The cover has caused some controversy.
Many on social media questioned why the word “Woman” was in quotes on the cover.
The athlete's femininity has been criticized before.
Williams wrote an open letter on Reddit about being called a man because of her muscular physique last year.
In a response to the controversy, a GQ employee tweeted the artist responsible for the design uses quotation marks in many of his works.
