Serena Williams IS The Great Athlete Ever

Serena Williams IS The Great Athlete Ever

Serena Williams is the greatest athlete of all time, it’s just that simple, whether you like it or not. Now I don’t know much about tennis and I was never interested until my mom finally got me watching it in 2012 and I must say it’s quite an intense sport, but once you seen one match you’ve seen em all right? Wrong. Let me tell you for a brief moment how and why Compton’s finest reigns in this tennis shit, win or lose. Serena has broken so many records in the tennis game it makes no sense, but actually it does, when is the last time you seen a woman, excuse me a BLACK WOMAN dominate in a sport like this, I can’t recall, now we had several like Lisa Leslie, Sheryl Swoops, and recently Skylar Diggins and Maya Moore on the basketball side, but Serena is on a whole different planet from the competition, all because of this woman everyone is watching tennis now and it’s mainly just to see her, whether it’s the US Open for the title or just an exhibition.

Serena has been destroying the competition for so many years that her opponents beating her means a lot more than winning a trophy, think about it, how many times have we seen people cheer in favor of Serena losing, they can’t stand the fact she’s dominating the way she is, but when she wins we gotta hear the typical “I can’t stand her” jive talk, let’s cut the shit here people, Serena has taken over the sport of tennis like Tiger Woods took over golf (even though Woods is washed to oblivion right now) and you’re going to have to deal with it, she is in the ranks among the greatest athletes in the world, to some extent Serena Williams is the Michael Jordan and LeBron James of tennis. When Serena retires the sport of tennis will not be the same and you know it, I might of not seen her play in person but her matches on TV feels like you're there rooting for her. Tennis is going to be left high and dry with watered down competition fighting to break her records alone, the ghost of Serena is going to be at US Opens laughing her ass off at the future players struggling to get a decent serve, you can slice it however you want, when its all said and done Serena Williams is the greatest athlete of this generation and will be the greatest athlete ever, deal with it.
