Serena Williams: A Living Legend

Witness greatness as Williams heads into the 2019 Wimbledon semifinals.

After literally decades of experience in the sport, Serena seems to show no signs of slowing down.

You would think that after a pregnancy in late 2017 or simply time catching up, Serena would slow her dominance. Yet, we’re in 2019 and Serena Williams is headed to another semifinal at The Championships.

Serena entered Wimbledon as the 11th seed and has gone on to beat Giulia Gatto-Monticone, Kaja Juvan, Julia Görges, Carla Suárez Navarro, and most recently, Alison Riske in the quarter finals. She’s 37 years old and still asserting her dominance. Her technique, strength, and natural ability only seem to keep getting better and better.

With the way she is playing, Serena is on her way to her 24th major singles title. Winning a singles tournament is no easy feat, but when Serena is on pace to win another trophy, there really should be no debate as who is the greatest women’s tennis player of all time.

Serena is also competing in the mixed doubles with Andy Murray, a two-time Wimbledon singles champion. She has not competed in the mixed doubles competition since 1998, more than 20 years ago! However, with a favorable partner who complements her well, they have reached the third round (at the time of this writing). With the amount of skill between the two, I would not be surprised if they made the final.

Be sure to keep an eye out for the next couple of games in The Championships, whether it’s Serena Williams in the singles semifinal or her partnership with Andy Murray in the next round of the mixed doubles.
