Venus Williams Wins At Wimbledon, Poses Nude For ESPN Body Issue [PICS]


Venus Williams ESPN Body Issue 2014

Venus Williams didn’t make our list of the 28 Hottest Women of Wimbledon, but we think the tennis star is still having a good day. For starters, she’s been announced as the first femme athlete to be posing for the 2014 Body Issue of ESPN magazine. The other naked athletes will be announced on Wednesday, but it was smart to go ahead and release Venus’s pic today.

After all, Venus Williams just won her first Wimbledon game of the year. She defeated Maria-Teresa Torro-Flor, who was presumably hindered by carrying around all those hyphens. Of course, Venus has her own problems. As she tells ESPN in the upcoming issue, Venus couldn’t even play tennis while first struggling with Sjogren’s syndrome. That’s an autoimmune disorder that causes white blood cells to attack the glands that produce moisture.

Venus had to give up the game for six months–which is mostly why she’s entering Wimbledon ranked 31st in singles play and 88th in doubles. As you can see, though, Venus is sure looking healthy now. And while she may not be everyone’s idea of a sex symbol, we won’t argue with success. Check out more hot pics of Venus’ hot form right here…
