Serena Williams shows off her curves and her curls on the cover of Vogue‘s April 2015 issue.
The 33-year-old tennis player is joined in the issue by her BFF and tennis rival Caroline Wozniacki. Here is what they had to share with the mag:
Serena on her personality: “On the court, I am fierce! I am mean and I am tough. I am completely opposite off the court. My confidence just isn’t the same. I wish I was more like I am on the court. Nobody would know that I am constantly crying or complaining.”
Caroline on Serena helping her through her breakup: “First she texted, ‘If you don’t pick up, I am going to fly to Monaco.’ And then, ‘If you don’t answer the door, I am going to knock it down.’ So I thought, OK, I better answer the phone. And I am so glad I did. She wasn’t pitying me, like a lot of people were. I mean, it’s not like anyone died. I was in shock, but she was really helpful because she had been through it before. She didn’t sugarcoat it, and she didn’t look down on me. She was really there for me when I needed her the most, and that’s why I think our friendship is so strong now.”
Serena on being friends with her rival: “Let’s just put an end to this myth that women players cannot be friends. We can!”
FYI: Serena is wearing rag & bone on the cover.
