Serena Williams, in the world of women’s tennis, is the most charismatic player! Serena herself has declared that there are many sides to her personality. Read on to discover why I define her as the most compelling player to listen to; and most definitely, to watch.
Take for example her surprising response in Italian, after winning the 2013 Rome Final! How she charmed the crowds with her language dexterity. And staying true to her–this gurrl loves to have fun–side; watch as she engages in some hilarious champagne popping.
Now let’s talk….about the Serena who tests and goes beyond possibility. Like when she enters the Serena zone. That’s when historical moments occur! Wimbledon 2012: Serena set a record number of 102 aces, topping all other players( men & women) in this category. She won this tournament with 248 winners(102 were Aces).
Ever the perfectionist, Williams demands of herself an extremely high level of performance. And when she doesn’t reach it, frustration can erupt like a volcano! Remember the WTA finals in Singapore? After committing many errors during her Semi Final match against Caroline Wozniacki, watch how the racquet suffers the wrath of Serena!!!
Along with her extraordinary exploits on the tennis court, Serena is all woman. And when she vamps it up, all stop and stare at her beauty: as my MoMsy used to say “proof is in the pudding”; so gaze upon her, wearing Michael Costello, at the 2014 Vanity Fair Post Oscar party. BELLEZA!
I am forever grateful to Serena, and her accomplished sister Venus, for being the initiation to my love of tennis. Humbled am I to witness the unrivaled power, grace and elegance they exude. The tennis world is all the more richer, as are we who witness!
