She's hardly the new Anna Kournikova, or the Miley Cyrus, of the women's tennis tour. Meet Agnieszka Radwanska, the fourth best female tennis player in the world, and someone who still can't understand all the fuss over her naked photoshoot for an American magazine.
This has been quite a year for Radwanska, and not just because she played in a Wimbledon semi-final, and went peroxide blonde (then back to her natural brown), and clouted a 99mph forehand believed to have been the fastest shot ever struck by a woman.
In her own words, she caused "a stir around the world" this season when she was photographed naked for ESPN Magazine's Body Issue, with a Catholic young group in her native Poland dropping her for what they considered to be "immoral" behaviour.
It was a bizarre situation because really one guy objected and it caused a stir around the world."
Radwanska, about the most polite and personable tennis player you will encounter on the circuit, isn't the type who makes a habit of causing stirs around the world. Indeed, as the 24-year-old suggested, how can you say that the image of her was offensive when the same issue carried a topless picture of Gary Player, a male golfer in his seventies?
There was less outrage when Ashley Harkleroad, an American player, once appeared in Playboy than there was after Radwanska's shoot (which, as she said at the time, "contained no explicit imagery whatsoever"). And Serena Williams and Daniela Hantuchova are among those to have previously featured in a 'Body Issue'. But no one ever accused them of immorality.
"It was a bizarre situation because really one guy objected and it caused a stir around the world. Actually 99.9 per cent of the feedback was great," Radwanska told BT Sport.
"The article was all about how I keep in shape as an athlete and was meant to inspire young girls into keeping fit - which it did.
Radwanska's WTA titles this year:
ASB Classic, Auckland
Apia International, Sydney
KDB Korea Open, Seoul
“It also promoted tennis as it gave us a presence among other high-profile athletes in golf, football, basketball and volleyball, for example.
“It was hardly offensive - there was a picture of Gary Player topless in there for goodness' sake."
Radwanska had been an ambassador for the youth group's campaign, 'I'm not ashamed of Jesus', and had once posed for a picture with Jesus spelt out in tennis balls. A priest attacked her over the images: "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 as a child of god worthy of respect and love."
It is to Radwanska's credit that she didn't allow the controversy to put her off her tennis. "I don't think it was a distraction as I reached the final of a tournament in Stanford the week the story broke."
Radwanska lost out to Lisicki in the Wimbledon semi-finals this year
Later this month, Radwanska will be appearing at the WTA's season-ending championships in Istanbul, the most exclusive event in women's tennis, restricted to the best eight players in the world. That is her reward for what she regards as a "good, very consistent" year.
"I've won three titles, and played in two grand slam quarter-finals and one semi. The only thing missing is a grand slam title and that's top of my priority list for next year," said Radwanska, the runner-up to Serena Williams at the 2012 Wimbledon Championships.
Her highlight of this year, and her greatest disappointment, was the Wimbledon semi-final she lost to Germany's Sabine Lisicki. "The highlight was Wimbledon - it's always my favourite tournament - but it's bittersweet. I lost a tight semi when I felt like I could have gone all the way."
Radwanska's intelligent, creative game - she has great touch, and uses angles and spin - is such that she has invited comparisons with Martina Hingis. But, while playing a tournament in China during this autumn's Asian swing, the girl from Krakow hit the ball with a ferocity that caught a few by surprise.
"Yeah, that was awesome,” she laughed. “It was probably the hardest shot I ever hit and it's definitely up there as one of the best. Normally my great shots are more trickery than power so this one was unique."
That, arguably, was the most shocking moment of Radwanska's year, and not the occasion she sat naked by a swimming pool for an article discussing her body, and how she does 300 sit-ups a day (as impressive as that undoubtedly is).
