Serena Williams admits she has been "bodyshamed" due to her curvy figure and has been "paid unequally" because she is a woman.
The 37-year-old athlete claims she's received unfair criticism because of her "body shape" and believes she's ran into trouble just because she's female.
In a first-hand essay for Harper's Bazaar magazine - for which she has posed in unretouched photos - she wrote: "I've been shamed because of my body shape. I've been paid unequally because of my sex. I've been penalised a game in the final of a major because I expressed my opinion or grunted too loudly."
