First they win on court and now they are winning on the beach. Eugenie Bouchard, Caroline Wozniacki and Serena Williams are featured in the newly released Sports Illustrated 2017 Swimsuit issue.

The pictures and videos, snapped in the picturesque Turks and Caicos Islands, are impressive.

For Wozniacki and Williams, it’s almost par for the course since it’s Wozniacki’s third straight year and Williams has appeared in the pages in years past.

“It’s always something that’s really fun and it always feel really good…,” Williams said in her behind-the-scenes video. “Every suit that I’ve worn has been better than the last, but I love the modern one piece that’s really high.”

“First of all I’m not a size 2, and it’s OK to look good and to feel good,” Williams said. “And I’m strong and I feel like it’s OK to look strong, to be sexy and to be a woman, and to be unbreakable…”

It was Bouchard’s first time gracing the sands in a bikini (or less) for SI, but she seemed to settle into the role quickly.

“The first moment I heard I could be in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition I was very excited, but at the same time nervous,” Bouchard said. “My first thought was, oh my god, how am I going to do it?”

“The one shot that stands out in my mind is when I had an umbrella and I was jumping…” Bouchard said. “It was the most athletic shot of the day for sure.”

Wozniacki, a veteran swimsuit model by now, embraced the props on set wholeheartedly.

“Today we had some fun props on set, we started off with the giant blow up lips…,” the Dane said. “I tried to balance the giant lips, but it was quite difficult because the wind kept taking the lips away from me.”

It clearly all turned out very well though, with Wozniacki also venturing out onto dry land.

“This is my third year shooting. I think the first year I came in I was a little bit shy,” Wozniacki said. “But last year doing the body paint was really completely outside of my comfort zone—I think it became a little bit more sexy and a little bit more flirty. I think I’m feeling more comfortable this year…”

Meanwhile, Bouchard enjoyed her Super Bowl bet date with a Twitter follower so much that the tennis star says she’ll take him out again. The Canadian star and now swimsuit model sat courtside at a Brooklyn Nets game on Thursday with a fan, John Goehrke, who asked her for a date on Twitter if the New England Patriots won the Super Bowl. Stunned that the fan was a ‘normal’ guy, the 22-year-old hasn’t brushed him off.

“He picked me up at my hotel like a gentleman and we came over here (to the NBA). He got me a nice little gift, we enjoyed the game courtside,” she told TMZ.

The gift must have worked. Asked if there would be a second date, Bouchard didn’t hesitate in answering.

“For sure,” Bouchard said, nodding her head; “Yeah,” added John.

In a related development, America’s favourite bombshell, the incomparable Kate Upton has also graced the pages of SI Swimsuit once again!

The blonde beauty we all know and love was shot by Yu Tsai in beautiful Fiji, marking the fifth time that Kate has landed a spread in the annual Swimsuit issue.

As you may recall, Kate first started her career with SI Swimsuit back in 2011. Her impressive debut earned her the coveted Rookie of the Year honour. She went on to land the cover back-to-back years in 2012 and 2013. At just 22-years-old, she was also named as a member of 22-person SI Swimsuit legends class, which included icons like Heidi Klum, Christie Brinkley, Tyra Banks and Elle Macpherson, to name a few.
