Genie Bouchard and Sloane Stephens are tennis players chosen for the 2018 edition of the SI Swimsuit Issue. The sexy photoshoot was performed by photographer James Macari, in Aruba.
The 23-year-old Bouchard is experienced in this type of posing, as she was also featured in the 2017 SI Swimsuit Issue, alongside Caroline Wozniacki and Serena Williams, so this year she confidently told the photographer to “go for it”.
The Canadian posed in several very revealing black swimsuits and also wore some strange white structure, that is like a topless shirt, if that makes sense.
SI Swimsuit debutante Stephens said she was nervous before the shoot, but then absolutely relaxed and we can definitely see that the US Open champion felt comfortable showing her curves on the beach.
Stephens was ecstatic and honored when Sports Illustrated invited her to be a part of this famous bikini editorial, joining a number of fellow WTA stars, such as Ana Ivanovic, Maria Kirilenko, Daniela Hantuchova, and the already-mentioned Wozniacki and Williams.
“I’ve always loved the beauty of the SI Swimsuit Issue and thought it would be incredible to one day be a part of it. I honestly never thought I’d have the opportunity,” the American said.
