If Allyson Brooke were an athlete, she would want to be Serena Williams

Serena Williams lost another chance to win her 24th major against Naomi Osaka in the Australian Open 2021 semifinals. However, she had defeated two of the hardest hitters, Aryna Sabalenka (22) and Simona Halep (29), to reach the final four. It proves that she only needs a final touch to complete her long-awaited goal.

Moreover, it also clarifies that the former World No.1 is still one of the biggest competitors in tennis. This unstoppable search for more despite winning every tennis accolade is a spirit of a pure athlete.

So when Ally Brooke had to pick an athlete she would want to be, she unhesitatingly said, “Serena Williams. For sure.”

Furthermore, she explained why she chose the American tennis professional.

Brooke said, “She is crushing it. She is like the No.1 across the board like she is beating everybody.”

Along with the ‘Perfect’ singer, many men and women athletes also desire Serena’s unrivaled strength and athleticism. But winning 39 Grand Slam titles (singles, doubles, and mixed doubles combined) is not a feat that happens once in many generations.

The four-time Olympic Gold medallist has won the title thrice in Roland Garros. However, winning it in 2021 will value more than her previous three combined.

Last year, Serena had to pull out from Paris due to her persistent Achilles’ heel injury. Hopefully, this time around, she would be physically and mentally fit to take on any challenges coming her way.

Do you think Williams will win her 24th Grand Slam title before retiring?
