Former Wimbledon tennis star Ashley Harkleroad turns OnlyFans model
Ashley Harkleroad, a former Wimbledon tennis champion, has opened an OnlyFans account and has switched her focus from balls to bikinis. Although Harkleroad has recently begun sharing explicit content, she first gained attention for her seductive charms when she posed topless for the Playboy magazine cover when her career as a player was at its height. Harkleroad, who once held the ranking of 39 in the world, made close to $10,56,120 while competing in tennis. Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova were two of the champions she faced off against. Nevertheless, her present work path is quite different.
After participating in the Wimbledon singles draw six times and making it to the third round in 2006, the 37-year-old former tennis player claims she is the first ex-professional to choose this career route. “I’m the first Professional tennis player to ever be on the cover of Playboy and now on Onlyfans,” asserts Harkleroad.
Throughout her career, Hakleroad and a partner advanced to the quarterfinals of the US Open and Australian Open in doubles. She posed for Playboy in 2008 and cited Amanda Beard’s 2007 cover as her inspiration. She stated: “I thought about it, and it was something that I did. I’m proud of my body. I was representing a female athlete’s body.”
OnlyFans from Harkleroad is a premium subscription that runs about $8.50 per month. Other athletes have also joined the site in an effort to communicate with their fans more effectively, including Madelene Wright of football, Liz Cambage of basketball, and Renee Gracie of racing.
