Mike Tyson snubbed Serena Williams to choose her rival!

Mike Tyson is a fan of tennis, as well as Serena Williams, arguably the greatest tennis player. Despite this, Tyson snubbed his countrywoman, stating that Naomi Osaka is actually the best tennis player in the world. In the latest episode of his Hotboxin podcast, alongside rapper Cordae, Tyson claimed that Naomi Osaka was the best in the world.

Tyson couldn't believe his daughter was mad at him for meeting Osaka, who is also Cordae's girlfriend, and went on to call her the most beautiful and best player in the world: "I can't believe my daughter should be mad at me to be with the most beautiful and best player in the world."

Serena said goodbye to tennis after a legendary career

Serena Williams is on the Forbes ranking of the richest self-made women in the United States.

In this case, she ranks ninetieth with an estimated $ 260 million in assets. The only other athlete present is Maria Sharapova, who found herself in 97th place with a fortune of forty million dollars less than her former colleague.

Serena Williams left tennis last September, at the US Open, in front of her home crowd. The US star has won 73 WTA singles titles. 23 of these are Grand Slam events, making her the second player ever to have won more Majors in this specialty behind only Margaret Smith Court, with 24.

She completed the virtual Grand Slam, which consists in winning four consecutive Slams not in the same calendar year, twice. She has also won five year-end Master Cups and 19 Premier category tournaments, as well as 21 Tier I and Tier II titles and a gold medal from the London Olympics in 2012 against Maria Sharapova.

Not only in singles Serena Williams can boast numerous victories, but also in women's doubles and mixed doubles, where there are 16 other Grand Slam tournaments: 14 won with her older sister Venus and two in mixed doubles, both obtained with Maks Mirny in 1998.

To these successes must be added three other gold medals at the Olympics, all won together with Venus, a Federation Cup and two Hopman Cups. Serena managed to earn 340 million dollars thanks to sponsorship contracts. Forbes last spring placed her in 31st place in the 2022 ranking of the highest paid athletes in the world.
