Serena Williams has done it all in tennis, but there’s so much more to come for her at the US Open.
At 24 years old, the world’s greatest women’s tennis player finally made it to the US Open, and it’s hard to begrudge her the accomplishment. It’s no secret that Williams is one of the most dominating athletes in history, having played her way into tennis’ Hall of Fame as a teenager in the late 1990s, and she’s on a never-ending run of good form, having won six Grand Slam titles in the past two years. But just to prove how far she’s come, Williams is now the first woman to win the US Open, Grand Slam, Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon, all majors.

Billie Jean King has been a tennis player since she was 3. She’s competed on the Australian Open, French Open, US Open, and Wimbledon junior tours. Billie Jean’s been involved in every aspect of tennis from coaching, player development, to player support. Throughout her career, she has produced some of the greatest players in the sport, and has earned respect and admiration
