SERENA WILLIAMS has bared all in a cheeky photo shoot for American magazine Harper’s Bazaar.
Tennis legend Williams is currently trying to win the eighth Wimbledon singles title of her illustrious career having reached the semi-finals.
And the 37-year-old was happy to pose in a dazzling series of snaps for the cover of the US style-bible publication.
Williams, for so long an outspoken champion of equality, modelled in a gold dress which flashed her legs – and in one pic her naked backside.
The whole series of pictures were published without being re-touched by computer programs, with the feature being one titled “The Naked Truth”.
She is portrayed in the latest edition of Harper’s Bazaar which was released in America this morning.
On the other side of the Atlantic, Williams was on court against fellow American Alison Riske battling it out in a tense quarter-final on Centre Court.
Williams eventually came through the winner after three tough sets, and now faces the unseeded Barbora Strycova in the last-four on Thursday looking for a place in another final.
The superstar, with 37 Grand Slam titles to her name, is also trying to win in the Mixed Doubles this year having teamed up with Andy Murray.
And after a year blighted by injuries through the first half of the season, she says she is starting to finally feel as though she is approaching the peak of her fitness.
Serena said: “I haven’t had a tremendous amount of time to prepare for this.
“But, you know, like I said in the beginning of this tournament, each and every match for me has to count as, like, five or ten matches because I have not played a lot.
