Serena Williams shows off her athletic body in a sultry poses during Fitness exercise: Serena Williams sports sexy red swimsuit, talks playing ‘nice’ off the court.She might be the feisty tennis pro that few people want to go up against, but Serena Williams says she always plays nice off the court.
“I think of myself as two different people,” Williams, 39, told Fitness magazine in an interview for its May issue. “There’s the Serena Williams that everyone knows: She’s crazy… She can’t make a mistake… And she’s angry and just not nice, to be honest. I’m only that person for three hours a day when I’m on the court. The rest of the time I’m just Serena. I’m the class clown.”
Williams covers the magazine in a sexy red cutout swimsuit, and flaunts her incredible body in several sultry beach-set photos. The powerhouse player, who puts on her game face – and attitude- for every match, said she gets upset when people think she’s mean all the time.
“It’s not the real me,” Williams said. “Even for me, it’s shocking to see. But in another way, it’s kind of cool to know that I have everything together on the court, because I don’t really have my life together personally.”
Despite being the world’s top female tennis player, the brunette beauty still deals with insecurities – especially about her appearance.
“When I was young I thought I should be built more like an athlete -long and lean- not with a womanly figure,” she said.
“But then people my age started coming up to me and saying, ‘I love you because of the way you look.’ That was really motivating. So I learned to be proud of my curves and embrace my large boobs. It’s all about loving who you are and realizing that you’re beautiful.”
The former world No 1 admits to wishing she had a more athletic figure when she was younger but soon learned to love her body.
