Venus and Serena Williams cover the latest issue of The New York Times Magazine.

The Olympic-winning sisters stand shoulder to shoulder as they show off their chiseled bodies and beauty as African American women.

The article chronicles their meteoric rise to fame as two of the world’s most recognizable faces in tennis plus what each sister feels are her career highs and lows.  Their mother, Oracene Williams says it best when talking about her daughters’ success.

“I reflected on the fact that in the United States, you don’t have many players that are doing well,” Oracene Price told the Times. And then you have these two old, black girls, up in age now, and they’re still holding up America. That to me was remarkable.”
