The Audacity To Win

Serena Williams is one of the best tennis players that ever breathe.  She has revolutionized the game in countless ways with her compelling style.  Serena is my favorite female athlete of all time.  I admire her determination and passion to be the BEST.  In spite of injuries and health problems that threatened her career over the past two years, she rose to the occasion to win this year's Wimbledon in England, and her fourteenth career grand slam title.  I remember like it was yesterday when she won her first grand slam title at the US Open in 1997 against Martina Hingis.  She did it again!

After the single title victory, Serena Williams proceeded to win her 5th Wimbledon doubles title with her sister, Venus Williams.   The sisters are exceptionally powerful and have never been beaten in doubles at Wimbledon.
Great champions are bred to be CONFIDENT;  because one cannot win without believing in herself or himself.  A lesson that can be learned from examining Serena's career is that being CONFIDENT is a key component to SUCCESS. 
Serena Williams looks FABULOUS!
