    Morris Chestnut-like. She looks much better than this.

    Nothing against Serena, but that vogue cover is terribly unflattering. Surely they could have made her look a little better than this.

      I agree, I would have loved a more “fashion” dress. but I’m happy all the same.

    Lets put it into perspective, she’s the greatest sportswoman of all time and one of the greatest athletes of all time period. The greatest tennis player of all time, even Baba Federer doesn’t have 19, I repeat 19!! grand-slams.
    The only American I famz as having Nigerian blood. Serena Okemmadu Williams. Ndewo!!!

      Oh no they ain’t. Quite a number of AAs and even black britons take on african names, particulary nigerian names and that is just the case with them too.

      The G.O.A.T in the female category is Steffi Graf by the numbers. You cannot compare the number of grand slams a man has won to the number a woman has won. It’s harder for the men and that’s why their prize money isn’t at par.

      But all the Grand Slams pay equal prize money. Most of the none Grand Slam tournaments like the Indian Wells Open (California) and Ericsson Open (Miami), the two biggest non-Grand Slam tournaments, play a best of three sets for both the men and women, so you can’t make the argument outside of non-Grand Slams. So you’re apparently not entirely correct. It has nothing to do with the pay. So maybe just stick to your argument of it being harder for the man physically and leave it there. Let’s stop comparing women to men when it comes to equity of pay. A man was genetically created to be stronger than the woman, so men already have a physical advantage over women. I really hope you’re a tennis player to know what you’re talking about.

      Dee-USA – Grand Slams do not pay the same prize money. You are stupid for being patronising. I won’t waste my time with you. Nitwit.

      Lol. You are hilarious….and clearly clueless. I don’t think you should waste your time with me either. You should utilize Google and do just a little bit of research. Then you’d know they pay equal prize money. Once again, you better be posting your proof otherwise, to be so certain they do not pay equal pay. But it irks me when people argue emphatically and are clearly wrong.

      You know what, I’ll save you the difficulty it may take you to do your research. Here, thank me later: washingtonpost.com/blogs/on-leadership/wp/2014/09/05/how-womens-tennis-fought-for-equal-pay/

    The colour on her skin worked for me on the cover, so tired of all this light photo shopping. So I like.
