Serena Williams Gives Us Body Envy In New York Magazine Spread

August 10, 2015  |  

It honestly amazes me when I hear people try to say that Serena Williams is shaped like a man. Bish where? Or as J.K. Rowling so eloquently put it when a troll tried to body shame the Tennis star last month:

Homegirl has a banging physique. And the 33-year-old beauty was able to silence body critics with her recent spread in New York Magazine. Inside, she opened up about her new clothing line, being a trendsetter in the game of tennis and the longevity of her career. Check out some highlights from her interview below.

On wanting to design wedding dresses:

“That was my first real love, but then I was like, Listen. I’m playing professional tennis. I’ll just do athleticwear.”

On the longevity of her career:

“I didn’t think it would last this long,” she said. “But even if it was over, it’s a really long career.”

On her athletic apparel line, EleVen:

“Ten is just another number, but EleVen is a lifestyle.”

“We brought fashion back to tennis. It was great when Chris Evert was around. Tracy Austin had some great designs. But the ’90s was not a good time.”

On her eventual retirement:

“I will finally be able to make some Miami Dolphin games, and make some, uh, better decisions down there with the players.”

On changing the game of Tennis:

“My dad taught us to have early preparation. I notice the other girls have similar preparations to mine, and I’m like, ‘Hmmm … well, you don’t want to admit where you got that from, right?’ ”
