Serena Williams

Serena Williams is (as I write this post) the number one ranking female Tennis player in the world.

Serena along with her older sister Venus have been at the top of the tennis world since the 90's. The Williams sisters have risen the sport to new popularity.

Serena Jameka Williams was born on September 26th 1981 in Saginaw, MI. But she and her sisters grew up in Compton, CA.

Serena Williams father Richard Willams wanted at least on of this daughters to be a tennis super star. He hoped that at the least having his kids in sports would give them a better chance at life and the amount of time he had Venus and Serena work at tennis at the very least it kept them out of trouble that many kids sometimes fall into.

Serena Willams started in the sport of Tennis when she was just a little kid. in fact she won her first tournament when she was only 4 years old. by the age of 10 Serena Williams won 46 junior tournaments (out of the 49 she entered)

in 1995 at the age of 14 Serena Willams became a pro-tennis player. She lost at her first tournament. Serena Williams started to come on the nation's stage around 98 when she beat Lindsay Davenport (who was ranked 3rd best female tennis player in the world at that time)in the Australian Open. later that year she won a number of doubles at Wimbledon and the U.S Open.
