  • tiralo

    She is so fabulous! A great role model of female empowerment! Feeling great in your own skin!! Go Girl!!

  • blondie

    The camera loves you!

    I guess movies and a film career
    might be next.

    I love the curves.
    I love the smile.

    Lovely body.
    I see why the men all love you.

  • Why?

    I don’t know why she had to do this. She’s a great athlete, but her body could be a lot better if she slimmed down some. I think she’s a little too thick and she does not have pretty feet.

  • Shemp lugosi

    That picture is so airbrushed and altered. If you look at pictures of her on the tennis court, she’s got the physique of a man, certainly bigger arms than most of the men on the tour. I admire Venus much more because she has remained slim, doesn’t have huge arm muscles and can still win the majors.

  • kirsten

    fit, healthy and hot

  • wow

    Well to me she looks perfect, lovely shiny black skin, sexy legs, wonderful.

  • this family is so fubar

    Oh yuck – tubby checkers!

  • Neorules2112

    and Gross

  • RobN

    That’s some serious photoshopping going on.

  • chelleebean

    You bunch of haters!! Jealousy gets you NOWHERE. If she were some skinny ass white girl with no shape what-so-ever all of your haters would be hating all over again. Just don’t HATE….

  • Yuck

    Even with the airbrushing and a fake smile, she’s still a dog. Gina Carano would have made a better covergirl.

  • janelle

    Her skin is beautiful. All skin colors are beautiful. It’s terrible to say she is so dark.

  • Rhonda

    Is this supposed to be like SI, are men gonna run right out and buy that magazine? I don’t think so.:(

  • me

    Work it girl!!

  • Kymble

    What’s with all the criticism?
    No, she isn’t a model, but she never said she was.
    Serena Williams is a tennis pro, not a model who’s underweight.
    No she’s not a twig, but she’s no cow.
    She doesn’t have fat, she has MUSCLE!
    And the fact that she was brave enough to be NUDE on the cover of a magazine deffinatley says something! Don’t you think?

    AND did someone honestly say she doesn’t have pretty feet?
    1. This isn’t a pageant, therefore she doesn’t have to have “pretty feet”
    2. Who the hell goes around telling people they have pretty feet?!
    (certainly not me)

    Anyways, Serena is beautiful black woman with CURVES and MUSCLE who isn’t afraid to show it.


  • baker man

    you’re an idiot

  • All Women Stalker

    All muscle and all shine. This is a great cover!


  • Mr. Mario

    I think she’s hot. I don’t like skinny girls anyway. I think Serena’s lines are nearly perfect on that photograph.

  • asdf


  • pam

    Yuck, don’t like big black women..

  • Brandon

    Serena deserves the cover because she is the No. 1 female tennis player in the world. And let’s face it, there is practically no one to follow in her footsteps in America much less beat her. The Williams sisters are it. So, we should support her for what she does for her sport and for representing this country. And to the ignorant person who said she is “too dark,” don’t be jealous. It is such an ugly trait. The fairer and downright ghostly people in this country pay, spray on and sit out in the sun getting cancer to get close to what she’s got naturally.

  • jared fan

    So not cool! My view of her has just gone down even more!! SOOooooo unnecessary!! If these women could only understand that this sorta stuff does NOT help your image!!

  • oochie wawaa

    serena move your arms and spread your legs

  • ann

    She has a beautiul body and beautiful skin.

  • WOW!

    Ahhh, the flat ass, pale face, serial killing, pedophile, animal sex white people are on their hating as usual. A monkey? really? then you should be happy since most white people like to engage with sexual activity with monkeys literally. You guys have a fascination with animals. Anyway, Serena looks awesome. Black is beautiful. Now go on the beach and get skin cancer, your lips and ass injected and some extensions in your hair. Pale face whores.

  • Sunshine

    I don’t think that is Serena’s body.

  • salma

    all i said was she’s nothing more than just fu*kable and that’s out of moderation

  • scisan60

    The body is athletic for sure…if you are into women like that…but the double whammy of large muscles and butter face dont do it for me…DENIED

  • disgusting

    @ilovemykittyb: Don’t monkey’s have blue eyes????

  • Janeth

    This has nothing to do with “white people” this has to do with what people find “attractive” I personally don’t think she’s beautiful but she isn’t ugly like some people on here are saying. I just don’t think she is an attractive woman! too each his own right!? Some people just talk before thinking…. If your confident show it off girl I am pretty sure a lot of other men find your gorg!!! =]

  • Bruce Bruce

    Man I love Serena…perfect cover!

  • Star Jones

    baaaaaad idea……..

  • KarineE

    I think she is perfection. I can have any man I want but I would totally diss them all and go lesbo for her. She has the healthiest looking body of any woman I’ve ever seen. OMG, her skin is to die for, and that smile. I swear my nipples are so hard right now. That combo of physical strength and feminine curves is something most people can’t wrap their little minds around yet, but that’s ok. More Serena for me. Serena, this model wants to be your love slave, I would lick every inch of your body baby.

  • KarineE

    @Star Jones:

    You are not Star Jones. Star is one of Serena’s good friends and supports everything she does.

  • shüll

    beautiful chocolate

  • love derails

    what beautiful skin. real woman. nice.

  • love derails

    what beautiful skin. real woman. nice.

  • LuckyL

    Gorg, great role model. Ignoring the racists or self-loathers.

  • shüll

    she has a beautiful body and shine your color, because I see here a lot of racist comments, if you do not like is your problem, I can not do anything because even with the human evolution has people still typing the same key that is to think outside is still the same.

    live long freedom of loving care to interact the form of how we humans love the choices I love you all.

  • just talkin

    @disgusting:Yeah and they have white skin and very hairy lol.

  • meme

    Georgeous black skin mama!!!!!

  • jaye

    There is serious photoshopping going on with EVERY celebrity picture. People get hung up on how celebs look in magazines when they don’t even look like that in real life.
    pam @ 10/06/2009 at 4:42 pm

    Yuck, don’t like big black women..

    you like big WHITE women? Is this your way of coming out?? Like a black woman big or otherwise gives a crap what you like. H*ell, white men probably don’t care.

  • Halli

    She looks hot. To the idiot who said, “ew she’s dark”.
    NEWSFLASH Half of the world’ population is “dark”. Dipshit.

  • Gorgeous!

    All of you psychos can pipe down – because you will all go to hell and die slow painful deaths at which I personally plan to LAUGH AT.

    She looks beautiful, has more money than you and has a great guy and a loving family – no drug arrests and hasnt been a Hollywood Hoe.

    Gina Carano – met her many times loooks like a man and talks like one too.

    Go serena! we love you

    Your fan Troy

  • butt shelf

    When she plays tennis it looks as if two midgets are having a wrestling match in the back of her shorts.

  • xxx


    Ah, actually Dinara Safina is the #1 female tennis player in the world but whatever.

  • *** JAMIE ***

    She looks good her. Maybe because all her muscles aren’t showing. She has a very pretty face though.

  • vince

    i concur with ur why.
    she’s got it all,but why pose nude.
