Serena Williams is a professional tennis player from America and a former world No. 1 female tennis player. She was born in Michigan, Saginaw but her family moved early to California and then on to Palm Beach, Florida, in order for Serena and her sister Venus to join the Rick Macci Tennis Academy. Serena and Venus Williams both were taught before the run of Grand Slams by their father Richard.
Serena is one of the biggest tennis names of all-time who has rewritten record books in a manner never previously achieved by a tennis player, male or female. She has accomplished everything in the sport and is still good, even after giving birth to her child.
Williams' most striking thing is her level of superiority over the rest of the field. Few sportsmen have dominated their sports like Williams has if any; for the better part of 20 years, the distance between her and the next best tour players was stunningly high.

She is the latest female player to have played all 4 Grand Slam singles titles simultaneously, after Rod Laver and Graf, and the third to do so twice.
