Serena Williams is bringing new meaning to the phrase “Fun in the Sun.” From competing in the Beijing Olympics to her upcoming Grand Slam tennis tournaments, the 5-foot-9 ½-inch tennis star is heating up this summer both on and off of the court. She hung out with EBONY magazine in Malibu, Calif., for an exclusive cover shoot to discuss dating, the Olympics, and how she keeps her stellar physique in tip-top condition. Offering tips on how she stays fit, Serena discusses indulging in scrumptious salads, which include feta cheese, candied walnuts and strawberries. “It’s too hot in the summer to cook, so I love to grill chicken and fish,” she adds. “I also love to grill vegetables and serve them chilled.” When asked about her romantic link to recording artist Common, Serena had this to say, “I think he’s a great guy. He’s obviously a great artist who is timeless and classic. You can’t beat that. But I have to focus on tennis because that’s my goal in life.” You know Common is your man Serena. I would be screaming that ish from the rooftops...

Serena is absolutely

Serena is absolutely gorgeous. Even I as a totally heterosexual woman have to admit this . Her body is stunning, her skin, her high cheekbones, lips, she has it all. Not too muscular at all but a beautiful example of fitness. Looking at the comments it's sad and hard to believe this is a Black site. Serena is definitely someone the Black community should take pride in. She epitomizes feminine beauty and fitness. I couldn't even get mad with my hubby when he was caught staring mouth ajar. We both had to just admire God's beautiful creation.

[quote comment="108948"]Ms. Michelle, 5'8" and 135 lbs. ...hmmm. must be a reason you're not modeling or acting or something. drop a few more pounds and you can. must be a reason you're not. probably don't have the face for it.[/quote] 5"8" and 135lbs? You may want to eat a sandwich or two. 135lbs means you're probably lacking in ass (unless you're an athlete which I doubt),so it's no wonder you're hatin on Serena!

She a profeesional athlete,

She a profeesional athlete, involved in a sport where the use of arms, and its power is extremely immportant. Of course she has to have muscular arms! Oh yeah, every picture you see on any cover is AIRBRUSHED!!! So stop hating, she is sexier and alot smarter (not even mentioning richer) than most of you critics... so Shhhhhh!

Just because a girl is light skin shes not going to automatically be beautiful. Many black guys as well as other men a women have this perception. IF YOUR UGLY YOUR UGLY AND IF YOUR PRETTY YOUR PRETTY!!!!!!!!!!![/quote] I don't think in this case it's a skin tone issue either, however, i do think it's a matter of our perceptions of beauty. A sista is only considered beautiful if she does not have traditionally (west) african features. The more caucasian her features, regardless of skin tone, the prettier she's considered. This is why Lil kim AND beyonce both got plastic surgery. Two different skin tones, two African noses, two nose jobs. We have no one to blame at this point but ourselves. We rule the fashion/beauty world but we continue to imitate others and they continue to imitate us.

Not to sound tribal, but why not recognize the various hues of blackness...it's all in how you are perceiving it...furthermore, this is the history of the negroe in America...stop running from your existence. White women are placed in the same positions as well or even more so than the African American woman...clearly it's their society (media, publications, entertainment, etc.). Open Call: Sistahs get your lazy fat asses up and work it out. I don't care if you 6'6" and 105...you are a happy meal away from obesity (maybe you need that happy meal with those measurements)...seriously, it's not about skin and the effects in our community...embrace all of our unique appearances and be kind hearted to one another. Period. Love you Rena!!!

air brushed or not serena

air brushed or not serena Williams body is the bizness!!! Her body is sick..At least she didn't go to the plastic surgeons office to buy her booty and breast she is 100% real!!! Unlike that kim slutdashian who gets praised by black men for her fake ass and fake breast with her ugly long horse face of hers with 18-25 pounds of makeup on her face..hell serena could give her some ass and wouldn't miss it!!! You damn right her arms are toned her body suffers on that tennis court she needs to be strong to play against the women she's played against plus her when she serves her famous 130 mile per hour balls that takes a hell of alot of strength to do that.. Serena Williams is an accomplished black women so let's not dog her out.. And its nothing with the pic she took.. Black folks always complaining about so called booty shots pics why should she cover her big round rotund ass when white hoes are buying butt implants like crazy and lost there dann minds because they want there butts to look like hers!!! Even though it doesnt .. Black women need to take more beautiful pics like this to let society know we are shapely and 100% real beautiful and proud of our real asses!!!! Because white folks use to laugh at our asses and shaped bodies now they trying to get some ass threw surgery and its not working!!!! J- ho shouldve never been able to steal the black women's title of ass in the first place when she and all the rest know damn well we black queens can give her some ass and wouldn't miss it!!! So I say go on serena you look HOT HOT HOT!!!!!!!!the pic is very tasteful...

Airbrush controversy or not,

Airbrush controversy or not, you have to admit the slimmed her arms down for the cover. Gotta ask, why? Because she is one muscular chick and for most people muscular, big arms = masculine. Love it or hate it, that's marketing,y'all. I admire her for doing her thing, being an amazing athlete and ditching the train wreck that was her hair and style back in the day, go serena!!
Bekah's picture

the airbrush comment is so

the airbrush comment is so irrelevant. All pictures whatsoever are photoshopped but we al have seen pitures of serena and we know how her body looks?? It looks really tone because she is an athele right?? That is the difference with ashanti whose legs look tone on the promo picture and blue cheddar cheesy on the reality!

I don't get why everyone

I don't get why everyone always knocking this girl. She has a body closest to regular folk like ourselves and yet everyone always talks about her like that. When the skinny chicks up there looking very all anorexic and malnourished we don't say half as much about them. Yeah she has a big booty and broad shoulders so what should she do? Send her legs out alone??? What does she do for a living? She whacks balls at 80 - 120 mph so what do we expect? Thats how she stays PAID... If we act like this what do we expect those other races to do?

@ Ms. Michelle: MR24 was referring to the backside when she/he said "Big Backs Unite!" It may be a southern or Florida thing, but it's what I'm referring to when I call myself a "Phat" chick. So Ima co-sign: Big Backs Unite!

Get it sis...I'd love to start a rebellion against all these weaves and even wigs now that sistas are wearing...we are the only ones that don't love ourselves enough to be ourselves (collectively). Worldwide! Between this and the bleaching (mostly in Africa and the carribbean), we need the Serena's of the world on mag covers!

Her arms do look great, I love cut arms though I do think they airbrushed them down (along with the rest of her). I just wish they woulda picked another angle.
