Over the years, Serena Williams has inspired tennis fans with her audacious displays on the tennis court. Possessing a never-say-die attitude, she has given her all to attain success in the sport. Additionally, she has displayed tremendous grit and determination all through her career to become one of the greatest players ever in the sport.

Take the example of the Australian Open in 2017. Before the tournament, Serena found out that she was soon going to become a mother. Subsequently, she went on to play in the Grand Slam tournament and defeated her elder sister, Venus Williams, in the finals to win her 23rd Grand Slam title. Recently, she had some words of inspiration for her fans.
