The Importance of Serena

#SportspersonoftheYear #SerenaWilliams

I’m very passionate on the court, but I’ve learned to be fierce more on the inside.

I’m so happy for Serena. It’s definitely been her year, and I’m proud that a Black woman of strength and beauty can grace the cover of this Magazine with a befitting title that commands attention and respect.

There are so many rules to this beauty thing, and when it comes to Black women, the game is doubly slanted. Over the years, commenters on blogs in general have referred to Serena as part of the Williams brothers, as if muscle and athletic acclaim were something to be belittled, as opposed to lithe frames or surgically enhanced body parts. Serena proudly turned her shoulder to the haters, by winning, and winning, over and over again.

I love Serena for being boldly, unapologetically Serena.

Serena Williams. The Greatest.

If they want to market someone who is white and blond, that’s their choice. I have a lot of partners who are very happy to work with me. -Serena Williams on the endorsement preferences of her white counterparts

Serena Williams, the greatest tennis player of all time, brushes the haters off in the latest New York Times Magazine. Because she is, the best at what she does, and there is no argument about that.

I notice the other girls have similar preparations to mine, and I’m like, ‘Hmmm … well, you don’t want to admit where you got that from, right?’ -Serena Williams

I just got the chance to indulge in the article on Serena Williams in the latest issue of New York Magazine. Body critics be damned, that woman is beautiful, talented, and smart. I have to wonder if all of the hate and commentary on her femininity are simply subtle cries of envy of a woman who has sustained a successful athletic career for well over a decade, and has the abs of a dream goddess.  Either way, Serena stays winning.

Serena Williams Owns The Weekend

Power. Beauty. Style. Grace.

Tennis superstar Serena Williams looked stunning in bedazzled peach gown as she graced the purple carpet for the Champions Dinner in Wimbledon, London. Kudos for Williams for remaining a force of nature and an inspiration for black fitness. She’s the bomb.
