Stephen A. Smith ranks Serena over Tiger Woods
As per Smith, Serena Williams’ athletic contribution is more than American golf legend Tiger Woods. However, the reason he gave is very interesting. Here’s what he said.
“I’m going to say something that’s gonna be controversial, but it ain’t to me. I put her ahead of Tiger because Tiger didn’t embrace his blackness. She did, and that brought more adversity her way. He did not. So people were more receptive to him. That counts for Serena, in my opinion. And by the way, I don’t care what anybody says to refute that. I’m not listening.”
Serena definitely has faced various difficulties in life. However, the way she kept her head high and moved past all those hurdles is incredibly inspirational.
Serena Williams was once trolled for her muscular body
Even after achieving almost everything she could have in tennis, there still are certain negatives Serena would like to forget. A few trolls targeted the 23-time Grand Slam champion for her body. The former world number one has a muscular physique, and it works a great deal in her game as she flexes her muscles to generate power.
However, the trolls mocked Serena, saying she was born a guy. However, the legendary tennis player didn’t pay any heed to the negativity and instead came up with a statement that she is proud of her body.
