As an Olympic gold medal winner she’s got the body of a champion.
And Serena Williams was not camera shy when it came to putting her phenomenal figure on display in the latest issue of The Fader magazine.
The 35-year-old tennis pro showed off her shapely derriere in tiny panties and cropped top for her feature cover story on Tuesday where she defended her sexuality.
When questioned by the magazine about the public’s opinion of her sexuality, the 2016 Best Female Tennis Player ESPY Award winner seemed unfazed.
‘You know, it was, “She’s too strong,” and then, “She’s too sexy,” and then, “She’s too strong,” again.
‘So I’m like, “Well, can you choose one?”‘ Serena laughed. ‘But either way, I don’t care which one they choose.’
‘I’m me and I’ve never changed who I am.’
Serena – who holds the most major singles, doubles, and mixed doubles titles combined amongst active players, male or female – looked radiant for her photo shoot.
The sports superstar offered a glimpse of her athletic physique in the Nike sweatshirt as she posed seductively.
She gave a picture perfect profile shot of her curvaceous posterior and also revealed her bare midriff.
She graced the cover in an orange tank top that showcased her toned arms and flashed the powerful legs that have lunged Serena up and down the tennis courts throughout her successful career.
‘I have so many people that write me just to say, “You can do it, or thank you, or you’re an inspiration.” and I choose to focus on that,’ she said in an Instagram video.
Serena added: ‘You know, for each negative comment, I get hundreds of thousands of positive comments and so, I feel like they want me to win.’
