Serena Williams, the American tennis legend, was at the focus of a new Sports Illustrated issue, which features an editorial that pictures the athlete on the Turks and Caicos beach.

Throughout the shots, she poses in different swimsuits, which show off her muscular physique. The editorial follows Williams' Australian Open win, which saw her face off with Mirjana Lucic-Baroni and her sister Venus. The shots were lensed by Emmanuelle Hauguel, a professional fashion and beauty photographer who's based out of Paris.

Swimsuits modeled by the tennis star come from a variety of designers, including Onia, American Apparel, Indah, Swim Like A Mermaid and Meg Liz Swimwear. In a number of other images, Williams poses topless with her hands placed strategically.
