A real Renaissance woman, Serena Williams was one of the most sought-after athletes during the early 2000s. Serena could serve a tennis ball at your head at over 100 miles per hour! Yet she wasn’t against showing us her sexy side, and we weren’t complaining!
Her body was arguably more memorable than her grunts on the court. Serena even rocked a black cat suit! The women wanted to be her and the men wanted to be with her.
By 2002, this tennis legend was a worldwide champion. Since being crowned #1, Serena has created an empire. She models, acts, owns a clothing line and is even part owner of the Miami Dolphins. Is there anything Serena can’t do?
