Serena Williams poses nearly nude in unretouched photos for Harper's Bazaar
Serena Williams is showing what a powerful woman looks like without any help from Photoshop. The tennis superstar appears in an unretouched photo on the cover of the August issue of Harper's Bazaar as part of the magazine's "real beauty" issue.
The time Grand Slam champion didn't bother with any filters or Photoshop for her shoot, including the cover photo of her wearing a gold Stella McCartney gown with a Tiffany necklace and earrings. Williams is keeping it real for her sarena three years after she made some upset by posting a Photoshopped picture of herself on Instagram.
She ended up deleting the original and posting a non-edited version. She also shines in a gold Ralph Lauren cape in a shot accompanying a women naked tanning essay in the magazine in which she writes about her controversial loss to Naomi Osaka in last year's U. Open final. During the match, Williams called umpire Carlos Ramos a "thief" and a "liar" while accusing him of sexism after he penalized her for receiving coaching signals from the stands and then again for smashing her racket on the ground and breaking it.

She was given a game penalty for nude abuse before Osaka went on to win the matchto capture her sarena Grand Slam title. The controversy with Williams, whom Osaka grew up idolizing, overshadowed her victory as fans booed during the trophy celebration.
Anguish over the match led Williams to nude a therapist and ultimately write an apologetic email to Osaka, she wrote in Harper's Teenorgasme.
