A Catholic youth organization in Poland has dropped native tennis great Agnieszka Radwanska, 24, after her appearance in the 2013 ESPN Body Issue, reports the Agence France-Presse.
The Body Issue is ESPN’s annual celebration of athletes’ bodies, featuring athletes, both male and female, from a variety of sports posing nude. In Radwanska’s case, she was photographed in a lawn chair near, and floating on a raft in, a pool full of tennis balls.

The group, known in Poland as Kruciata Mlodych (which means “youth crusade”) call the ESPN portraits “immoral behavior” and have dropped Radwanska as a spokesperson. Earlier this year, Radwanska appeared in an advertisement for the group where she urged young Poles not to be ashamed of their faith.
What do you think? Is it immoral behavior? Is a nude photo a nude photo, or does it make a difference that the Body Issue is not really sexual or explicit?
