“I’ve realized that I can’t spend time stressing about something I don’t have and just embrace what I do have,” she said about her body. “It’s so in to have curves now. It’s in to be looking healthy. If I don’t look like a supermodel on the runway, that’s OK because I look good in my own way.”
It isn’t about looking a certain way. It is about being healthy, which in turn you will look healthy. ESPN has learned to embrace this beauty of being healthy and looking healthy too! Every year, The Magazine’s Body Issue is released, where athletes strip down to nothing but their birthday suits and we get to see what goes on under the uniforms. It features athletes from all different sports of all shapes and sizes. The magazine embraces the idea that these people workout for a living, yet they don’t all have the same body or that same ideal body a lot of us envision having in our own heads. These people literally sweat to make money and they all come in all shapes and sizes–truly displaying the ultimate level of health and beauty.
“As the former number one player in the world, Wozniacki has done it all, and when she was younger, she would ‘just kill it in the gym until I couldn’t stand anymore.’ But as many of us can agree with, she explained, ‘the older I’ve gotten, I’m so much better at listening to my body. If you push yourself too much, it’s going to be worse.’
On the cover, a naked Wozniacki follows through on a powerful serve, putting every muscle in her body on full display while holding her two favorite accessories: a tennis ball and her racket. While it’s obvious she looks incredible, Wozniacki explained why she didn’t worry about baring it all on the cover.
She added, ‘I rarely stand on a scale, to be honest. When I stop playing, I’m not going to obsess so much about my weight. It’s going to be more about a healthy lifestyle. It’s more about how I feel.'”
Be on the look out for ESPN’s The Body Issue to hit newsstands July 7th with Wozniacki and other athletes like Isaiah Thomas, Ezekiel Elliott, and more.
