During her tennis career, the American Serena Williams has repeatedly publicly pointed out the inequalities she experienced in her professional experience and the difficulties she experienced as an African American tennis player.

The former world number 1 has done something exceptional by winning 23 Grand Slam titles in a sport that has long been considered “for whites” and has gone through numerous difficulties to get there. Serena Williams is considered by many to be the strongest tennis player of all time but it is clear that she can still be regarded as one of the greatest icons in tennis history.

Serena Williams gave an interesting chat with Kelly Clarkson of Michigan and dealt with a variety of topics claiming her rights.

Serena Williams and her experience in the world of tennis
The former number 1 in the world made the following statement: “There were so many adversities that I had to overcome, even being myself was considered to be different.

In particular, the world of tennis is a sport where no one looks like me and at least at the beginning you can’t really express yourself, it seems like a really bad thing to me. There is a double standard in everything we do, but unfortunately this is the society we live in and it takes several generations to change.

I think the most important part is to always be yourself and always be a humble and kind person. And that’s the best I can do. In the end, I really feel like things have come together at some point. I’m just trying to be just the best person I can be.”

Serena Williams has been looking for a 24th career Grand Slam title for some time, a title that would allow her to reach the top of this particular ranking at Margaret Court. Williams wants to dispel this taboo in 2021 as she has lost the last 4 Grand Slam finals and is unable to reach the Court.

With the 2020 season now over, Serena is recovering and enjoying quality time with those who matter most. The 23-time Grand Slam champion is spending relaxing days with her daughter Olympia, and recently she launched an entire collection of jewelry inspired by her three-year-old daughter.

The By My Side collection ranges from diamond lock and key necklaces to matching mother and daughter stud earrings, with each piece celebrating their special love and bond. The jewelry designed by Serena herself, ranges from $ 85 to $ 875 for pairings of necklaces and more.

Serena Said: “Being a mom is very important, but also being a leader so that my daughter can look at me and say: This is what my mother did, I aspire to do it and I want to be better! It is really important to inspire the next generation because this is the future.

Let’s move on, I’m so proud and inspired by the women who do it day in and day out. I’m proud to be this little girl’s mom.” On the Instragram post of the official page, you can read: “Introducing the By My Side collection by Serena Williams Jewelry.

It’s jewelry for the moms and daughters who love each other through the highs and lows, and everything in-between. Because life is better when you’re By My Side.”

WATCH : Andre Agassi revealed a shocking information on what makes Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal special

WATCH : Andre Agassi speaks on what makes Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal so special

Andre Agassi the former World No. 1 from USA was part of one of the most fiercest rivalry in tennis which he had with fellow countryman Pete Sampras.

Andre Agassi and Pete Sampras met each other 34 times on the court in which Pete emerged victorious 20 times and Agassi 14 times. Both the Americans were always in battle for the top rankings and dominated the entire tennis of 90s. While Sampras won 14 Grand Slams, Agassi won 8 but won all the 4 Grand Slams which Pete couldn’t do as his best run at French Open was till the semis.

Tennis fans were lucky as they did not have to wait for much long post the conclusion of the Agassi-Sampras rivalry as a new rivalry had already started which produced matches of highest level. Swiss Maestro Roger Federer and King of Clay Rafael Nadal had started showing colours of what they were going to do in the coming years on the tour.

Andre Agassi recently appeared as a guest on ‘The Ranveer Show’ an interview hosted by Ranveer Allahbadia on YouTube in which Agassi talked about his auto-biography ‘Open’, The Big 3 of tennis, his learnings from his wife Steffi Graf, Federer-Nadal rivalry and various other things.

Answering a question on what makes Federer and Nadal so special, Agassi explained how every top player brings something special to the game that nobody has ever seen before giving the examples of Pete Sampras, John McEnroe, himself and others,

“When you saw Pete come in, nobody had a serve like him before. It was just remarkable. Everybody had to deal with it. Mine was ball striking, taking the ball early on both sides. Nobody played that way when I came in the game so.” said Agassi.

“When you look at Fed for example, I played him in the finals of the 2005 US Open and there was no safe place on the court. He probably had the best forehand in the world. When he played (Andy) Roddick, he aced Roddick more than Roddick aced him.”

“Then Rafa comes along and brings such enormous spin to the game that it actually changes the rules of engagement.

“Great players always do something that nobody else does” says Andre Agassi

Talking about the things Federer and Nadal changed, Andre Agassi said, “His (Federer) movement was a joke, his hands at net were a joke, his versatility was a joke. He might have had 5 things individually better than everybody on the tour. It’s hard to beat that guy.”

“You have two things with Rafa that clearly stand out to me, because he can hit the ball and it does not inward bounces, that changes position in the court where you can play and off-sets a lot of others. His power of movement, his strength and endurance and physicality is kind of unmatched.

“When you look at all these great players they always do something that nobody else does and that’s what gives them the chance to sit at No. 1 for a period of time.”

Agassi was part of some of the biggest rivalries during his 2-decade long career and like all other tennis fans considers himself lucky enough to witness the great Federer-Nadal rivalry.

In a press conference in Paris on Sunday Rafael Nadal was asked what he did after his wedding with his longtime girlfriend Maria Francisca Perello on Saturday October 19. The Spaniard said: “I played a charity exhibition in Kazakhstan for my foundation.

Novak came to Kazakhstan to play for my foundation. So that was — I can’t thank him enough. So have been great feelings. But obviously after the wedding I have the Sunday off. And then Monday, Tuesday, practice; Wednesday, flying to Kazakhstan; and Thursday late night here.

I take my weeks off during the season, and we decided that well. And in the world of tennis, you have to find your priorities, and we decided the way that we wanted to do. We take our time off before the wedding, and now is the moment to be back on the tour.”

On his schedule looking to the next weeks, Nadal concluded: “My program, everybody knows, is here, London, and Madrid. But as always, depends on how I feel.” Meanwhile the defending champion Karen Khachanov said: “It’s great to be back in this place, everything has started at a top level.

It was like a turning point when you beat four top ten players winning my maiden Masters 1000. It’s been one year, it looks like yesterday, it goes fast, a lot of things happen, it’s a long journey and this year at the beginning it was not so great but overall it was a good and positive season. You always expect something bigger than yourself but it could be worse and it’s about improvement.”

‘Here almost everyone knows who I am but they are always calm’, the Swiss said in a recent press conference. ‘There was a time of my life when I tried not to make myself get recognized from other people. I went to the supermarket wearing sunglasses, hat, scarf.

Almost like it happens in movies! It was a short time to be honest because I was not that comfortable with it.’ The writer David Foster Wallace described seeing Federer as a “religious experience”. Can it be stressful? ‘Obviously.

Especially because I am aware that it will last until I am able to win. One day even my figure will not be so much at the centre of attention.’ Is he worried by it? ‘No. I worked with Stefan Edberg and he was my idol since I was a kid.
