Serena Williams speaks on tennis career: “I feel like nothing’s going to stop me”

 

Serena Williams is already speaking out about discriminatory drug testing she is experiencing but she’s not all about the downside of her incredible tennis career. She recently sat down with renowned designer, Zac Posen, for his Yahoo Lifestyle miniseries, Loud and Clear, to discuss her 23-year tennis career and share some stories about raising her adorable daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian, Jr.

“Twenty-three grand slams has been amazing, but I think having my daughter, Olympia is probably the best thing that’s happened to me,” Williams noted.

“Teach her to always be a positive voice, even though other people have negative voices, that’s okay because that’s their opinion and they’re entitled to that, but that doesn’t mean that she has to have a negative voice.”

She also explained how her own positive attitude has influenced her unwavering determination.

“I never give up … I never stop. And I feel like nothing’s going to stop me when I want to do something,“ she said. “I really believe that it’s very important to speak to other people and be a mentor to other people and be positive. No matter who you are, uplift someone today.”

According to Williams, her tournament-prep strategy has changed over the years.

“So when I first started, I had a lot of routines,” she said. “I would go through all this list of stuff and I felt like this is too much, so now my routine is to be different, to do something different, that I’ve never done so I don’t get this repetition in my brain and that way, I can play more free, I can think more free and I can just be more free.”
