Tennis - 31 year old Serena Williams is the world's no. 1 ranked player but like most other people, the American had a hard time dealing with the fact that she turned 30 years old.

The 15 time grand slam champion, who has been playing some of the best tennis of her career in her 30s, told reporters in Miami, "Last year or the year before I was turning 30 and I panicked and thought I needed to get a really old car. Yeah, that was like a couple years ago, I think - so it was my mid-life crisis.

"I don't know why, but that was my reaction. It was really hard for me to turn 30. I really struggled, and I was just like, 'Oh my gosh.' I don't know why, but that's what kind of came out of it. I have come to turns with being over 30 now, but getting there was really hard!"

Serena has won 71 of her last 75 matches since the beginning of the clay court season last year which includes titles at the Olympics, Wimbledon and the US Open.

Serena has said she has no plans to retire anytime soon.
