Serena Williams in looking gorgeous in the pages of Sports Illustrated’ Swimsuit Issue looking vicious in a collection of swimwear.
One of the world’s greatest athletes also has one of the world’s greatest bodies, something that can be easily noticed.
Serena wore seven swim styles on the Turks and Caicos shoot…including a topless look and a thong bikini. The tennis player told she’s never worn a thong bikini, so for that to be also her first shot, was like “a shot of espresso” for her, because she had to wake up immediately.” The thong is perfect; it really made me feel comfortable. I’m officially a thong girl now!” – She continued.
Back in 2015, Serena Williams was crowned the Sportsperson of the Year by Sports Illustrated. She also became the first woman in 32 years and the first black woman ever to win the award. During her acceptance speech, she didn’t hesitate to address body shaming and criticism that she had to face during her career. The speech was motivating and very inspiring for other women.
Williams told that people put her down because she didn’t look like them and because she looked stronger than she should, people that have looked past her because of the color of her skin, people that have overlooked her because she is a woman.
Now, in a grand gesture for the ages, Serena has made her way back to the pages of SI Swimsuit. The tennis superstar shuts down the critics once and for all, proving that strong is, and always has been, sexy.
In some pictures Williams also went topless, but covered her boobs with her hands. However the pictures are professionally shot and very artistic, showing Serena as beautiful as always.
Her fiancé Alexis Ohanian also added a photo of the tennis star looking amazing in a lime-green bikini on his Instagram page with a very simple and very accurate caption: “The greatest”.
