Serena Williams was among the few to step into the shoes of a professional at an early age. She was a champion with a Grand Slam win at the age of 18 in 1999. She had completed her Grand Slam in 2003. With her deft and adept skills at athletics, Williams grounded her opponents on the tennis court and eventually, stood out of the crowd as a celebrity with her sister Venus Williams.
Serena was able to get over Venus at the French Open, the US Open and even at the Wimbledon in 2002. She became one of the six ladies to win a Grand Slam. She displayed her prowess at the game again when she won the women's doubles Olympic gold medal in 2008 with Venus. The 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia, saw her getting a gold medal.
There were a series of losses and wins over the years, but ultimately, Serena explored arenas beyond tennis. She dived into the world of film and fashion with her indigenous brand of clothing, Aneres. She appeared in some television shows since 2002, and even bagged some roles in a couple of films. She lent her voice to some TV shows like The Simpsons. She was an instant hit with her striking looks and outgoing personality.
She has been working for educating young underprivileged all over the world under the auspices of Serena Williams Foundation. She has been behind the construction of several educational institutions in Africa.
She has been an arduous student of fashion design too with her sister Venus.
