In 1997, although Puma got the 16-year-old tennis prodigy on board when she was a Top-100 player, a few years later another big brand roped in Serena Williams. She signed a multi-year contract with the $139 Billion brand in 2003 after she emerged as the World No.1. Their contract stayed unblemished even after the 23-time Slam champion hung her racket. Serena and the world’s largest athletic apparel company, have helped each other grow and bring more inclusivity on board.
