Serena Williams, the legendary American tennis player, was kept out of a major GOAT debate. Fans reacted wildly to the blatant disrespect for the former tennis ace. A famous media house had forgotten to pick Williams in their debate. As a result, fans couldn’t control their anger and quickly flooded the conversation with their tweets. They shared their perspectives on social media.


Serena Williams recently triumphed at the 2022 People’s Choice Awards, winning the title of the year’s “Game Changer.” The 23-time Grand Slam champion defeated LeBron James, Steph Curry, and Rafael Nadal by receiving the most fan votes. ‘Daily Loud’ has developed into one of the most popular hip-hop websites in the nation. However, the website made a blunder on Twitter and fans were quick to point it out.

Serena Williams had previously declared that she would transition away from the sport. When asked about her plans, she had declined to change her mind about putting down her racquet, but she did not completely rule out a comeback, saying you never know. The famous hip-house outlet had shared a collage of all the GOAT athletes on their Twitter feed. Fans were disappointed that Williams was kept out of the picture and quickly shared their emotions.

‘Daily Loud’ asked fans on Twitter who they thought was the greatest athlete of the century so far. The American legend had dominated the women’s game unlike any of her predecessors ever did, demonstrating through her utter dominance, and a long list of records.

One angry user quickly pointed out and tweeted,” Don’t ask me no stupid f**king question.” Williams had won her 23rd Grand Slam championship while being pregnant with her daughter.

 

Her capacity to triumph on all surfaces proves that she is arguably the greatest tennis player of all time. The American ace had returned to action and made it to a few Grand Slam finals despite surviving nearly fatal complications during childbirth. Fans were surprised to see her name skip the GOAT debate.

Williams is the first athlete to have won championships in each of the four decades (1999–2020).

An astonished user tweeted,”…also any list without @serenawilliams is an insult.” 

Some users quickly pointed out her stats and chose their favorite. Williams is an excellent illustration of someone who makes the most of their brand both on and off the field.
