Serena Williams poses nude for ESPN's "Body Issue"

Serena Williams poses nude for ESPN The Magazine’s first

Serena Williams seems to be celebrating her freshly regained No.1 ranking by posing nude for ESPN The Magazine’s first "Body Issue".

As our faithful reader Teerin shares, athletes will take their clothes off for the "Body Issue" annually. This year, the only women’s tennis player featured, among six athletes, is Serena Williams.

The issue of the magazine will hit news stands on October 9.

Reminder: Two years ago Serena got nude for Jane magazine, when she was photographed from a different perspective.

    My Good! Photoshop makes miracles!!! rsrs
    I've seen pictures of Serena on the beach, this year, and trust me: she DOESN'T look like that AT ALL… lol

    Okay, so I've seen a couple of other covers and they're not really "nude". I mean, the girls are just topless and the guys are just shirtless. I don't think they should use the word "nude" if it's still gonna be like that inside. :P

    By the way Maria lost. Funny how she couldn't move her legs! But Peng played great as well, despite being dead tired Maria did try to fight a bit 2-5 down in the second set, served to stay alive at 4-5 but couldn't do it. I'm not that sad, there's a lot of positive things to take from this. And she's finally getting her season off, she even smiled after leaving the court (and never called for Michael to come down during the match, it was obvious the loss wasn't painful or anything). Since she didn't care, why should her fans? :D Have a good off season Maria!

    Teerin, haha I've noticed that. Correct me if I'm wrong, but Serena is the nudest of them all. :P

    Just seconds ago I posted about Maria's loss.

  4. Teerin

    Yes, she's the nudest apparently. But of course we now Rena, she's like the most confident woman ever. :P

    Serena disgusts me just like that, but nude just makes me want to throw up!!

    Photoshop makes wonders as Bianca says.

    Ok, you guys have got to stop with such harsh language- these days we have to be more ethnically tolerant, just because you like your chocolates 'white', doesn't mean everyone does. I'm not a fan of Serena, but there are worse out there. Obviously she has to have appealed to someone, right? After all why would she have dominated the cover?

    Apparently, Americans don't have a problem with her, so I don't see why you should either.

  7. Marija

    I know many people don't like Serena's looks, but she can be proud of the fact that she certainly always leaves an impression (good or bad) with her curves.

    Zuleika your a little out of line. No one has been racist here? And i think Serena is a good role model for many girls, proving you dont have to be stick thin and be a tennis star/model.

  9. Zuleika

    I'm sorry I offended you. But unfortunately there are larger implications for racism which are not necessarily restricted to 'disgust' and 'making me sick' comments, however distasteful they may sound. Racism is a much more stronger accusation than a reality check that we do live in a multicultural world and must embrace different ethnicities and their diverse looks.

    Marija, I agree with your pro-'curve' comments.

  10. bb

    Zuleika…I live in a multi-cultral society and interact with all races. I am the least racist person out there and promote other ethnicites and beliefs. In fact I LOVE Venus and Black. disgust can apply to so much more than JUST racism. You are accusing me of being racist, which is completly uncessery and disrespectful. So if I say I hate Ana Ivanovic, that means I am racist against white people and Serbians? Your comments, as Jacob mentioned are out of line!

  11. Teerin

    I don't see how any of us are being racist here. :P I mean, they just don't prefer Serena. I'm pretty sure most people would have liked it if someone like Halle Berry was on the cover. I'm not saying Serena doesn't deserve to be in the cover. But yeah, everyone is entitled to their own opinions. :D

    Haha, Halle Berry.

  12. jacob appleton

    bb is right. just because people have mentioned their thoughts of "digusting" does not mean they are racist. your reading a little to much into what people have said. if people were racist i think they would say a little more than that.

  13. Zuleika

    Ok, it seems as though my last comment was unacknowledged, I would love to apologise for the hurt I have caused with regards to the accusations of 'racism', only I CAN'T BECAUSE I DID NOT ACCUSE NOR IMPLY THAT YOU WERE RACISTS. THERE'S A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN RACISM AND ETHNIC TOLERANCE, I'm sorry you couldn't tell the difference.

  14. Zuleika

    You're telling me, I'm 'reading a little to much into what people have said', but all I ever said was to tone down the harsh language, which is fair to say, and if anything you're reading too much into what that comment implied.

  15. Marija Post author

    Ok, Zuleika apparently wanted us to be more tolerant, accept that there are different people, and that we should not boldly say that someone is horrible or whatever just because we don't like them or something about them.

    There was a misunderstanding here on all sides, it seems to me.

    So you are saying it is ok with harsh language against someone "white" but not against an African-American? Because we have to be ethnically tolerant? That view is very patronizing against African-Americans in my opinion. I agree some comments where not very tasteful and a bit harsh, but not because of Serenas skin colour. It would have been equally harsh if it was Sharapova or Zheng Jie.

    Firstly I did not implicate anything of such sort, I find that it's very unoriginal to extend the generalisations of others on this blog, don't you? I don't you who you are or what you do, but I do know that you must live on another planet, if you don't understand the concept of 'Silent racism', it's all around us and even if it wasn't as evident in the responses here, I don't think you need to google Serena or Venus Williams to know that even though they're probably the best female tennis players of all time, their fan popularity and overall response is pale in contrast to underachievers like Ana Ivanovic or even Wozniacki.

    Don't be so naiive, 'it is patronising', if my comment is patronising, then the whole of America must be racist, and we all know that it is not.

    It's not like you've never heard of racism against Venus or Serena, so don't act like that was an out-of-this-world completely ridiculous statement, because it isn't and people on here need to be sensitive to that.

    People on this site, need to realise that in the 21st century, you can't just say you're with such backward notions such as 'I live in a multi-cultral society and interact with all races. I am the least racist person out there and promote other ethnicites and beliefs. In fact I LOVE Venus and Black' just after spitting out 'Serena disgusts me just like that, but nude just makes me want to throw up!!

    I DID NOT IMPLY YOU WERE A RACIST, FOR THE LAST TIME. But funny you should automatically assume that it's what I implied, a guilty mind, perhaps?

    I don't believe you are a racist, because racism would entail so much more than just 'disgusting' comments, I'm sure. But as I said earlier, you must tone down on the harsh language, it is disgusting in nature and is not a very nice comment to make overall, and to some very conservative people, it may scream racism.

    Thus I certainly hope I misunderstood you.

    I've been reading all the comments posted so far,I think everyone is entitled to their opinion,all I can say is that no one of you guys wants to backdown on the battle o words,just so u'd all know,she's been paid for what she did,your opinion and mine don't count,she's a star.

    for d records I think 'disgust'cud mean because she has this masculine physique,of which if she had a body like beyonce,we'd all appreciate what she's done

    I almost barfed when I first saw the cover. How sick and ugly is this? I do NOT find this appealing. I rather look at poop in a toilet.
