And she joked: "Been saving money on clothes… #quarentinelife".

The American caused controversy in 2008 when she became the first active tennis player to pose topless for Playboy magazine.

Harkleroad is clearly comfortable with and confident in her body, however, defying her critics and happily still posing nude 12 years on.

One of her fans on Instagram commented: "Best photo in confinement".

While another labelled her a: "Perfect beauty…"

"Amazing body really Oh," another added.

Harkleroad peaked at world #39 back in 2007, before taking time away from the sport to have her first child.

And after a brief comeback in 2010, she again stepped back from competing to have another child.

Following her defeat to Serena Williams in the first round of the French Open back in 2008, Harkleroad was asked about her Playboy shoot.

She said: "I thought about it, and it was something that I did.

“I’m proud of my body. I was representing a female athlete’s body.”

The former WTA player is married to 48-year-old former ATP star Chuck Adams – and has commentated on Tennis Channel in the US since her 2012 retirement.
