Tennis champion Serena Williams is the cover star of the latest issue of Glamour magazine. For the cover shot she is styled in a white Wolford one-piece and an Off White Virgil Abloh jacket and she looks as fierce as ever.
In another shot in the magazine Serena looks absolutely stunning in a Burberry dress while rocking a Fleur du Mal bodysuit and the Azzedine Alaia belt in another photo.
In the magazine she talks about her hopes for having children, if tennis is still fun for her, those Drake rumours and more.
See excerpts below.
On if tennis is still fun: Yes! When I first started really playing, in ’98, I was super excited to see all the people I grew up watching. … I loved Monica Seles, Steffi Graf, and Pete Sampras. … Now it is different yet somehow more exciting. Everything now is a bonus.
On being called the world’s greatest athlete: Oh my gosh, I don’t know. That’s so hard to say. I try to be the best that I can be every day. I have bad days. I had a bad day the other day. I hit for only, like, 30 minutes, and I stormed off the court. But that was the best I could do on that day. So am I the greatest? I don’t know. I’m the greatest that I can be.
On rumours Drake distracted her at the U.S Open: No. I don’t think that was fair. I’m the one who’s playing, who’s making mistakes or making winners. I’m not one to blame anyone else for anything. And I don’t think anyone else should either. I played a really good opponent that day. And I wasn’t at my best.
On having kids: Yeah. I definitely want to have kids one day. That’s something I’ve always wanted since as long as I could remember. And the older I get, the more I’m like, “I’m too young!” [Laughs.]
On the legacy she wants to leave: I never thought about leaving a tennis legacy. I always thought about leaving a legacy of fulfillment, living out your dreams, and giving back. I’m proud to have opened [two] schools in Africa and one in Jamaica [through the Serena Williams Fund and its partners]. I was given a lot. I was given two parents. That’s already starting above a lot of kids. And then I was given the opportunity to play tennis and parents who supported that. I feel I can give back.
