Serena Williams has an estimated $225 million net worth according to Forbes. The American magazine has now included Serena as the first athlete who joins the richest self-made women list. Serena has invested on 34 start-ups and she got married to the Reddit Co-Founder Alexis Ohanian in 2017.
Speaking of her investments, Williams said: “I want to be a part of it. I want to be in the infrastructure. I want to be the brand, instead of just being the face”. Ohanian, who follows Serena with their daughter Olympia around the world on Tour, said: “She is determined to be great at everything she does."
In an interview to Le Journal Dimanche, the French Tennis Federation chief Bernard Giudicelli recalled the last year's French Open case featuring Serena Williams and her Catwoman outfit. The organizers had said that kits like that one could have been banned in the future, but Serena warned that she wore that outfit because of health issues.
"I regret last year's controversy with Serena. She is a great champion, she does not deserve that", said Giudicelli.
