The Stunning Beauty of Serena Williams, Player of the Year 2015

— by Christopher Johnson —

I can’t understand why some folks don’t love or cherish Serena Williams.

She’s truly inspiring.

She transcends age, gender and race.

She’s the greatest tennis player of all time among women, and I suspect that she could probably beat John McEnroe and many men on the tour.

In my eyes, she’s stunningly beautiful and exuberant. Look closely at her intense, sincere eyes and her delightful smile.

She’s incredibly strong. She pounds out service aces and hammers hard flat returns, eating alive opponent’s second serves.

She’s warm, generous and playful.

She has a sly, subtle and ironic sense of humour.

There’s also much reason to love players such as Simona Halep and Ana Ivanovic.

But Serena is truly the greatest of all-time. She’s clearly a level above every other player on tour. She’s almost unbeatable.

She transcends the sport, as Roger Federer does in the men’s game.

Imagine if Arthur Ashe won as many titles as Serena.

They should name stadiums after her, and they probably will.

Her achievements are historic.

Generations from now, students will write essays about her.

A hundred years from now, when names of other athletes are forgotten, they’ll still talk about the African-American woman from Compton.
