“Luck has nothing to do with it, because I have spent many, many hours, countless hours, on the court working for my one moment in time, not knowing when it would come.” – Serena Williams
I love strong women; I love determined women; I love go-getters; I love people who do not limit their thoughts; I love people who dream big, work hard and stay focused; I love Serena Williams…. her story inspires me so much.
Yesterday, she won Wimbledon (a tennis championship) for the sixth time!
The win means Williams holds all four Grand Slam titles at once — completing the second “Serena Slam” of her career. What’s more, she secured the third leg of a calendar-year Grand Slam and, if she wins the U.S. Open, will become the first player to sweep all four majors in the same season since Steffi Graf in 1988.
At 33, Williams is also the oldest woman to win a Grand Slam title in the Open era. She has now won eight major championships in her 30s, including her first Wimbledon title since 2012.
She has worked very hard to achieve this feat, and her success is definitely worth celebrating. Well done!
“Everyone’s dream can come true if you just stick to it and work hard“. – Serena Williams
