Pregnant Serena Williams Shows Off Nude Vanity Fair Cover

NEW YORK (AP) -- Serena Williams is showing off her pregnancy with a nude photo on the cover of the August issue of Vanity Fair.

The tennis superstar is seen in profile with her right arm covering her breasts and her pregnant stomach prominently on display. The magazine unveiled the cover Tuesday.

On Twitter, the woman considered by many as 'the greatest tennis player ever' asks, "What do u guys think boy or girl?"

Serena announced her pregnancy with Reddit co-founder Alexis Olhanian in April. The magazine reports the couple will be married in the fall after the baby is born. Williams tells the magazine she "did a double take" and her heart "dropped" when she saw a positive test because it came just before the Australian Open, which she ended up winning.

Also Tuesday, former tennis star John McEnroe refused to apologize for his remarks in which he said Williams wouldn't rank among the top 700 players if she were on the men's tour.
