Tennis super star Serena Williams is the cover girl for New York Magazine's Fashion Issue and her stunning photo shoot leaves us absolutely speechless.
Williams stuns in black for photographer Norman Jean Roy and opens up about racism and her future in fashion with writer Kerry Howley.
And of course she discussed tennis. Williams will be competing to win the Grand Slam later this month and could become the first player to win all four major tennis titles in one calendar year since Steffi Graf in 1988.
“I have to go into New York thinking, ‘Listen, I want to win the US Open. I want to defend my title,’” she told Howley. “Hopefully, people will be cheering me on to, like, push me over the edge, give me that extra strength I need to go for this historic moment.”
