Fresh off her fourth Wimbledon win, Serena Williams is on top of the tennis world. Now she’s about to pull off her second cover of Harper’s Bazaar magazine. In the feature article, Williams is sporting a super cute bob haircut and a svelte new body. Williams is down to a size 10 from 12. Maybe she had her ear to the ground and heard the comments about her “muscular build…”
“I wanted to get really fit. I wanted to lose some weight. So I’ve been doing Pilates and yoga, trying to lean out my body so I won’t be bulky.”
She also comments on her delayed acceptance of her body:
“I was 23 when I realized that I wasn’t Venus. She’s totally different, I’m super-curvy. I have big boobs and this massive butt. She’s tall and she’s like a model and she fits everything. I was growing up, wanting to be her, wanting to look like her, and I was always fitting in her clothes, but then one day I couldn’t. But it’s fine. Now I’m obviously good, but it’s a weird thing.
She even commented on her relationship with Common:
“His schedule is actually worse than mine, and he didn’t want the responsibility. It’s really tough. Common then began promoting his latest film, heaping enough praise on me so that people assumed we were still on. So I called him and I was like, Why are you saying all this stuff when we’re not together?”
It’s quite simple Serena, he didn’t want to let the bootay go! *sigh* Typical men. Serena looks great and I think she’ll be pulling off another championship win very soon with the US Open around the corner.
