Isner and Radwanska Pose Naked

By Lisa-Marie Burrows

Close your eyes if you are shy, but there are more naked tennis players. Yes, naked.  Quite a few players have done it in the past for charity and in raising awareness campaigns (Google ATP players if you want a reminder) and this time, it is John Isner and Agnieszka Radwanska’s turn.  They have both appeared in the ESPN The Magazine’s Body Issue, which celebrates the physique of athletes… and Isner and Rawanska have a lot to celebrate.

Isner stands at 6’9″ and the American was offered a chance to feature in the magazine last year, but he did not agree until this edition.

The American revealed in the article how he would like to have a bigger chest and stronger upper body.

In the past, Serena Williams, James Blake, Vera ZvonarevaDaniela Hantuchova and wheelchair star Esther Vergeer have all posed for the annual issue.

Poland’s Agnieszka Radwanska is 5’8″ and in the magazine, she discussed how lucky she is that she does not have to do any extra gym work to keep her tiny frame.  However, for this year’s Wimbledon semi-finalist, being small has not always been easy.
