During her tennis career, the American Serena Williams has repeatedly publicly pointed out the inequalities she experienced in her professional experience and the difficulties she experienced as an African American tennis player.
The former world number 1 has done something exceptional by winning 23 Grand Slam titles in a sport that has long been considered "for whites" and has gone through numerous difficulties to get there. Serena Williams is considered by many to be the strongest tennis player of all time but it is clear that she can still be regarded as one of the greatest icons in tennis history.
Serena Williams gave an interesting chat with Kelly Clarkson of Michigan and dealt with a variety of topics claiming her rights.
Serena Williams and her experience in the world of tennis
The former number 1 in the world made the following statement: "There were so many adversities that I had to overcome, even being myself was considered to be different.
In particular, the world of tennis is a sport where no one looks like me and at least at the beginning you can't really express yourself, it seems like a really bad thing to me. There is a double standard in everything we do, but unfortunately this is the society we live in and it takes several generations to change.
I think the most important part is to always be yourself and always be a humble and kind person. And that's the best I can do. In the end, I really feel like things have come together at some point. I'm just trying to be just the best person I can be."
Serena Williams has been looking for a 24th career Grand Slam title for some time, a title that would allow her to reach the top of this particular ranking at Margaret Court. Williams wants to dispel this taboo in 2021 as she has lost the last 4 Grand Slam finals and is unable to reach the Court.
With the 2020 season now over, Serena is recovering and enjoying quality time with those who matter most. The 23-time Grand Slam champion is spending relaxing days with her daughter Olympia, and recently she launched an entire collection of jewelry inspired by her three-year-old daughter.
The By My Side collection ranges from diamond lock and key necklaces to matching mother and daughter stud earrings, with each piece celebrating their special love and bond. The jewelry designed by Serena herself, ranges from $ 85 to $ 875 for pairings of necklaces and more.
Serena Said: "Being a mom is very important, but also being a leader so that my daughter can look at me and say: This is what my mother did, I aspire to do it and I want to be better! It is really important to inspire the next generation because this is the future.
Let's move on, I'm so proud and inspired by the women who do it day in and day out. I'm proud to be this little girl's mom." On the Instragram post of the official page, you can read: "Introducing the By My Side collection by Serena Williams Jewelry.
It’s jewelry for the moms and daughters who love each other through the highs and lows, and everything in-between. Because life is better when you’re By My Side."
