World number one ranking tennis star Serena Williams recently won the award for Sports Illustrated Sportsperson of the Year. She also went on to feature on the cover of the magazine looking hot as ever.
This year was spectacular for me. For @SportsIllustrated to recognize my hard work, my dedication, and my sheer determination gives me hope to continue on and do better. As I always say, it takes a village it's not just one person. This is not just an accomplishment for me, but for my whole team. I am beyond honored. I love you guys! 2016? #letsdoit âÂ¤ï¸ÂðÂÂÂ
The multiple Grand Slam winner posted a picture of her on the magazine on her instagram account.
The United States player also posted another picture - this one from during the shoot - on her instagram page.
Serena is also aiming for a calendar grand slam but is not pressurized by it.
