The tennis star posed naked for ESPN Magazineâ€™s Body Issue, and also revealed new details about her health struggles.
Tennis star Venus Williams has stripped down to pose n*k*d for a magazine photo shoot.
The five-time Wimbledon champion also revealed intimate details about her struggles with Sjogrenâ€™s syndrome, an autoimmune disorder that causes white blood cells to attack a personâ€™s moisture-producing glands.
â€˜At my worst point, I wasnâ€™t able to play tennis at allâ€™, the 34-year-old Florida native told ESPN Magazine. â€˜Just the whole quality of my life was compromised. You are so tired it hurts. You have to accept that youâ€™re never going to be 100 percent.â€™
Ms Williams is featured in the magazineâ€™s Body Issue along with 2013 Wimbledon quarter-finalist Tomas Berdych, who posed wearing only a racquet and a smile.
