Just weeks after showing off her naked body in ESPN The Magazine’s first "Body Issue", Serena Williams stripped down as "The Athlete" and one of Glamour magazine's Women of the Year.
Billie Jean King explains why Serena was chosen:
When most people would falter, she is able to raise her game a level, and that’s what you look for in champions. I feel confident she will win more major singles titles than my 12. And that makes me very proud.
Serena is now safe to do whatever she wants to, she finished the year ranked No.1, won two Grand Slams and the Sony Ericsson Championships during the 2009 tennis season.
