Legendary tennis professional Serena Williams had a big year in 2017. In addition to winning her final Grand Slam—the 2017 Australian Open—and giving birth to her first daughter with husband Alexis Ohanian, the incredible athlete took to the pages of the annual Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue for the third time. 

She had graced the pages much earlier in her career—in both 2003 and 2004—when she was in the midst of establishing herself on the WTA Tour. By ’03, Williams had already won four major titles, and she was clearly on the path to greatness. By her most recent appearance in the annual issue, she had cemented her legacy. In total, Williams retired with 23 Grand Slam singles titles, a major feat in the game of tennis.

But her impressive skills and talents aren’t simply relegated to the tennis court. Williams proved again and again in her appearances in the SI Swimsuit Issue and other impressive magazine titles over the years that she has talent in front of a camera. After all, with her level of athletic ability, she’s used to being in the spotlight—that was evident on the beaches of Turks and Caicos in 2017.

She spoke to that very confidence she brought to the set of her third feature in an Instagram post at the time. “‘She exudes confidence, she is woman’ #siswimsuit make today a confident one,” she wrote on Instagram alongside one of the stunning pics from her photo shoot.

Here are a few of those absolutely breathtaking photos from Turks and Caicos.
