Written by Ask AllBioHub

Serena Williams, born on September 26, 1981, is a former professional tennis player from the United States.

She is widely recognized as one of the most exceptional tennis players in history. Serena held the prestigious world No. 1 ranking in singles by the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) for a remarkable 319 weeks, including an impressive 186 consecutive weeks.

Additionally, she achieved the year-end No. 1 ranking five times. Serena’s remarkable career includes winning 23 Grand Slam women’s singles titles, which is the highest number in the Open Era and the second-highest overall.

Notably, she is the only player to have achieved a career Golden Slam in both singles and doubles.

Serena Williams, along with her older sister Venus, received coaching from their parents Oracene Price and Richard Williams.

She turned professional in 1995 and achieved her first significant singles title at the 1999 US Open.

From the 2002 French Open to the 2003 Australian Open, she displayed dominance by winning all four major singles titles, known as the ‘Serena Slam’, defeating Venus in the final each time. This remarkable feat earned her a non-calendar year Grand Slam and the career Grand Slam.

Despite facing injuries and a decline in form, Williams made a gradual comeback starting in 2007 and reclaimed the world No. 1 singles ranking. Her resurgence continued at the 2012 Wimbledon Championships, where she regained her dominance and went on to win Olympic gold, completing the Career Golden Slam in singles.

She further secured her position as a tennis powerhouse by winning eight out of thirteen singles majors, including four consecutive titles from 2014 to 2015, achieving a second “Serena Slam”.

At the 2017 Australian Open, she surpassed Steffi Graf’s Open Era record by winning her 23rd major singles title. Following a break from professional tennis due to pregnancy, Williams made a strong return and reached four major finals.

In August 2022, she announced her forthcoming departure from professional tennis, and her final match was anticipated to take place at the 2022 US Open.

In 2016, Williams held the title of the world’s highest paid female athlete, raking in nearly $29 million.

This achievement was repeated in 2017, as she was the sole woman to make Forbes’ list of the top 100 highest-paid athletes, earning $27 million from both prize money and endorsements.

Williams has also been honored with the Laureus Sportswoman of the Year award on four occasions (2003, 2010, 2016, 2018), and in December 2015, she was recognized as the Sportsperson of the Year by Sports Illustrated magazine.

It is worth noting that she holds the distinction of being the highest-earning female athlete in history.

Early Life

Williams was born in Saginaw, Michigan, on September 26, 1981, to Oracene Price and Richard Williams.

She is the youngest among Price’s five daughters, including half-sisters Yetunde, Lyndrea, and Isha Price, as well as her full older sister Venus.

Additionally, she has at least seven paternal half-siblings. The family relocated to Compton, California, when the children were young, and it was there that she began playing tennis at the age of four.

Her father took on the responsibility of homeschooling both her and Venus.

While her parents served as their official coaches, Richard Williams, a man from Compton who shared her father’s name, also played a significant role in their development.

He went on to establish The Venus and Serena Williams Tennis Tutorial Academy.

At the age of nine, Williams and her family relocated from Compton to West Palm Beach, Florida so that she could enroll in Rick Macci’s tennis academy, where she received additional coaching.

While Macci didn’t always see eye to eye with Williams’s father, he respected the fact that “he treated his daughters like kids, allowed them to be little girls”.

When Williams turned 10, her father made the decision to withdraw her from national junior tennis tournaments, prioritizing a gradual approach and emphasizing academic work, while also ensuring that they wouldn’t face burnout before pursuing a professional career.

This choice was influenced by instances of racism, as Richard had overheard derogatory remarks made by white parents about the Williams sisters during tournaments.

By 1991, Williams had an impressive 46–3 record on the United States Tennis Association junior tour and held the top ranking among under-10 players in Florida.

In 1995, during her ninth grade year, her father decided to remove his daughters from Macci’s academy and took on the role of their sole coach at home.

When asked in 2000 if it would have been more advantageous for them to follow the conventional path of regularly competing on the junior circuit, Williams replied, “Everyone chooses different paths. I believe that Venus and I simply took a different route, and it proved successful for us.”

