    Just got the latest TENNIS magazine with Serena on the cover. She's looking pretty good. However, the question is this the real Serena or has "magic" been performed as was done with Roddick's arms last year.

    Nearly every person on every magazine cover is airbrushed these days. Sometimes a little, sometimes a lot, even if they're attractive, "flawless" people to begin with. So, I'm voting "yes."

    regardless, she has lost a lot of weight, from all parts of the body, she looks really amazing...

    I'm not even sure that's actually her body. Compare those pics to the unretouched ones of her in her bikini from earlier this year - there's twice as much of her in that bikini as there is on the Tennis cover. They slimmed Wozniacki down for the Tennis cover a while back, but nothing this severe; t'ain't no way that picture of Serena is unaltered.

    But besides that, why do we have a photo of Serena Williams in a swimsuit on the cover of Tennis anyway? Just stupid. It's consistent with the ever-increasing fluff quotient of that magazine, though, that much is certain.

    Photoshop is a powerful tool ;-) She looked nothing alike during Wimbledon, just saying.

    Many supercomputers died to bring us these photoshopped pictures.

    Of course it is airbrushed! Every person you see on a professional magazine cover is airbrushed. Have been for years now.

    I'm a straight woman--just sayin'. Serena still has humongous boobs--for sure way bigger than the photo. I'm sure they trimmed everything else down. I will say that her face is nicer--she clearly had some kind of plastic surgery on her face last year; am guessing she had her jaw narrowed and probably a slight refinement of her nose and her lips slightly narrowed. It was a great job as it's fairly subtle. Just saw her on TTC on a WTT match from 2000. She was (for her) slender back then and had normal-sized female arms! Her face looked quite different from now, hence I am even surer about the facial changes than I was before. Her current arms are enhanced--I suggest by some fat but also by a huge amount of chemically induced muscle. Anyway, her body does change in real life, not just via air brushing. So air brushing on a magazine cover is the least of her physical changes IMO.

    The cover photo looks altered, the others look good.

    I just watched her sister playing Team Tennis. Venus seems to be gaining weight. Her face looked puffy and she wasn't wearing the form fitting clothing she usually wears.

    Nothing is "airbrushed" anymore. It's hard to even find someone who can airbrush photos anymore.

    Retouched, yes.
