Serena Williams and Taylor Townsend

Serena Williams has just finished another photo-shoot for Sports Illustrated for its Swimsuit Issue. The highlight for her at the shoot? A thong bikini! It was her first time wearing a thong, and she braved the situation with total confidence.

 

One of these sexy video scenes took place at an outdoor shower. Williams wears a red-hot thong bikini and totally let herself get lost in the moment. “The shower scene was amazing, because I also wanted to do something like that,” she admitted. “I’ve always wanted to let go—let my hair wet, let my face wet and take a supernatural picture that was strong and beautiful at the same time, and I really feel like we were able to achieve that with that shot.”

The American’s baby is due in March 2021, meaning that she was pregnant when she played at the US Open last month where she reached the last four in the women’s doubles event alongside Asia Muhammad.

Townsend won her maiden WTA alongside Muhammad at the ASB Classic in Auckland earlier this season, and beat Simona Halep on her way to the fourth round at Flushing Meadows in 2019.

“Life has a funny way of putting you exactly where you are supposed to be. I’m so excited to embark on the journey of motherhood,” said Townsend on Twitter.

If she returns to the tour after giving birth, Townsend will join the likes of Serena Williams and Victoria Azarenka in playing on tour after starting a family.

Townsend will also benefit from a protected ranking allowing her to enter main draw events if and when she returns to the tour, a relatively new rule that recently saw Tsvetana Pironkova reach the last eight of the US Open in her first event in three years.
