Photos Of This Star Athlete's SI Swimsuit Shoot Are Going Viral

Genie Bouchard, a 23-year-old women's tennis player from Canada, is one of the best athletes in the world. She's recently taken to modeling, too. Bouchard is in this year's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue for the second straight year.

Which is more difficult? "This is harder than playing tennis," Bouchard said of modeling, possibly joking.

Last year, Bouchard was one of a couple of women's tennis players in the magazine. She was in it with Serena Williams and Caroline Wozniacki.

This year, she's in it again with another women's tennis star. This year's magazine also features Sloane Stephens.

Bouchard spoke to SI.com about being in the magazine again. She said it was easier the second time around.

"It was definitely easier! I was much less nervous this time around," Bouchard said."I felt I had experience from my first SI shoot which helped me for this second one. I actually asked MJ to 'go for it' more in this shoot because I felt so comfortable."

SI published more photos of Bouchard's shoot today:

Bouchard's shoot took place in Aruba.
