Serena Williams Is Obviously A Champion. Here’s Why She’s A Boss!

 

serenaSerena Williams won Wimbledon last week, tying Steffi Graf’s record of 22 Grand Slam wins and setting the record for being the oldest woman to ever clinch a major title — a record she herself had previously set. She’s been on the professional tour for two decades and is showing no signs of slowing down. She is probably the greatest tennis player of all time.

But Williams is also the ultimate off the court, shutting down men with bad opinions, dancing in music videos, wearing beautiful clothes, and even occasionally fighting crime.

Simply put: She reigns supreme. But in case you needed any more convincing — or are firmly on board with that statement and just want to revel in her glory — here are 19 times she made it very, very clear. Long live Queen Williams.

Game 7 and Williams’ 22nd Wimbledon win were both pretty incredible.

3. WHEN SHE PUT RAYMOND MOORE IN HIS PLACE FOR HIS DUMB, STUPID, NO GOOD, VERY BAD, SEXIST COMMENTS

The CEO of Indian Wells said some idiotic things about women tennis players, and Serena completely destroyed his non-logic with her response.

At a press conference she was clearly not thrilled about, she said, “It’s 11:30 … To be perfectly honest with you, I don’t want to be here. I just want to be in bed right now and I have to wake up early to practice. And I don’t want to answer any of these questions.
