Serena Williams – First Afroamerican Athlete for Vogue

25. March 2015

In 2012 Serena Williams (33) shared the vogue cover with soccer goalkeeper Hope Solo (33) and the swimmer Ryan Lochte (30). However, that was history. Queen Serena covers solo the Vogue April issue. The 19-time Grand Slam winner is the first African-American female athlete on a solo cover of “Vogue”.

In an interview with the magazine Serena Williams talks among other things about her close friendship with the Tennisrivalin Caroline Wozniacki (24), which was also photographed. Serena was there for her friend as her relationship with her fiancรฉ, Rory McIlroy (25) broke. That‘s what I call real Sisterhood.
