Kicking off a week packed with promotional stops, Anna Kournikova made an appearance on "Live! with Regis & Kelly" earlier today (September 20).

Dressed casually in a gray hoodie and jeans, the 30-year-old sports star took to the talk show to dish about her new role as coach on the upcoming season of "The Biggest Loser."

While injuries curtailed Anna's career as a top ten tennis player in the world, she says her relentless years of training for the sport prepared her for her latest gig.

"My mom really instilled the commitment and discipline in me. It's really helped me throughout life and that's why I'm so passionate about sports and fitness and promoting that healthy lifestyle, and spreading the world especially to kids," Miss Kournikova told the hosts.

She added, "You can learn so much through sports. It teaches you all these amazing skills you can use in life, not just while you're playing sports."
