It’s a tradition to only wear white when playing at Wimbledon, so technically Marta Kostyuk isn’t breaking any rules.

But the judges at the All England Club might have something to say about her outfit from a recent Vogue photoshoot, should she wear it on court.

The 21-year-old is set to make her fourth appearance at Wimbledon, one of tennis’ four major tournaments which starts next month, and hopes to build off a career-best third-round exit last year.

The rising star ranks No. 18 in the world and was highlighted in a feature for the fashion magazine looking ahead to the Olympic and Paralympic Games in Paris, celebrating “legendary athletes and new stars of national sports,” of which Kostyuk certainly is among the latter group.

While the Ukrainian often turns heads on the court, she is sure to earn some attention off it after this photoshoot, during which she appeared topless.

Kostyuk shared a snap on Instagram, showing her looking at the camera with her arms covering her otherwise bare breasts.

At least to keep up in accordance with Wimbledon rules, she was wearing a pair of white Nylon skirt-shorts from Intertop.

The blonde beauty captioned the pic saying: “@vogue_ukraine special edition for Olympic Games. What an honour to represent 🇺🇦 #vogue.”

Her followers were over the moon, gushing in the comment section.

“Yes, I’ll be rooting you on in the Olympics! Go Marta, make Ukraine proud!” one user commented.

“Gorgeous photo. You look amazing. You are a beautiful woman & a great athlete!!!” another replied.

While war rages on her homeland, Kostyuk has done her best to make her country proud. She is coming off her deepest run at a Grand Slam tournament after reaching the quarterfinals of the Australian Open earlier year, eventually losing to American Coco Gauff.

Kostyuk has won one singles title on the WTA Tour, capturing the ATX Open in Austin, Tex., last year by defeating Varvara Gracheva in the final. She also has captured two doubles titles, the 2022 Slovenia Open and the 2023 Birmingham Classic.
