Serena keep doing what you do. I'm just waiting to see you return to Cincinnati for the ATP so that I can have the chance to gaze upon the true beauty that you are and when you are tired of those other guys look ME up!!!!
I DO NOT SEE WHAT THE BIG DEAL IS SHE HAS JUST AS MUCH ON AS THE WOMEN DO IN THE UNDERWARE SECTIONS OF THE MAGAZINES AND SHOPING ADDS SO WHAT IS THE BIG FUSS IT'S NOT LIKE SHE WAS NUDE SHE WAS EVEN BEHIND THE SHER CURTIN SO WHY NOT JUST THE WOMAN ALONE
For people that will get their knickers in a bunch about how she's in "unacceptable clothing..."
Psssst. Here's a trick: Pretend it's a bikini. Imagine that!
this lady is so good that why is every one looking down on her,,she is good in what she dose for the sport,,so if she wants to do this then let it be,,,what about tiger woods,,he cheated on his wife,,well this is not the same,,so she can do what she likes to do,,this is a FREE country,,the last time i knew of,,
Who gives a shit?
Serena looks even greater here than on the court
I don't get it shes not showing anything that u don't see everyday on commercials she is an attractive woman and shes got it so flaunt it!!
I really don't get it! People can honor freaks like Lady Gaga, and granted 95% of her whole display is just that--display and all for cash and fame. An actual human being with brains, beauty, and charisma takes the stage and the whole world has something to say about it. Serena is clothed, behind a veil of some sort, and even though i'm female and not gay, i can totally appreciate the whole picture. This woman works HARD for a living. Business minded, talented, and georgous.Her picture leaves MUCH to the imagination. you would see more in Playboy. Obviously this is a peek at her, but also understand that this woman has morals, unlike multitudes of others... beyonce,lady gaga, madonna....sherena isnt even in that cruddy class as far as showing too much.... in my view she wasnt showing too much, and if she ever put the tennis raquet away, look out sports illustrated!!! ~~ thank you
Greg Couch, your article reads like the ramblings of a prude old dowager. Are you sure you aren't gay? As a man, you should be ashamed of yourself for suggesting that Serena put some clothes on. Just look at her picture again and if you wouldn't take a bite out of that apple, you are either A) gay, or B) a filthy racist, so which is it? Look how many people took your poll and look... damn near everyone disagrees with your stupid point of view. I guess if you are going to write fluff articles like this, you should at least try to express a popular view. God you are stupid, your audience is sports fans. What's next, are you going to criticize the Swimsuit Edition? Homo.
She needs to stick with tennis. That is not a good figure. Can you imagine that in Playboy?
Quite large below the waist, nothing above.
Its a privilege to know the other side of every1, it shows that we are all human and knowing this side of Serena reveals that she's even more prettier than we see or have known her to be. This definitely makes her more desirous by people that have always seen her as a Tomboy.
there is nothing wrong or over revealing about this photo u people just want to tear people down im sure most of u got your own photos buck naked in your cell phone that you sent to your boyfriends or girlfriends all i gotta say is do yo thing lil momma and all you fuckin haters stop hating
all these other females takin their clothes of for money and she gets slammed for a bullshit ass picture!?!?? hypocrite or not come on now, get off her raquet!...
AWESOME PIC...SHE ROCKS IT!!! BEAUTY TO BEHOLD & A BODY TO WORSHIP!!!
Wait.... Where's the lingerie? All I see is a silhouette behind drapes. Nothing shows but Serena's beautiful shadow. A shadow, people??? REALLY??? Folks need to lighten up, for real.
I find it interesting that when a black celebrity shows her body, it's "outrageous" and they're labeled the pit of the earth! Lady Gaga just appeared on "American Idol" (which is a family watched show) with nothing on but a bra and what appeared to be bikini underwear. She even stratled her legs on the piano to show off the silver streak which ran the length of her vagina. And let's not forget the infamous Victoria Secret commercials!!! I could go on and on, but will close with "God Bless America, I mean REALLY Bless America..............!
Woooo. She is bad! Beautiful picture. That is pure art. If she was a white French lady, people would call her a genius, a trendsetter...
MS. WILLIAMS , PLEASE DO YOU , IT'S THE BEAUTY AND THE BOOTY , THAT SCARES
THEM.. STAY REAL AND BE REAL .... LOVE YA .
