Shortly after Agnieszka Radwanska dropped her clothes for ESPN The Magazine's Body Issue, the world's fourth-ranked tennis player found herself dropped by a church group in Poland.
A Catholic organization known as Krucjata Mlodych (Youth Crusade) has ended its relationship with Radwanska, who is a devout Catholic and was an ambassador for the group, in the wake of the release of the 24-year-old's nude photos. While the images were not explicit, they caused quite an uproar in Radwanska's native Poland.
"It's a shame that someone who has declared their love for Jesus is now promoting the mentality of men looking at a woman as a thing rather than a child of God worthy of respect and love," Senior Catholic priest Father Marek Dziewiecki told Polish media. "If she meets a man who she can truly love and establish a happy family and raise Catholic children, then she would probably have to hide these pictures from relatives."
Radwanska, who advanced to the semifinals of Wimbledon this year, has some surprising eating habits. The 5-foot-8, 120-pound Radwanska told ESPN The Magazine that she likes to eat a plate of pasta half an hour before she goes on the court. And she says she is quite the aficionado of the Cheesecake Factory.
"You can't beat a nice, home-cooked Polish meal," Radwanska said when asked about her favorite junk food. "But also McDonald's cheeseburgers or cheesecakes from The Cheesecake Factory. I am proud to say I have tried every single one!"
