American tennis player John Isner and Polish women’s star Agnieszka Radwanska are two of the 21 athletes chosen to pose in this year’s ESPN Body Issue, which celebrates the athletic human form. Below are snippets from their ESPN articles, which hits stands on July 12th. John Isner What do you like about your body? I’m a tall guy; I’m 6’10″. I’ve done a good job putting some meat on my bones since my freshman year of college. It’s taken a lot of work. I was just under 200 pounds my freshman year; I was 6’8″ and 198 pounds. Now I’m 6’10″, 238 … [B]ack in college, I was a tall, goofy, underdeveloped kid. At 19, I didn’t have a hair on my face. When I was 20, I looked 14. I feel I’ve grown out of that stage. I just turned 28, and, luckily for me, I look like a 28-year-old. If you could change something about your body, what would it be? I would like to have a bigger chest, but right now, when I’m playing tennis, is not the time. Have you ever felt self-conscious about your body?
