anna Kournikova never won a tennis tournament in her life but she was so popular?

Because of her looks. She played in that time, maybe around early 2000s where society was more patriarchal. When the society is more patriarchal, a woman's talent is less valued and her worthless qualities is more valued. Since Anna Kournikova is a Russian woman, she has less physical strength to play tennis than other women. So she took the advantage of her looks to rise.
If she played in present time, I don't think any person would ever value her because today's people are more intelligent and sensible than before. I know she has looks, but in reality she is worthless like Maria Sharapova. The more beautiful a woman is, the lower is her physical strength. Anna is a skinny woman so she couldn't play tennis so well like Serena. But in reality, ugly women like Serena win the game. Skinny girls like Anna should play gymnastics or skating where no "Strength" is required.
RUSSIAN LADIES ARE KNOWN MORE FOR THEIR LOOKS THAN THEIR TALENT!!

She got a lot of attention because she was hot blonde and beautiful she had modest results on court but was never a top player

That's more of a statement than a question really isn't it? She became popular because of her looks. She made much more money from modelling contracts then she ever did on the court.

Not true. Anna is actually a two time grand slam champion in doubles. She was in fact ranked as the #1 doubles player in the world multiple times. She wasn't a champion often as a singles player but was ranked as high as 8th in the world at her peak. She does have 2 ITF singles titles, and 16 WTA doubles titles. She was also a model, who appeared in small film roles and music videos from time to time. She also dated a few famous people. All that said, it's not much of a wonder that she was popular, she did accomplish quite a lot in her young life.

Because she was good looking and attractive,it also should be noted that while she never won a WTA tournament that she did get as high as #8 in the world rankings and also made it to the semi finals of Wimbledon in 1997.
