Serena Williams, who was ranked 63rd in Forbes' World's Highest-Paid Athletes list, is also a fashion icon, a mentor and a mother. During her tennis career, she has won 39 Grand Slam titles put her joint-third on the all-time list and second in the Open Era: 23 in singles, 14 in women's doubles, and two in mixed doubles.
Serena is also, together with her older sister Venus, the most recent player to have held all four Grand Slam women's doubles titles simultaneously. “I always say it’s about the lifestyle, not a moment. After how long I’ve been around, [I’ve realized] it never really happens.
I just try to focus [year-round] on how I want to live my life; I definitely love being healthy and eating healthy and rejuvenating my body. Life for me now is about convenience: quick and now," Williams said in a recent interview from her home in Palm Beach Gardens.
Serena's coach Patrick Mouratoglou spoke about the defeats in the last Slam finals: “I think it's important to understand that, when Serena plays a Grand Slam final, she has more pressure than any other player.
She plays to make history. She is incredible. The pressure is enormous. And on the other side, she had bad luck because she played with younger players who were relaxed with no stress and pressure. That's why she lost. She will have chances because she is playing well”.
