Professional tennis player Serena Williams takes her clothes off, striking nude pose for ESPN The Magazine's first-ever "Body Issue". Her shot for the publication sees her covering her breasts with her right hand while strategically crossing her legs to hide her private part from the lens.

Serena is one of the six athletes picked out to be featured on six different covers of ESPN magazine. The five other chosen sport stars are martial artist Gina Carano, NASCAR driver Carl Edwards, triathlete Sarah Reinertsen, Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, and Dwight Howard of the NBA's Orlando Magic.

Those athletes are parts of ESPN magazine's "Bodies We Want" section, which editor-in-chief Gary Belsky described during a recent conference call as "essentially our version of the best bodies in sports." The section will feature top athletes either posing naked with their private parts strategically covered or with minimal clothing. Besides, there will be another section dubbed "Exposure," for which some famous figures in sport will pose in their birthday suits.

USA Today has a list of the athletes that will be posing in ESPN The Magazine's "Body Issue", which will hit the newsstands this Friday, October 9. Meanwhile, photos of Serena, Gina, Carl, Sarah, Adrian, and Dwight are available to be seen at Celebrity Mania.

Legions of males would do anything She wanted. She could rule the world if She realized how much power She has. She can do anything She wants - be grateful that She chose to share Her incredible beauty.

Celebrities should learn to be decent. They are role models and should enthrone morality. Am really dissappointed.

I never knew you were morally bankrupt and irresponsible to this magnitude .SERENA,you are a big disappointment and disgrace to your fans globally .I cease to be your fan.By expoing your God given body publicly,you have fallen from grace to grass unless you repent and accept JESUS CHRIST as your lord and personal saviour.
