S

ingle-handedly elevated the American professional tennis game, ranking No. 1 in women’s singles, chief-sporting-Taylor-Swift-loving-director-of-fun reigning champion, Serena Williams is a feminine powerhouse. Winning over 30 Grand Slam titles and multiple Olympic gold medals, it’s fair to say she may know a thing or two about what it takes to be a champion but most importantly, how to remain true to herself and dreams…regardless of any naysayers.

Serena has taken her experiences and packaged it into a Masterclass. An online platform for students of all levels to learn from the greats. Where she teaches more than just tennis. She expands on life and how to make the best of what’s handed to you.

Here are 22 quotes from Serena Williams that prove she deserves the crown:

  3. “You don’t wake up one day and become a champion. People helped me get there, I want to be that for you.”
  4. “Since I don’t look like every other girl, it takes a while to be okay with that. To be different. But different is good.”
  5. “I love who I am, and I encourage other people to love and embrace who they are. But it definitely wasn’t easy – it took me a while.”
  6. “I was just tired of losing. . . . Life was passing me by.”
  7. “You have to challenge yourself to grow.”
  8. “The success of every single woman is an inspiration for another.”
  9. “Physically you need to be great, emotionally you need to be stable and I need to have a good connection with my spirituality. When I have those three things together, I feel good and do well.”

  14. “If anything, you know, I think losing makes me even more motivated.”

  16. “When you’re playing the best player in the world, you’ve got to play well.”
  17. “I’m totally human.”
