According to Mail Online, “Behind-the-scenes footage from tennis superstar Wozniacki and UFC queen Rousey’s shoot shows the pair posing for a black and white theme. Rousey — the finest female combat fighter in the world — wore a black bikini for the shoot because she loves ‘being the bad guy’ while Wozniacki donned white because she is ‘nice, little Caroline’.“
Wozniacki was delighted to be associated with the issue. “Every year Sports Illustrated Swimsuit have professional athletes that they pick out to be in the magazine, and I was super excited when I got the call. It’s been something that I’ve been wanting to do for so long. I’m so happy to be here,” he had said.
Rousey, who got herself shot after a recent victory over Cat Zingano in Los Angeles, was quoted as saying: “When I got the call about the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, I can’t remember the last time I got that excited about a photoshoot. The theme for this shoot was black and white so of course I’m the black and nice little Caroline has the white.
“We really got to kind of play that up. I love being the bad guy.”