ONE OF YOUR BIGGEST FANS... IF YOU PEEP THIS HOLLA AT A YOUR BOI :}
Give me a break ,What is wrong with this picture ? NOTHING U cant see anything u c more than that on tv Some people need to grow freaking up. nothing else to bitch about try oil prices. GET A LIFE ALL U CRY BABIES
I have to wonder if this Greg Couch doesn't like beauty and possibly woman too? I guess to each his own. Serena don't let them break you down girl!
I want some
I wish I was a jockey,
I'd ride that azz all the way
to a Triple Crown!
She's hot and she confident. Besides, I see more nudity on the NYC Subway and in Central Park.
Do that luv people get judged every day. It's only opinions and most of them doesn't really matter cause at the end of the day you are still the beautiful person you are and most of them don't sign you checks so who cares what they think.
I think she is one of the sexiest woman in sports. Not only that, she has turned herself into a sex symbol. I love the fact that she has the confidents to show her sexy side. Not only that, she is wonderful to look at! You go girl!!
Great body.... and hot buns!
SERENA, I WOULD DRINK YOUR BATH WATER!!!!
My first point is, Victoria Secret Ads are more over the line and racy than ever, they are shown during prime time TV when the whole family is at home and leave nothing to the imagination. The ads are to invoke thoughts that make the female consumer say within "I will feel and look good, sexy, hot for myself, my husband or my man, if I buy something from VS right now or tomorrow!" and the male consumer think and imagine " I would like to see or my wife or woman in something like that." There, is no one in the media saying anything in opposition to the Victoria Secret ads and its negative affects on the viewing audience nor society as a whole. My second point is this, Serena very intelligent, in great shape, is a beautiful woman of color and does have good common sense and good judgment. My third point is this; she is standing behind a curtain. You would have to be looking very hard to bring into focus something that is not there, but in one's own imagination. Finally, it seems, that lingerie on Serena from a competing company has tripped some silent alarm the has mobilized the media into action to safe guard our public from thinking wrong thoughts. Also, to expose how racy women might be thought of should they buy lingerie (and stand behind a curtain) from a competing company and not Victoria Secret (they never use curtains) who has nothing to hide .
Thanks baby doll you sweet as they come. Should left the pics on the site for the whole world to see. Very nice. Ive always knew you were hot.
It's awesome!!!! I like the fact that you decide the direction of your career! You represent women well and the picture is tastefully done! Kudoos to you Ms. Williams.
Serena is a grown woman, and there"s nothing wrong with her showing off that lovely bod! You go girl!!
Your Beautiful On and Off The Court Kept Doing You !!!!
CLAP YOUR HANDS THE GIRL IS BAD BAD. THE ONES HO HATE JUST CANNOT TAKE A PIC LIKE HERS. JUST HATERS. BUT THE IS BAD LORD I NEED A TOUCH.
I see why dude was stalking her like that!!! I know alot of y'all like y'all women bone skinny with little rear ends but here in the south we like em just like that... Thick as a bowl of cold grits!!! Ooooohhhh Weeeeeee!!!! Serena, take my money, my house, and my car... #InMyJodeciVoice
"Someone must have gotten to her and suggested something about common sense and hypocrisy," wrote Greg Couch of The Sporting News.
I see it differently. I think the picture is strong and beautiful, just like those new commercials say. What's Serena supposed to do, let the creepy guys win? Dress like Mary Todd Lincoln for the rest of her life? She can't put on a sexy outfit anymore because of one crazed man? If that's going to be the case, she might as well stop tweeting since her accused stalker used that as a tool in his illegal activities. No more revealing outfits; think of how some people might respond! Hell, she might as well stop playing tennis because that's how the stalker found her in the first place.
Serena, Serena, please put up some more. We love you for your tennis and your looks. Please avail those pics asap. No image lost here, lots gained, please hook us up.
hey Serena to hell with what anybody say you are a beautiful black queen, if anyone gets mad at you cause of a sexy picture of you then they either a black woman that's jealous a white woman that's jealous and raciest are they just the plane old white America wanna bring a black person that has millions and killing them in they own created sport down. cause black men love you and some that's white love you to but if molly sirus posed naked on the enter net they will glorify the hell out of that you keep doing what makes you feel good baby girl and f- the worlds opinion put the dam pic back up
Serena Marry Me, and I'll protect you from the crazies who can't appreciate your beauty.
