Serena Williams graces the cover of Vogue magazine rocking a Rag & Bone blue sleeveless dress and some fierce curls!
When you think of Serena it’s clear to say you think of a woman who is so confident in herself, on and off the court. Well, that’s not completely accurate. The tennis star opens up to the magazine about her confidence level being different on and off the court. She also talks about female athletes being able to be friends regardless off what people may assume.
Serena on her personality: “On the court, I am fierce! I am mean and I am tough. I am completely opposite off the court. My confidence just isn’t the same. I wish I was more like I am on the court. Nobody would know that I am constantly crying or complaining.”
Caroline on Serena helping her through her breakup: “First she texted, ‘If you don’t pick up, I am going to fly to Monaco.’ And then, ‘If you don’t answer the door, I am going to knock it down.’ So I thought, OK, I better answer the phone. And I am so glad I did. She wasn’t pitying me, like a lot of people were. I mean, it’s not like anyone died. I was in shock, but she was really helpful because she had been through it before. She didn’t sugarcoat it, and she didn’t look down on me. She was really there for me when I needed her the most, and that’s why I think our friendship is so strong now.”
Serena on being friends with her rival: “Let’s just put an end to this myth that women players cannot be friends. We can!”
