Tennis loving cheats are looking for some ‘Wimblefun’ this summer.


Suspicious husbands may want to keep an eye on their spouses during the upcoming Wimbledon Championships as a new study by the UK’s largest extramarital site,, has shown that an overwhelming amount of female adulteresses enjoy a spot of tennis (and not just the tonsil kind).

The site quizzed its database of 900,000 adulterers on which sports they will be either watching or partaking in this summer, and it seems the sport played as singles is the top choice of ladies who are already part of a duo.‘F1’ and ‘Football’ topped the male charts, but just over 40% of the female membership reported a keen interest in playing and watching tennis – new balls please? Cycling and Rugby also appeared high on the list, however in the wake of the world cup, Football appeared last.

Mike Taylor Spokesperson for commented: “tennis, which has long had a tradition predominantly of the middle and upper-classes, is an appropriate interest for the Illicit demographic. Through research we have learnt that the majority of our members are high earning, high achieving, and living in more rural areas like Devon and Berkshire. In cities, gyms are so expensive and there is little space for those who wish to pin up a net, and despite the fact that tennis has undergone a bit of a rebrand in the last ten years, many would still consider it a ‘posh’ sort of sport. In context, we can see why our members, and cheaters overall, would rank tennis higher on their interests list, than the rest of the population.”

The website also asked their female members which male tennis stars make them reach for ice cold water and a towel: gorgeous Spaniard Rafael Nadal topped the list of lust, beefy Argentinian Juan Martin del Potro makes them reach for their racket, as does Maria Sharapova’s Bulgarian boyfriend Grigor Dimitrov, the Swiss master Roger Federer came forth in their hearts, and the strapping German Tommy Haas is number five for a love – love dream match. Unfortunately Andy Murray did not get the ladies pulses racing with just 2% of the vote.

The All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club (AELTC) refused to comment on the findings.


1 Rafael Nadal 23%
2 Juan Martin del Potro 17%
3 Grigor Dimitrov 13%
4 Roger Federer 11%
5 Tommy Haas 10%

Andy Murray received 2% of the female votes. has been running since 2003.
