No matter what is said about tennis champion Serena Williams, she continues to prove that her beauty is undeniable.

Magazines from all over cannot stop raving over the chocolate goddess.  Out of the countless compliments and reviews, here are 6 of the best reactions to Serena’s cover thus far:

  1. “Serena Williams looks stunning on the cover of ‘New York’ Magazine’s fashion issue.” Complex Magazine
  2. new photos for are just too good” VIBE Magazine
  3. “Serena Williams eyes a post-court career in fashion—but first, there’s tennis history to make” New York Magazine
  4. “Serena Williams is putting her haters to shame…If this jaw-dropping pose isn’t impressive, we don’t what is.”
  5. “As if being one of the best athletes alive weren’t enough, Serena just had to go and show every supermodel how it’s done.” ESPN
