Wimbledon champion Serena Williams is basking in the glory of the fourth title on the London lawns. Following her 6-3, 6-2 win over Vera Zvonareva Saturday in the women’s final, this week’s Sports Illustrated magazine features Serena on its cover under the headline “Love Her, Hate Her She’s the Best Ever.”
The article was written by L. Jon Wertheim and will be available on newsstands Wednesday at the earliest in the U.S.
Serena has been on the cover of SI at least twice before.
Serena also graces the cover of Harper’s Bazaar magazine which will be available for purchase on July 20.
In the article Serena says, “I was 23 when I realized that I wasn’t Venus. She’s totally different. I’m super curvy. I have big boobs and this massive butt. She’s tall and she’s like a model and she fits everything. I was growing up, wanting to be her, wanting to look like her, and I was always fitting in her clothes, but then one day I couldn’t. But it’s fine. Now I’m obviously good, but it’s a weird thing. . . . To this day, I don’t love my arms. People want more fit arms, but my arms are too fit. But I’m not complaining. They pay my bills.”
Serena also talks about the breakup with boyfriend Common. “His schedule is actually worse than mine,” she told the magazine. “He didn’t want the responsibility. It’s really tough.”
