Tennis champion Serena Williams is the cover star of the latest issue of Glamour magazine. For the cover shot she is styled in a white Wolford one-piece and an Off White Virgil Abloh jacket and she looks as fierce as ever.
In another shot in the magazine Serena looks absolutely stunning in a Burberry dress while rocking a Fleur du Mal bodysuit and the Azzedine Alaia belt in another photo.

On if tennis is still fun: Yes! When I first started really playing, in ’98, I was super excited to see all the people I grew up watching. … I loved Monica Seles, Steffi Graf, and Pete Sampras. … Now it is different yet somehow more exciting. Everything now is a bonus.
On being called the world’s greatest athlete: Oh my gosh, I don’t know. That’s so hard to say. I try to be the best that I can be every day. I have bad days. I had a bad day the other day. I hit for only, like, 30 minutes, and I stormed off the court. But that was the best I could do on that day. So am I the greatest? I don’t know. I’m the greatest that I can be.
On rumours Drake distracted her at the U.S Open: No. I don’t think that was fair. I’m the one who’s playing, who’s making mistakes or making winners. I’m not one to blame anyone else for anything. And I don’t think anyone else should either. I played a really good opponent that day. And I wasn’t at my best.
On having kids: Yeah. I definitely want to have kids one day. That’s something I’ve always wanted since as long as I could remember. And the older I get, the more I’m like, “I’m too young!” [Laughs.]
On the legacy she wants to leave: I never thought about leaving a tennis legacy. I always thought about leaving a legacy of fulfillment, living out your dreams, and giving back. I’m proud to have opened [two]schools in Africa and one in Jamaica [through the Serena Williams Fund and its partners]. I was given a lot. I was given two parents. That’s already starting above a lot of kids. And then I was given the opportunity to play tennis and parents who supported that. I feel I can give back.
