Serena Williams is a professional tennis player regarded as one of the best athletes of all time.

She began playing tennis at the age of 4 and won her first professional singles title at the age of 17. Williams has claimed 73 career titles in singles and 23 more in doubles play.

Though Serena Williams fell short at the 2021 Australian Open, her longtime coach believes she has the internal motivation to claim at least one more major before retiring.
