In the world of women's tennis, there are a handful of players who possess a consummate mix of beauty and skill.

Sweat-drenched tennis stunners Anna Kournikova, Ana Ivanovic, and Maria Sharapova are just some of the names that could keep your eye off the ball and make it hard for you to focus on matches. You'd be lying if you say you watch the sport just for the über intense in-game action...

Enter Katharina Lehnert, a 21-year-old lawn looker who can easily set the nets—as well as the hearts of the audience members—on fire:

Killer features, right? Well, what if we told you that this lovely tennis lass is half-Filipina? Crush Mode, ON!


Katharina's mother, Imelda Lungsod, hails from La Union. She met Kath's father, retired soccer player Sebastian Lehnert, while working in Germany. (Thank God for that love story!)

Even though she clearly inherited her athletic genes from her father, it was actually her mother who convinced Kath to shift from soccer to tennis at the age of seven.

After playing for Germany and winning a couple of junior titles in International Tennis Federation-sanctioned tournaments, the chicken adobo- and halo-halo-loving Fil-German netter decided to carry the Philippines' colors at the Incheon Asian Games 2014.

She also represented the country at the recently-concluded SEA Games held in Singapore, where she scored a bronze medal in the women’s singles, and a couple of silvers in the doubles and team events.

And why wouldn't she be? With all the hard work she's been putting up, Katharina is primed for tennis superstardom.

Upon stalking digging deeper into her social media accounts, we also learned that Katharina's tennis game is not the only thing on point; she also has a wonderful candid shot game.

We know it got a little bit weird there for a minute, but that's what crushing on someone is all about. Here's to hoping we'd see more of Katharina in the future—or on our pages!
