Shooting for the 2022 edition of the legendary magazine is underway. Perhaps we’ll see some more big-time sports figures posing for this year’s issue.
Legendary tennis star Maria Sharapova is among those who have posed for the iconic Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue.
Sharapova posed for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue back in 2006. She was in her peak playing days when she posed for the legendary magazine issue.
Sharapova had won Wimbledon in 2004, before winning the U.S. Open in 2006, the Australian Open in 2008 and the French Open in 2012 and ’14.
Sharapova is one of several tennis stars to pose for the iconic Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue, including Genie Bouchard, Sloane Stephens and Anna Kournikova, among others.
Sports Illustrated Swimsuit has also released a cool behind-the-scenes video on YouTube of Sharapova’s photoshoot with the magazine.