Professional Career

Williams’ parents initially wanted their daughter to wait until she reached the age of 16 before participating in professional tournaments.

In 1995, shortly after turning 14, Williams had planned to make her professional debut as a wild-card entry in the Bank of the West Classic in Oakland, California.

However, the WTA denied her entry due to their age-eligibility restrictions. Subsequently, she filed an antitrust lawsuit against the women’s tour, but later withdrew it at the request of her parents.

Williams eventually made her professional debut in October 1995 at the Bell Challenge in Quebec, using a wild-card entry to bypass the age-eligibility rules.

Despite losing in the first qualifying round to 18-year-old American Annie Miller, Williams did not play in 1996 but achieved her first main-draw victory at the Ameritech Cup Chicago in November 1997.

Ranked No. 304, she caused upsets by defeating No. 7 Mary Pierce and No. 4 Monica Seles, marking her first career wins over top 10 players and becoming the lowest-ranked player in the Open Era to achieve such a feat.

Although she ultimately lost in the semifinals to No. 5 Lindsay Davenport, her performance in Chicago propelled her into the Top 100 for the first time in her career, finishing the year ranked No. 99 in the world.

In the 1998 Sydney International, Williams successfully qualified and emerged victorious against No. 3 Davenport in the quarterfinals.

However, she faced defeat in the semifinals against Arantxa Sánchez Vicario.

Williams then made her debut in the main draw of a Grand Slam tournament at the Australian Open.

She displayed her skills by defeating sixth-seeded Irina Spîrlea in the first round.

Unfortunately, she lost to her sister, Venus, in the second round, marking their first professional match against each other.

Throughout the year, Williams reached six other quarterfinals but was unable to secure a win in any of them. Notable matches included her encounter with No. 1-ranked Martina Hingis at the Lipton International Players Championships in Key Biscayne and her second match against Venus at the Italian Open in Rome.

Williams faced defeat in the fourth round of the French Open against Arantxa Sánchez Vicario and in the third round of the US Open against Spîrlea.

During Wimbledon, Williams had to withdraw from a match with Virginia Ruano Pascual due to a calf muscle strain.

However, she bounced back by winning the mixed doubles titles at Wimbledon and the US Open with Max Mirnyi.

Additionally, Williams and Venus claimed victory in the French Open mixed doubles final.

Williams secured her first professional doubles title at the U.S. National Indoor Championships in Oklahoma City alongside Venus. They defeated Catalina Cristea and Kristine Kunce in the final, becoming the third pair of sisters to win a WTA title.

Williams ended the year with a singles ranking of No. 20, making her the fastest woman in history to achieve this milestone.

Williams was defeated by Sandrine Testud in the third round of the Australian Open despite having two match points.

Following this, she secured her first professional singles title by defeating Amélie Mauresmo in the final of the Open Gaz de France in Paris.

In March of the same year, Williams emerged victorious at the Evert Cup in California, winning her first WTA 1000 event by defeating Steffi Graf in the final, thus putting an end to Graf’s 20-match winning streak in finals that dated back to 1995.

Shortly after, at the Miami Masters, Williams had her 16-match winning streak snapped by her sister in the first all-sister singles final in WTA history.

This marked the best winning streak including a player’s first title since Steffi Graf’s 23-match streak in 1986.

Despite a loss in the third round of the French Open to Mary Joe Fernández, Williams and Venus clinched the doubles title by defeating Martina Hingis and Anna Kournikova in the final.

Williams was absent from Wimbledon due to an injury. Upon her return to the tour two months later, she made her Fed Cup debut and secured a victory against Rita Grande, leading the U.S. team to the final.

Subsequently, she claimed her third title at the JPMorgan Chase Open in Los Angeles by defeating Julie Halard-Decugis in the final.

During the US Open, Williams triumphed over Grand Slam champions Kim Clijsters, Conchita Martínez, Monica Seles, and defending champion Lindsay Davenport in consecutive matches to advance to the final.

There, she defeated the No. 1 player, Hingis, becoming the second African-American woman, following Althea Gibson in 1958, to win a Grand Slam singles tournament.

