Jeter found an athletic girl to compliment his abilities. Davis, a native of St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands, was a champion tennis player in the Carribean.

She told Sports Illustrated, “I was traveling throughout the Caribbean and then I was going to these national tournaments in the summer all over the U.S.”

She actually stopped modeling for a time to pursue the game. “Eventually I had to quit modeling because I was trying to balance modeling and tennis at the same time. It was a struggle. I had my coach coming with me to fashion shoots and it was all mixed up,” she told the magazine.

3. He’s 16 Years Older

“Derek and Hannah were really into each other. She stayed close by his side all night. He seems really into her,” a source told the NY Daily News.
