Venus & Serena Williams Cover 'New York Times Magazine'

Venus and Serena Williams show off their killer sculpted bodies on the cover of The New York Times Magazine.

Here’s what the tennis star sisters had to share with the mag:

Venus, on what she calls the best shot of her career: “I did a play that I normally don’t do. Something moved my body. The next thing I know, I’ve left. I don’t remember making my body move. I’m just hitting the shot. Now, I have a great one-handed backhand volley. But I hit it two-handed! I don’t know what happened. It was like watching myself from above when that happened, and like I feel like, this is the best shot of my whole life.”

Serena, on being taunted with racial slurs back in 2001 at Indian Wells: “If you can boo a teenager, and you can be white and 60 years old, you know what? I’m cool on you. I can understand maybe if they were 20, 15. At Indian Wells, everybody goes there when they’re retired. It’s like Palm Beach. I thought, people like Martin Luther King Jr. boycotted things. And this is nothing on that level. Look at Muhammad Ali, he didn’t even play, he went to jail because he didn’t want to go to war. The least I can do is stand up for my people and not go there. That’s the very least I can do. It’s not even that hard of a decision. I get a vacation on those two weeks. It’s like the easiest decision of my career. They can penalize me to death, I’m never going back.”

Serena, on being called out on the court: “Every year at the Open something happens. Like last year I got a point penalty because of a grunt. Meanwhile, I can name five girls who grunt way louder than I do, and the umpire didn’t even give them a warning. And then I had the ball called out that was this far in. It’s always something.”

FYI: Venus is wearing the “Flutter” skirt and “Perfect Set” bra from her EleVen collection.
