A Catholic youth movement has dropped world tennis No.4 Agnieszka Radwanska for posing nude in the "Body Issue" of ESPN Magazine.

The shot shows the Catholic Radwanska, 24, sitting in a lawn chair by a pool filled with tennis balls.

The Catholic group Krucjata Mlodych (Youth Crusade), which runs a campaign dubbed "I'm not ashamed of Jesus", dropped Radwanska as an ambassador last week for what they said was "immoral behaviour" in the ESPN spread.

Radwanska had earlier spelled out the word "Jesus" with tennis balls and urged young Poles not to be ashamed of their faith in a tv ad for the group.

She was a semi-finalist at this year's Wimbledon.