Additionally, the Williams sisters clinched the doubles event at the same tournament, with Serena becoming the fifth woman in the Open Era to achieve victory in both the singles and doubles events of a major tournament.

To cap off her successful 1999 season, Williams contributed to the U.S. Fed Cup team’s victory by winning a doubles match against Russia in the final.

By the end of the year, Williams had reached a career-high world ranking of No. 4 in just her second full year on the main tour.

Williams initiated her goodbye journey by participating in the Canadian Open with a protected ranking.

She secured her first singles victory in 14 months by defeating Nuria Párrizas Díaz in straight sets, but was later defeated by Belinda Bencic.

Following her exit from the tournament, Williams was interviewed on-court by the organizers and presented with gifts to commemorate her time in the city.

Subsequently, Williams competed in the Cincinnati Masters, where she was defeated in the first round by the reigning US Open champion, Emma Raducanu.

Before the commencement of the US Open, Williams declared her intention to team up with Venus for the doubles event, marking their first collaboration since 2018.

Their initial doubles match took place in the Arthur Ashe Stadium during primetime television, a first for a first-round doubles match.

Unfortunately, the sisters were defeated by the Czech pair of Lucie Hradecká and Linda Nosková. In the singles category, Williams emerged victorious in her opening-round match against Danka Kovinić.

She then caused an upset in the second round by defeating world No. 2 Anett Kontaveit, making her the oldest woman to ever defeat a top-three ranked player.

Williams faced Ajla Tomljanović in what was anticipated to be her final match, ultimately losing in three sets.

During her matches at the 2022 US Open, where many speculated it would be her final tournament, a video showcasing highlights of her career was played after her opponents’ introduction but before Williams’ entrance.

Criticism arose towards the tournament directors for allowing Williams to walk out second, a privilege typically reserved for the higher-ranked player.

Some viewed this decision as ‘disrespectful’ towards the US Open officials for compelling her opponents to watch a two-minute montage of Williams’ accomplishments in an unprecedented move.

Following her first-round match, notable figures such as Woods, Mike Tyson, Bill Clinton, Ruth Westheimer, Spike Lee, Vera Wang, and Eric Adams were in attendance. The tournament featured a video narrated by Oprah Winfrey and had Gayle King conduct the post-match on-court interview.

Rivalries

Serena vs. Venus

Williams played older sister Venus in 31 professional matches since 1998. Overall, Serena is 19–12 against her sister.

Serena played Venus 15 times in Grand Slam singles and 13 times in other tournaments (including 11 finals).

They have met in nine Grand Slam tournament finals, with Serena winning seven times.

Beginning with the 2002 French Open, they played each other in four consecutive Grand Slam finals, which was the first time in the Open Era that the same two players had contested four consecutive finals in Grand Slam singles.

Williams vs. Hingis

Williams leads the series 7–6 One of Williams’s first rivalries was with Martina Hingis, who turned pro less than one year before her (Hingis in October 1994, Williams in 1995).

They first played each other at the 1998 Miami Open where Hingis won in three sets.

All but one of their matches was played on a hard court with the exception being a contest on clay in Rome 1999, which Hingis won in straight sets.

Their last match took place at the 2002 Miami Open with Williams winning in a loss of just four games.

Hingis was forced to briefly retire citing ankle injuries.

Williams vs. Henin

Williams leads the series 8–6. Justine Henin and Williams have met 14 times, five of which were in tournament finals. In majors they have faced each other seven times with Henin leading 4–3.

Opposite personalities and styles of play are often cited as what made their rivalry entertaining.

In the semifinals of the 2003 French Open, when at 4–2, 30–0 on Williams’s serve in the third set, Henin raised her hand to indicate she was not ready to receive; Williams then put her serve into the net.

The umpire did not see Henin raise her hand, and thus did not allow Williams a first serve.

Williams lost the game and would go on to lose the match. Their last match took place in the final of the 2010 Australian Open where Williams won in three sets to take her 12th major title.

