Serena Williams unveiled her latest magazine cover on her Twitter feed Saturday, posting the April 2015 edition of Vogue.

Labeled "Queen Serena" by the fashion giant, Williams has captured her second Vogue cover, the first being her appearance alongside Ryan Lochte and Hope Solo in a 2012 issue ahead of the London Summer Olympics:

On Friday, the world No. 1 withdrew from her Indian Wells semifinal against eventual victor Simona Halep with a right knee injury, bringing to an end her first appearance at the California tournament since 2001.

The day after withdrawing from the tournament, she seemed relaxed as she apparently read about herself in the newest Vogue, as Jezebel noted:

Despite her withdrawal from Indian Wells, Williams looks set to defend her title in the Miami Open—which begins Tuesday—after consecutive victories in 2013 and 2014.
