Tennis player named sexiest woman in Russian politics

Russian internet users were asked to take part in vote for the sexiest woman in Russian politics prior to the Sate Duma election scheduled for December 4.

­Unexpectedly, the honor went to tennis player Anna Chakvetadze, who will run for parliament for the Right Cause party.

The 24-year-old has beaten all-time favorite of such surveys – former rhythmic gymnastics queen Alina Kabaeva from United Russia – by just a couple dozen of votes.     

Third place went to red-headed Russian spy-girl, Anna Chapman, with over 7,000 people participating in the voting overall.

Chakvetadze turned to politics after her sporting career was threatened by health problems.

The Muscovite, who has won eight WTA titles and was World No.5 in 2007, has played just 14 matches this year, winning only six of them.
