'Strong is beautiful': Fans are falling for Serena Williams's sexy new magazine cover

Serena Williams’s sleek black catsuit may have made waves at the French Open on Tuesday, but on Wednesday, it’s all about her sexy black leotard, folks.

The tennis champion — who just won her first Grand Slam match since giving birth to daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. last September — is unleashing her fierce mama spirit on the July cover of Harper’s Bazaar U.K. 


Fresh from attending pal Meghan Markle’s royal wedding, Williams strips down to a black one-piece leotard by Norma Kamali in the beachy shoot. Her muscles — that thigh! — are on full display, while a Marina Rinaldi parka and her long curls are effortlessly draped over one shoulder.

Photographer Richard Phibbs also captured Williams in a sporty jumpsuit by Dior paired with lace-up boots custom-made by the fashion house’s designer, Maria Grazia Chiuri. Would you expect anything less from “Queen Serena”?


Unsurprisingly, fans are flipping out over the athlete’s strong and sexy look. With the exception of a troll who dared suggest that Williams — who has won 23 Grand Slam singles titles — should “slim down” by introducing more cardio and diet into her routine, jaws were, in the words of one commenter, dropped.

“Strong is beautiful,” a fan wrote, while others called her a “powerful goddess” and “beautiful black queen.”

“Black beauty in full strength!” read another comment.

“Things you did: THAT,” quipped another.

“Strong and powerful women — we rock this world,” gushed a supporter.

Way to serve it up, SW.