Williams vs. Azarenka

Williams leads the series 18–5. The rivalry began at the 2008 Australian Open, and their most recent match was in the semifinals of the 2020 US Open.

Williams holds a 10–1 record in Grand Slams. Azarenka is the only person to ever win four WTA tour level finals against Williams.

While their rivalry is heavily favored towards Williams, their matches are known for their fierce competitiveness, and Azarenka is considered the only player to truly challenge Williams following the retirement of Capriati, Henin, and Hingis, with 9 of their matches extending to three sets.

Williams vs. Sharapova

Williams leads the series 20–2. The pair first met in the fourth round of the 2004 Miami Open, where Williams defeated Sharapova 6–4, 6–3.

Their rivalry truly began at the 2004 Wimbledon final, where Williams was the two-time defending champion; Sharapova upset her 6–1, 6–4.

Williams next lost to Sharapova in the finals of the 2004 WTA Tour Championships, 6–4, 2–6, 4–6. Since then, however, Williams dominated the rivalry, winning all of their clashes, with only three of their matches going to three sets.

They met 10 times in Grand Slam tournaments, where Williams led 9–1, and they further met in 9 finals, with Williams leading 7–2.

Sharapova retired in February 2020, with their final match being in the first round of the 2019 US Open; Williams defeated Sharapova 6–1, 6–1 in one hour exactly.

Despite the one-sided nature of their rivalry, it is considered one of the most prominent rivalries on the WTA Tour of the 21st century, due to alleged personality clashes, similarly aggressive playing styles, and significant media interest.

Legacy

Williams is considered one of the most exceptional female tennis players in history. In 2017, BBC Sport users voted for Williams as the top female tennis player of the Open Era.

BBC presenter and former French Open Champion, Sue Barker, emphasized Williams’ greatness by stating that she excels in a highly competitive era, with her powerful serve and relentless pressure on opponents.

In 2018, a Tennis.com panel also recognized Serena as the greatest female tennis player of the Open Era.

Many commentators, players, and sports writers have hailed Williams as the best female tennis player of all time.

Even Roger Federer acknowledged in 2018 that Serena Williams had a strong case for being the “Greatest Of All Time” in tennis, regardless of gender.

The Tennis Channel further solidified Williams’ legacy by ranking her as the greatest female tennis player of all time in 2020.

In 2022, John McEnroe described Williams as an “icon” and the ultimate “GOAT of GOATs”.

Alongside her sister Venus, Williams is widely praised for promoting diversity in the sport.

It all starts with Venus and Serena. The demonstration effect. The power of seeing two African-American girls with braids in the finals of the biggest tournaments in the world in a predominantly white sport. Just a huge impact that really can’t be overstated. That attracted thousands of girls into the sport, not just African-American but all backgrounds and races. — Martin Blackman, General Manager of Player Development, United States Tennis Association

Following her announcement, numerous fellow players, such as US Open champions Sloane Stephens and Coco Gauff, along with four-time Grand Slam champion Naomi Osaka, expressed their gratitude towards Williams, acknowledging that they would not have pursued tennis if not for her influence.

Williams has been honored with the Laureus World Sports Award for Sportswoman of the Year on four occasions (2003, 2010, 2016, 2018).

Additionally, in December 2015, she was recognized as Sports person of the Year by Sports Illustrated magazine.

Furthermore, in December 2019, the Associated Press named Williams Female Athlete of the Decade for the 2010s.

She holds the title of the highest-earning woman athlete of all time.

During their first match in March 2019, the women of the United States women’s national soccer team each wore a jersey bearing the name of a woman they admired on the back; Crystal Dunn chose to honor Serena Williams.

In September 2022, Twitter revealed that Williams had become the most tweeted-about female athlete in history.

Player Profiles

Williams was a dominant player who relied on her powerful serve and aggressive groundstrokes.

Due to her high-risk style of play, she often hit a significant number of winners as well as unforced errors.

One of her greatest strengths was her serve, which is widely regarded as the best in women’s tennis history.

Known for its speed and precision, Williams was able to deliver numerous aces.

