serena-williams-essence

World No. 1 Serena Williams appears on the cover and serves as guest editor of the July issue of ESSENCE magazine.

Williams wears a swimsuit alongside a headline that reads, "Love Your Body!" and a statement from her: "It's important to look in the mirror and say I love myself."

In the cover story of the magazine's Body Issue, the 31-year-old Williams discusses her return from a pulmonary embolism two years ago, explains how she grew to embrace her body type and says she's never felt better. She also shares beauty tips and dishes on what she likes best about her workouts.

The issue hits newsstands on Friday. For more on Williams, visit ESSENCE.com.

Williams has been rolling at the French Open, where she's lost only 10 games through four rounds. She has won a career-high 28 consecutive matches. She faces 2009 champion Svetlana Kuznetsova in the quarterfinals on Tuesday.
