I can't say enough about this beautiful woman. She reminds me of Xena, the warrior princess. Serena is the epidimy of womanhood... confident, strong, healthy, and sexy. She's proof that you don't have to be a size zero to be incredible. She is somebody that I strive to be like. FOCUSED...all of the time. DETERMINED...all of the time. GIFTED...all of the time. And FLY...all of the time.

Serena writes, "There are believers, there are those that are hopeless, thoughtless, dreamers, those that are ambitious, the fearful, the brave, the fighters, the lovers, the survivors, the dependent, the independent & I am Serena Williams. I am all of the above plus a tennis player & now an author. I am the author of "On The Line." I am a woman, an African-American woman. Yes, I've faced adversity and unlike some, I've faced it under the lights and under the attention of the world. I am not only an American tennis player, I am an African-American daughter, sister, aunt, cousin, friend, but to the world I am an international tennis player...." You can read the rest on her blog on Global Grind.

Now, Serena is in the semi-finals in the U.S. Open. The match is set to begin Friday Sept. 11th if the weather allows. Serena Williams, 11-time Grand Slam champion, has won 52 Open matches in her career. The other three remaining women in the U.S. Open have combined for 42. She has proven that she is a better tennis player than her older sister Venus, who has lost her last four rounds. Venus is damn good, so that makes Serena a superhero!

Serena Williams on being one of the “Sexiest Female Athletes In The World”:

I have large boobs and a sizable a**, so I guess the title comes with the territory. But I just play tennis. I always try to look my best, even though it’s hard to look your best when you’re sweating, grunting, and making faces. I never look my best when playing.”
She tells Men's Fitness Mag. (pics also from Men's Fitness)

Serena Williams on her favorite physical part of her body:

“I love my smile. My smile and my cleavage. [Laughs] I think they go really well together.”

Serena Williams on guys being intimidated to date her because of her athletic status:

“It definitely makes it harder, which is not really cool because I”m like the girl next door. My attitude is so relaxed and so chill, and what you see is what you get. I guess sometimes people get intimidated, not by my being Serena Williams, but just more or less by the things that I’ve accomplished and the things that I might have in my life. I think for any woman who is strong and supports herself, that tends to be a problem.”

Serena Williams on what she looks for in a guy:

“I’m a sucker for gentlemen, I’m old fashioned. I’m a girl who believes that a guy should take the lead. They should open doors, close doors. I also look for someone who has a good relationship with their mom. My mom always said, ‘Look for someone whom you can laugh with, ’cause it means you can have fun with that person.”

Serena Williams on major turnoffs:

“Guys should never grab me. I hate when guys grab girls. I think it’s so rude. I’ve been grabbed numerous times. Don’t touch. I”m not your property. I absolutely hate that.”

Serena Williams on what she’d be doing if not playing tennis:

“I love acting and writing, so I would probably either be a struggling actress or a writer.” (A writer?? Awww!)
