Eugenie Bouchard’s second Sports Illustrated Swimsuit feature is a barnburner.
The history-making Canadian tennis star made her return to the highly anticipated annual magazine special, modelling on the shoreline of the tiny Dutch Caribbean island of Aruba.
“It was definitely easier! I was much less nervous this time around,” Bouchard said of her second consecutive appearance. “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.”
One photo featured Bouchard, 23, going topless, wearing only a black bikini bottom and a unique white interlinked outfit across her shoulders and arms.
The 2014 Wimbledon finalist showed off her vibrant personality in a second photo, rocking cool shades and striking a pose only achievable by a pro athlete.
Bouchard was not the only tennis player featured in SI‘s Swimsuit 2018 special. Sloane Stephens made her swimsuit debut after winning her first major title at the 2017 U.S. Open.
