Since she burst onto the tennis scene winning her first US Open at age 17, Serena Williams has been an athletic force of nature.
She and her sister, Venus, have continued to dominate and reshape the sport for basically two decades. And in between her incredible championship wins and continuous athletic growth, she’s carved out a life that’s just as fascinating off the court.
In 2017, she earned a spot as the only female on Forbes’ Highest Paid Athletes list. Now, at 36-years-old with a net worth of $27 million, her list of personal and professional accomplishments continues to grow at a profound rate and shows no signs of slowing down.
Studying her fascinating life up to this point is a lesson in discipline, resilience, and sheer creativity.
