Serena Williams is one of the legends of sports history, probably the GOAT of tennis history. The American champion has achieved great results over the years, she was number one for some time and, together with her sister Venus, she rewrote the history of this sport.

Winner of 23 Grand Slam singles titles, she has also achieved important numbers in doubles. Serena is a tennis player who has rewritten the history of black athletes, another battle that she and Venus have fought for years.

One of these concerns mental health and Serena has often fought hard for this issue regarding female athletes.

Through social media the youngest of the Williams sisters made it clear on X that she wasn't feeling well but that ultimately there were no problems with it, it's just normal.

"I'm not okay. And it's okay to not be okay. No one is okay all the time and every day. If you're not okay today, I'm with you. There will always be a tomorrow. I love you," she explained. More and more tennis players are talking about mental health issues, a serious problem that should not be abandoned.

Iga Swiatek also criticized the WTA for not managing this situation in the best possible way and all the athletes do not feel understood at all by the federation.

Serena Williams' nostalgia

Recently, again through X, Serena Williams went crazy with her fans.

The former American legend wrote how she is doing her workouts with her pre-match playlist. This gave her a lot of nostalgia, which evidently transported her back to the time when she dominated on teh tennis courts: "Too much nostalgia!

I'm working out to my tennis pre match playlist." Serena, who became mother to little Adire River a few months ago, has never stopped training to stay in shape. And all her fans hope to see her for some exhibition performances on the court, again.

Maybe one day she will gift it us.
