34-Year-old Tennis star Venus Williams has stripped down to pose naked for an ESPN magazine photo shoot.
The five-time Wimbledon champion also revealed intimate details about her struggles with Sjogren's syndrome, an autoimmune disorder that causes white blood cells to attack a person's moisture-producing glands.
'At my worst point, I wasn't able to play
tennis at all,' Just the whole quality of my life was compromised. You are so tired it hurts. You have to accept that you're never going to be 100 percent.'
Ms Williams is featured in the magazine's Body Issue along with 2013 Wimbledon quarter-finalist Tomas Berdych, who posed wearing only a racquet and a smile.
