Serena Williams Shows off her Muscular Figure in ......

Serena Williams is showing off her natural physique in a behind-the-scenes photo from her Sports Illustrated Sportsperson of the Year shoot - just one day after fans expressed outrage that her thighs appeared Photoshopped on the magazine's cover.

The tennis star, 34, shared an Instagram image of herself wearing a short white dress as she lies on a ring suspended from the ceiling, captioning the picture: 'I have some fun shots from the Sports Illustrated shoot. I love this one. #deepbreath #GettingReadyForNextYear.'
In the photo, which does not appear to have been retouched, Serena shows off her muscular legs and athletic arms as she hangs effortlessly from the ring.
Her followers called the shot, which has received nearly 30,000 likes in just one hour, 'gorgeous', 'stunning', and 'lovely'.


One person shared: 'I like this better [than] the SI one,' and another fan said: 'Your body is amazing! It's my goal to have muscles like yours!'
The positive remarks differed significantly from some of the comments she received yesterday about her cover image, in which she sits on a gold throne in a black lace leotard.
Meanwhile, another Twitter user noted: 'I don't like that cover photo of Serena Williams on SI because they made her thighs look nonexistent.'

Both Sports Illustrated and Serena shared the cover photo on Instagram on Monday, and while the magazine called it a 'beautiful cover of an amazing athlete', Serena gushed about her amazing year.

'This year was spectacular for me. For Sports Illustrated to recognize my hard work, my dedication, and my sheer determination gives me hope to continue on and do better,' she wrote.
In the feature, Sports Illustrated praises Serena not just for being considered by many to be the best female tennis player of all time, but for making headlines all year long in entertainment, pop culture, fashion, and even politics.




Serena recently flaunted her legs by posing topless for the exclusive 2016 Pirelli Calendar, which saw a change this year as the 43rd edition features some of the world's most inspiring women.
She also appeared in the animated movie Pixels with Martha Stewart and Peter Dinklage, was praised by President Obama for her athleticism, and chased down a cell phone thief and actually got him to give back her phone.
Just days after her Grand Slam dream was crushed by Italian Roberta Vinci in the US Open, Serena debuted her fashion collection at New York Fashion Week as Anna Wintour, Drake, and Kendall Jenner cheered her on.
On Sunday, the star was seen participating in her own Serena Williams Live Ultimate Run South Beach 2015 event in Miami, but jumped into taxi at the 2km mark.
