The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue has featured some pretty notable athletes over the years. 

From Genie Bouchard to Serena Williams to Sloane Stephens, there have been several prominent tennis stars featured in the issue in recent years. 

Several years ago, legendary tennis star Anna Kournikova took part in the issue.

Kournikova, a Russian tennis star who reached her peak fame in the late 1990s and early 2000s, posed for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue in 2004.
