Breaking: Venus and Serena Williams are in really good shape

Busted Racquet

If you didn't know it by now, Venus and Serena Williams are in pretty decent shape. When you have a combined 21 Grand Slam titles, you must be doing something right. And for the Williams sisters, that apparently means spending countless hours hitting the court and gym on a regular basis.

Here's a shocker: Venus and Serena Williams are in really good shape. — New York Times

Earlier this week, Busted Racquet highlighted Serena Williams' physique, after she showed up to the "Late Show with David Letterman" wearing a form-fitting red dress that had Letterman saying things that ... well, here's the actual quote from the show following Williams' entrance.

"I think I saw your eyes almost pop out there," Williams said.

Responded Letterman, "Well, I think so ... That's not the only thing."

It's hard to believe just six months ago people were claiming Serena was "out of shape." The same could be said for sister Venus, who was diagnosed recently with Sjorgen Syndrome, a disease that causes fatigue and joint pain. Needless to say, she hasn't been able to spend hours grinding away on the court recently.

But based on the above cover photo from this week's issue of The New York Times Magazine, it would appear the sisters are in fantastic shape as they prepare to take on the rest of the competition next week at the U.S. Open.
