Indisputable living legend. Serena Williams is a double digit Grand Slams holder. There are a lot of inspirational thing to talk about her. How I wish that she should retire so that I can stop feeling happy to see her win and win again…fall and rise back then win. Why? It is so hard to catch up her momentum, and keep going to push harder in our daily life issues, crisis and challenges . There are moment that we just have to let our self loosing , let go and not finishing it. Then one day, when we heard that this iconic sport star reach to the top again, it will make us look bad, if we do nothing to better our self to another level. That’s life!. We should fight and never give up. Hence, Serena is a living definition of “Survivor”. If we think we can, then surely we can do it, to achieve success in the field we do best.
Serena Jameka Williams is a US citizen and born in September 26, 1981. She is the best in the Women Tennis Era with 23 Grand Slams ( Single) and 4 Gold Olympic medals. Wimbledon must be her strongest field with 6 championship. The grass court has given her big advantage to capitalise her serving power which was so fatal. Her brilliant technique also helps to contribute high number of aces. Base on record, in Wimbledon 2015 alone, she fired 74 aces while her closest rival Vesnina was second on 31. Her fastest serve in All England club during 2016 was clocked at 198mph. Equally as good with Male player like Novak Djokovic (who clocked his quickest at 196 kmph), Kei Nishikori (196) and David Ferrer (188).
In contrary, we always see that she was quite struggling to win French Open. However, she still manage to win 2 championship. Regardless any statement by sport analyst, Serena has shown to the world that in order to be a G.O.A.T, it requires combination of many elements. The power, technique,motivation,health and even team support.

We should not end this article without sharing her motivation quotes. She has a lot actually when I start to google. However, some that really interest me are:
“I really think a champion is defined not by their wins but by how they can recover when they fall.”
“The success of every woman should be the inspiration to another. We should raise each other up. Make sure you’re very courageous: be strong, be extremely kind, and above all be humble.”
“You have to believe in yourself when no one else does.”
