope it works out," she said.

As for her own prospects with boyfriend Enrique Iglesias?

"I'm never getting married," she said. "Everything is good."

Meanwhile, Anna Kournikova may have run four miles as part of a women's relay team and come in first in the women's celebrity division for St Jude's Children's Hospital, but to her it wasn't "very much."

"I just did the four-mile run," she said. "But I just was really doing my normal exercise that I normally do ... I exercise about an hour a day."

Few things are finer than an Anna Kournikova bikini photo. Except for the image of Anna Kournikova naked. Not gonna find that here though.

The exercise regimen of Anna Kournikova includes a full 30 minutes of hitting the weights and 45 minutes of cardio, she explained: "I love the feeling of sweating. I've been exercising my whole life so I really love it."

Just don't count on her to stick to a diet all the time.

"I try to eat as healthy as I can, which is not always possible," she said.
But, you know, I have my Burger King and McDonalds days, too."

Maybe that's why, unlike Maria Sharapova, Anna sucked at tennis. Well, at least compared to the top players. She'd still whoop your ass 6-0, 6-1.

Tennis, anyone?

Even those who aren't fans of the Roger Federer-dominated sport may change their minds once they check out the photos below. For once, Lucy Pinder is wearing clothing... but we don't mind so much when she looks like that.

Lucy Pinder, Michelle Marsh Go Nuts

Typically, of course, Pinder is one of a handful of British babes that refuses to put on a shirt. She even posed that way alongside Michelle Marsh recently.

Not that we're complaining. But the lingerie model may need to get naked once more if she hopes to win this picture battle. After all, she's up against tennis modeling sensation Anna Kournikova. Known more for her body than her skills on the court, the possible wife of Enrique Iglesias is triumphant in most cleavage contests.

For that reason, we advise Pinder to stick to the nudity. Leave the sports up to athletes. As Tila Tequila can attest to, one needs to accept one's role in society.

And for Pinder, Marsh and Keeley Hazell, that role is to pose topless and make sex tapes. It isn't so difficult.

Late last week, we profiled the lovely Lauren Conrad in our celebrity fashion spotlight. Readers somewhat surprisingly approved of LC's short shorts and suspenders look.

Today, we take a look at quote-unquote tennis star Anna Kournikova. The Russian hottie, who never won a singles title despite massive hype, was best known not for her skills, but for being hot and marketing herself incessantly. No complaints here.

In the recent past, however, the girlfriend of Enrique Iglesias has been looking rather gaunt. See this pic at last year's General Motors Annual Ten Celebrity Fashion Show (below, left).

Yeah, downright Nicole Richie like. However, a year later at last week's Nature Conservancy benefit, Anna Kournikova appeared to be a touch thicker and more glamorous (right).

But you tell us. Which Anna Kournikova outfit do you prefer? And do you notice a difference in her appearance? And is Enrique worthy of her love?
