See how Serena Williams became one of the all-time greats in women’s tennis?
No pressure, I guess.
I say that because it’s been a while since the young Serena Williams made history in tennis, but it was only a couple of years, when she became the first woman to win the U.S. Open and the British Open, in the same year.
And then, it was only three, when she became the first woman to win the French Open three times.
And then it was four, when Williams became the first woman to win Wimbledon four times.
And now it’s seven, when she became the first woman to win her fourth U.S. Open, becoming the first to get the first four in the same year.
That’s a pretty impressive run for someone who turned 20 earlier this month.
Williams went from a little girl, playing on a playground, to a young woman who dominated women’s tennis, and now, is arguably the greatest of all time.
There was a time when Williams was the greatest player in the world, and she was even better than that.
But then, there was a time when Williams had a lot of work to do.
Her life was a mess, and Williams made it even worse. And now, she’s a world champion, and it’s all because of the things she had to survive.
When I first met Williams in 2012, she was on the verge of having a nervous breakdown.
She was going through really rough times, and she turned to a little girl, and made a promise to a girl: That, one day, you’ll be as good as me.
The day was Sept. 21, 2012, when Williams defeated Serena in the first round at Wimbledon.
“Just to look at you, just to look at your face. I’ve been watching you, and I have really high expectations.
“So I’ve had to work hard, but I like to be at the top. And I want to keep being at the top.”
Her story had started in a way, with a man, and then Williams went through the things she had to survive as a woman.
In her life, she had to become an adult, and be a role model to an entire generation of girls who didn’t have a role model to look up
