"It’s important to look in the mirror and say I love myself" are the words of wisdom from the world No.1 Serena Williams for her feature in the July 2013 "Body Issue" of the ESSENCE magazine.
The 31-year-old tennis star graces the cover in a blue ombre Carmen Marc Valvo swimsuit alongside the message "Love Your Body!". Serena also tells the story about her pulmonary embolism and how she learned to handle the attention her curves receive.
It was a very tough match today, but it's good for me because, I don't know, but it's very good. I am exhausted.
