Serena Williams is on a Mission to Make Tennis History | Covers New York Magazine’s Latest Issue



CMAm5AvUsAAqIKvSerena Williams is the best women’s tennis player in the world and the 33-year-old is on a mission to make tennis history.

Photographed by Norman Jean Roy, Serena is featured in the latest issue of New York Magazine giving life with fierce poses and a gorgeous body-hugging black dress that shows off her curves.

In the magazine she talks about her life goals, her body goals and much more.

Interestingly, she didn’t always want to be a tennis player. She shares in the magazine that she wanted not just to design clothes but to design wedding dresses. Her first love was fashion.

    Champion Serena,

    I doubt we would ever have anyone challenge her record in tennis, Black and Proud, we have come along way as a race and am always inspired by her achievements.

    These pictures strike off a rather masculine side of her, kinda contradicts my own little intrigued mind of a woman. I am one of those guys whose mind instantly designs images of a slim model like woman in my head once the thought of a woman beckons.

    Shame on me, i like serena as a champion but i would date Sharapova all day.

      Bye Felix!

      She doesn’t need you to be attracted to her. She’s got 21 grand slams and a hot french-greek man to keep her warm!

      The only person that could look at those pictures and think masculine is a man, or a woman that has trouble dealing with powerful and strong women. You can be feminine and small and dainty and you can be feminine and strong and powerful. Neither is better than the other and neither is more feminine. Men who want to see their women as week and submissive tend have issues with Serena who is exactly the oppsite… She really couldn’t care less. You are so far below her league that she would need a microscope to find you.