In fact, during the 2013 Australian Open, she served an ace at an impressive speed of 128.6 mph (207 km/h), making it the third-fastest serve ever recorded in WTA history.

Williams also had exceptional ball toss accuracy, allowing her to serve to any part of the court with minimal variation in the ball’s position in the air.

This made it challenging for her opponents to anticipate her serve and gain an advantage in the rally.

Additionally, Williams had effective kick and slice serves, which she used as second serves to minimize double faults and prevent her opponents from easily scoring points.

Coaches

Williams has had several coaches in her career. Richard Williams from 1994 to 2022, Oracene Price from 1994 to 2003, Patrick Mouratoglou from 2012 to 2022, Eric Hechtman in 2022, and Rennae Stubbs in 2022.

Equipment and apparel

In the early 2000s, Williams wore Puma apparel and footwear on court. Nike designs custom clothing for Williams, which she wears on the court along with custom footwear.

The largest building on Nike’s Portland campus is the one million square foot Serena Williams Building which features many references to the athlete’s career and her long collaboration with Nike.

According to John Hoke, Nike’s Chief Design Officer, Williams made an important contribution to the creative process of the design of the building.

She used the Wilson Hammer Stretch range of racquets when she won her first Grand Slam title in 1999, before switching to the Hyper Hammer range.

She switched to the Wilson nCode briefly in 2005, and used various iterations of the Wilson Blade racquet since 2008. Her racquet is typically oversized, with a head size of 104 square inches.

Since 2017, Wilson has manufactured a signature racquet, the Wilson Blade SW104, which is designed to Williams’s specifications.

Since 2020, Williams used a smaller variant of this racquet, the Wilson Blade SW102 Autograph.

Personal Life

Williams and Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian tied the knot on 16 November 2017 in New Orleans, surrounded by 350 guests, including celebrities like Beyoncé and Kim Kardashian.

After the wedding, they planned to relocate to San Francisco.

On April 19, 2017, Williams accidentally revealed her pregnancy on Snapchat with a caption that read “20 weeks”, confirming the news later that day.

This announcement came just weeks after she won the Australian Open, meaning she was already eight weeks pregnant at the time of her victory.

In September of 2017, Williams welcomed her daughter into the world through an emergency caesarean-section delivery.

Initially, she was deeply saddened by the circumstances surrounding the birth, as her baby’s heart rate had dropped during labor.

To comfort her daughter, Williams gave her a doll named Qai Qai, which has since gained popularity on social media.

Despite facing inquiries about whether she plans to raise her daughter as a tennis player, Williams has already hired a coach for her.

She frequently shares photos of herself and her daughter on the tennis court, showcasing their shared love for the sport.

In May 2023, Williams announced her second pregnancy before the Met Gala, where she was visibly expecting. She later gave birth to her second daughter in August 2023.

Williams has two tattoos adorning her body: a small heart on the back of her neck and a rose on the back of her left shoulder.

A committed vegan, Serena follows a plant-based diet while training and competing.

Williams was brought up as a Jehovah’s Witness, but she claims that she has never truly practiced the religion.

However, she often expresses gratitude to Jehovah after winning matches. She has confirmed that she adheres to certain practices, such as not celebrating birthdays, as it goes against the beliefs of Jehovah’s Witnesses.

In January 2023, approximately six months after retiring, she underwent baptism as a Jehovah’s Witness in Florida.

Aside from being a native English speaker, Williams is also proficient in conversational French and has some knowledge of Spanish and Italian.

During the 2013, 2015, 2016, and 2018 French Open, she delighted the crowd by conducting her on-court interviews in French.

Williams has a deep appreciation for French culture and even purchased an apartment in Paris, which is conveniently located near the iconic Eiffel Tower.

Regarding her health, Williams faced a medical emergency in 2011 when she was hospitalized for a pulmonary embolism believed to have originated from a deep vein thrombosis.

In 2017, she experienced another bout of venous thromboembolism, resulting in a pulmonary embolism after giving birth.

This condition left her bedridden for six weeks and delayed her return to training.

In August 2018, she bravely revealed her battle with postpartum depression.
