Caroline Wozniacki is the latest tennis player to grace the ESPN Body Issue joining the likes of past stars Venus Williams, Tomas Berdych, Agnieszka Radwanska, Stan Warwinka and many more. The Dane took it all off, and was rewarded with a cover shot—fittingly released on the same day as best friend Serena Williams' Vanity Fair feature.

The 26-year-old has had a busy year, on and off the court. Earlier this season, she starred in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue (for the third time) with Williams and Eugenie Bouchard. Wozniacki has yet to win a title in 2017, but has reached three finals (Doha, Dubai and Miami).

For the ESPN issue (which hits newsstands on July 7), she took to the clay rather than the sand:


The former world No. 1 talks to ESPN about her most physical achievements like running the New York City marathon, taking on boxing, and of course, winning 25 WTA titles.

“I was always told that there's no chance that a girl from Denmark can become a world-class tennis player," she said. "We've never had any women in the Top 30. Every time I would say, 'I want to be No. 1 in the world,' people would just laugh at me. But I'll find a way. I don't take no for an answer.”

Currently ranked No. 6, Wozniacki hasn't played since reaching the French Open quarterfinals, but is in action this week in a loaded Eastbourne draw.
