ESPN "The Body" Issue Coming Out Friday!

Interesting ... according to "Fanhouse" The U.S. Open has fined Serena Williams $10,000 for her tirade directed at a line judge at the end of a semifinal loss to Kim Clijsters. It's the maximum on-site fine a Grand Slam tennis tournament can issue for unsportsmanlike conduct. The U.S. Open said the Grand Slam Committee Administrator has opened an investigation to determine whether Williams' behavior should be considered a "major offense," which can lead to additional penalties. Williams is also being docked $500 for racket abuse.

Fast forwarard ....ESPN the Magazine is coming out with 'The Body' issue which is set to hit newstands this Friday, October 9.

The magazine will feature famous body conscious athletes in the nude on the cover and inside the pages (not totally nude -- but let's say "bared") they will be strategically covering up their most intimate parts. And, Serena Williams is on one of the covers. Personally, I'm not necessarily happy with her right now. She really showed a bad side of herself in a tennis game; where sportsmanship, dress, rules and etiquette are very, very big.

At any rate, there will be six total issues with the first three covers featuring mixed martial artist Gina Carano, NASCAR driver Carl Edwards and triathlete Sarah Reinertsen, the first female amputee to complete the grueling Ironman Triathlon. On a personal note, would love to see him do his winning back flip dressed like this : )

The next three you will see Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, tennis star Serena Williams and the final one with Orlando Magic superstar Dwight Howard . CHECK OUT A SLIDESHOW OF THE COVERS.

Rumor has it that IndyCar racing stunner, Danica Patrick, will appear inside the magazine.
With that being said, PopCrunch has the Top 50 hottest female athletes of all time -- RIGHT HERE!
