The dead of winter. It's cold, it's dark. It's time for the SI Swimsuit Issue to help guys make it through the coming months.
And three female (redundant?) professional tennis players. Following the footprints of the sand of players such as Venus and Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova, Daniela Hantuchova, Tatiana Golovin, and Maria Kirilenko will all appear in this year's issue.
All three have done modeling gigs/shoots before so it seems odd that Hantuchova would say that she was pleased by this opportunity to have people see her in a different light--off the court. Because frolicking on a beach in a bikini (maybe not even the whole thing as SI is infamous for those oh-so natural poses of women placing their hands over their breasts--'cause we do that all the time, you know) is a great way to show your fans who you really are.
Golovin thinks it's an honor.
Guess we'll have to wait until the issue comes out to see what sides of these players we are really seeing and how honorable it all is.