Go for for it baby girl, them old foogies just can't handle real beauty, and the perverts need to be locked up (Timberlake June Form North Carolina)
I am not a fan of Serena but she is beautiful and needs to be able to express herself. I am happy for her and hope she is back on the court soon, but I don't want her to beat everyone. lol
You Go SERENA
We pass out free condoms, teaches sex education in school, and everyone is having sex these days....Who is offendede by this mostly....Just the ones who doesn't have a body like hers. The grown ups...lol.
Despite what other people do you should continue to love your life and do what makes you happy! It is not her fault that some whacko out there cannot handle his sick psycho desires to be close to her! Live your life for yourself and do not let anyone change it. She should do more!
ALL I CAN SAY IS THIS SERENA IS HER OW WOMAN AN THE ONLY PERSON SHE NEEDS TO ANSWER TO IS HER GOD, HERSELF AND HER FAMILY.
THERE ARE SO MANY TMES THAT I HAVE SEEN WOMEN WHO LOOK LIKE SKINNED SNAKES IN A BATHING SUIT WHO THINKS THEY LOOK GOOD???!!!
WELL SERENA IS NOT ONE OF THEM SHE WORKS HARD NOT ONLY TO KEEP THE SHAPE SHE HAS BUT THE ABILITY TO PERFORM IN HER WORK TENNIS.
IF WE DID NOT HAVE TWITTER, FACEBOOK , MYSPACE AND REALITY TV WOULD WE SEE THIS PHOTO SHOOT??? THE ANSEWER IS NO!!!
IF REALIZE THAT SOME ONE NEEDS TO BECAREFUL WHAT THEY PUT ON THE WEB AN YES WITH THIS SICK PERSON FOLLWING HER SHE DOES NEED TO WATCH IT.
I ONLY WISH THAT BACK IN MY DAY THAT I WOULD HAVE TAKEN BETTER CARE OF MY BODY AS SHE HAS THEN I WOULD NOT BE IN THE MEDICAL CONDITON I AM IN NOW WITH PROBLEMS THEY COULD TAKE MY LIFE AWAY.
THEY SAY THAT IT IS NEVER TO LATE TOO MAKE A CHANGE AN IN A FEW MONTHS THAT WILL HAPPEN SO KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK SERENA GOD WILL ALWAYS BE WITH YOU. SAVANA SOMEONE YOU DON'T KNOW BUT HAS A GREAT RESPECT.
That's the problem. She doesn't have the right stuff to flaunt. The photo is in bad taste and shows poor judgement...once again.
I don't like the pic
...she needs to stick to tennis.
like the commercial of old ..." if you've got it, flaunt it" ..... Serena has enough to "flaunt it" and to be proud of it .... for those who find this "offensive" -- get over it.
Serena Williams is HOT!! There's nothing wrong with her being comfortable enough to pose in front of a camera and have it in a magazine or on her twitter page. You can't find a celebrity that hasn't taken a sexy photo. Don't judge her just because some perverts take it too far, and tennis is supposed to be all stuffed shirts and long skirts. Way to go Serena!!!
This would not have even made news in Europe. What a bunch of snobs the complainers are. Give her a break.
I don't like it ...her shape is not one that I find sexy!
Open any Vogue Magazine and there are pictures on almost any page far more revealing than this one. This picture has nothing to do with stalking. Stalking has to do with some idiot who needs to be locked up.
I've always enjoyed her terrific tennis style and her natural beauty to go with it.
Her picture is definitely in good taste. Respectfully, Jerry Porter
If it weren't for the stalking thing, my answer would've been "it's great" but with that being in the forefront of her life recently, it seems in poor taste to post such a suggestive picture. It really does send a terrible mixed message. As a woman, if feel comfortable arguing that if she doesn't want that kind of attention, she shouldn't put herself out there as a sex symbol, and instead focus on her athletics.
From this photo, Serena (and her whole, super fit body) is so much more beautiful than I ever knew...I guess I always saw her as an amazing female athlete...But now I know she is really awesome in many other ways....
