Oh man, I never thought I'd see the day where I was a Kournikova defender...
As long as Danica never wins a race, she's just a lesser hotter version of Anna. People forget that Anna was actually supremely talented. I believe a top 3 junior, went to the Semis of Wimbledon as a teen, and of course, many many titles in doubles (was ranked #1 doubles for a bit, I believe) including grand slams. The problem with Anna was that she never got better, while all of her peers did. But when she first came out, her potential was considered quite high, and for good reasons. One could probably say that all the distractions just made her a lesser player than she could have been.
By the way, I don't find Anna *that* attractive. I wouldn't kick her out of bed, of course, but as far as celebrity hotness goes, she's a bit down on the depth chart.
