Elle Spain’s May edition is traditionally the magazine’s “body” issue, but this time around they’re tossing out their usual playbook.

The magazine unveiled four different covers featuring two-time Grand Slam winner Garbiñe Muguruza alongside gymnast Simone Biles, actress Milena Smith and model Kasia Kruss, representing their new vision of a perfect body—that is, one that is not ‘perfect’ at all, but rather "healthy, strong and diverse".

Muguruza teased the photoshoot and cover story on social media, with an Instagram post showing off a series of outfit changes and poses from what the Spaniard called “one of the most fun photoshoots” she’s done.


“I have never felt that I couldn't do anything I set my mind to. Whether that is being an engineer, athlete or dancer. Maybe that’s because of how my parents educated me and the autonomy they instilled in me,” Muguruza told Elle Spain.

Earlier in the week, Muguruza shared an encouraging update after missing the first part of the clay season due to a shoulder injury: the Spaniard is back on the practice courts preparing for her comeback.


The former world No. 1 has been struggling to get her season up and running, and she’s recorded back-to-back match wins just once this season in Doha. After withdrawing from the Miami Open due to injury, she spent some time in Africa visiting Zimbabwe and Botswana—her “fifth off-season” of the year, she joked on Twitter.

Muguruza, currently No. 9 in the WTA rankings, is next scheduled to compete in the WTA 1000-level Madrid Open, which kicks off on May 1.
