Anna Kournikova will be a trainer on The Biggest Loser

Russia's Anna Kournikova reacts during her Ladies Invitation doubles match with Switzerland's Martina Hingis against Britain's Anne Hobbs and Samantha Smith at the 2010 Wimbledon tennis championships in London

Even though she has never won a WTA singles title and rose no higher than No. 8 in the world, I still consider Anna Kournikova the best player in the history of women’s tennis (please don’t bother me with your “statistics” and your “facts.”). She is also the finest export Russia has ever produced, if you don’t count Yakov Smirnoff (I don’t), and actual Smirnoff (I do). Anyway, since we’ve always been your finest source for Anna Kournikova news, here you go:

Anna Kournikova will be the sports trainer for the next season of ‘The Biggest Loser USA’, reports x17online. Kournikova will be relocating from her $9 million house in Miami to Los Angeles for her new job.

So, anyone in the market for a house once owned by Anna Kournikova?

Kournikova has been out of competitive women’s tennis for the past eight years (a back injury is the main reason), save for an appearance in the Ladies Invitational Doubles at Wimbledon in 2010. So it’s about time she showed up on a reality show. And as TV executives are about to find out, there is nothing like a hot babe wielding a paddle-like instrument to motivate people to lose weight. Get ready for ratings domination, NBC.
