Exclamation Women tennis players on TIME magazine covers

... have been very few and far between.

2001: Venus and Serena Williams
1957: Althea Gibson
1946: Pauline Betz
1936: Helen Hull Jacobs
1931: Betty Nuthall
1929: Helen Wills
1926: Helen Wills

So the Williams sisters are the first since Althea Gibson in 1957 to take on a TIME magazine cover, some of you will remember that cover "The sisters vs. The world" and features both their photos on the cover. Of course, it's interesting to note that people like Navratilova, BJK, Graf, Evert, Seles and Hingis never made it onto the cover.

Helen Wills is the only female tennis player to make a full feature cover TWICE. In fact, I think she's one of very few women to have ever done so.

Light of the Seven: Himalayas, Gobi, Baikal, Taiga, Steppe, Reef, Aurora

Venus and Serena will be on it sooner or later again.
