Serena Williams goes topless in 2017 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue

Serena Williams is living her best life right now.

Between her Australian Open victory and her engagement to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, she added the cherry on top with a sizzling Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue appearance!

The 35-year-old athlete gave us serious body goals as she rocked several risky swimsuits in front of a tropical background.

Serena teased her SI appearance on Instagram with a cheeky snapshot in which she shows off her curvaceous figure in a neon-blue one piece.

The future Mrs. Ohanian then got bold and went without a top for her other looks. In one photo, she puts her enviable athletic figure on full-display, wearing only a pastel peach string bikini bottom by Onia and a shell necklace. She covers her breasts with one hand.

The tennis legend, who has 23 grand slam titles to her name, also wore a bright red bikini that she donned while posing under a running shower on the beach.

Her future hubby is a lucky man!

This year, the coveted cover went to veteran Kate Upton, marking her third time as an SI covergirl.

A slew of big names, including Hannah Jeter, Chrissy Teigen and Christie Brinkley and her two stunning daughters also appeared in the magazine.
