Serena Williams is showing off her hot body for Essence magazine. The tennis champ is the cover girl for the mag’s annual body issue … and there’s no wondering why.
Serena showed off her gorgeous gams and arms in curve hugging Herve Leger gowns and cute one-piece swimsuits.
Now 31, Williams is still a force to be reckoned with on the tennis court, but two years ago she was fighting for her life after suffering from a pulmonary embolism. Now, she tells Essence that she’s healthier than ever. “I feel lighter, I feel healthier, and even though I’m 31 — which really isn’t old, but for an athlete, particularly a tennis player, it’s old — I promise you, my body has never felt better. Considering how much I’ve played and how much I’ve done, I feel fine. I’m strong.”
