  • What..she is back.
    Who.
    SHE is a rocket
    We play with her
    Too late..world..
    Green continent Africa.
    Yes Africa won't enter west..you please stop bear grills etc prevent animal rapes…porn

  • Surprised she didn’t thank or mention her father… thought he was instrumental in her success… I do LOVE Serena and Venus. They are talented, driven, beautiful and intelligent women, admirable on all levels and she certainly deserved this (and more). I do also LOVE Richard Williams and can’t help but feel some type of way that she did not acknowledge him in her speech… perhaps she forgot 🤷🏾‍♀️

  • Venus presented the award to her. So please guys go to the first video and see. Stop Saying doesn't make sense.

  • Serena is GOAT. I love me some Serena. To touch her hand would be most wonderful experience in world. I shook Magic's, Montona,'s, Henry Arron's hand but I would love love to touch Serena's hand. Serena always looks super lovely. Serena brings slice and life to a sometimes slow WTA. Serena is as close to PERFECT as humanly possible….Serena is GOAT.

  • This vedio made me cry…Selena you are truly awesome…21 titles and still going…best sentence i ever heard..hats off to you mam

  • She was number 7 and some did not believe that she can be number 1, she was discriminated due to her skin color … WHAT? We are not in the 40s, 50,s, 60s. I hear so many Black people still using the race card again and again, even Serena Williams. Shame on her. She is number 1 because of her father and her hard work period. Black people get over what have slavery times. Were are in a new age and anyone can now be number 1. Quit providing the younger generation false narrative to motivate them. Other Blacks are not progress because they are lazy. One does not need to blame racism it's because they are LAZY. Serena W. is number one because she is not LAZY.

  • You may write me down in history
    With your bitter, twisted lies,
    You may trod me in the very dirt
    But still, like dust, I'll rise.

    Does my sassiness upset you?
    Why are you beset with gloom?
    ’Cause I walk like I've got oil wells
    Pumping in my living room.

    Just like moons and like suns,
    With the certainty of tides,
    Just like hopes springing high,
    Still I'll rise.

    Did you want to see me broken?
    Bowed head and lowered eyes?
    Shoulders falling down like teardrops,
    Weakened by my soulful cries?

    Does my haughtiness offend you?
    Don't you take it awful hard
    ’Cause I laugh like I've got gold mines
    Diggin’ in my own backyard.

    You may shoot me with your words,
    You may cut me with your eyes,
    You may kill me with your hatefulness,
    But still, like air, I’ll rise.

    Does my sexiness upset you?
    Does it come as a surprise
    That I dance like I've got diamonds
    At the meeting of my thighs?

    Out of the huts of history’s shame
    I rise
    Up from a past that’s rooted in pain
    I rise
    I'm a black ocean, leaping and wide,
    Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.

    Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
    I rise
    Into a daybreak that’s wondrously clear
    I rise
    Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
    I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
    I rise
    I rise
    I rise.

  • Is it me or did she not say anything about Richard her father? Didn't recall hearing Venus either in her segment.

  • VENUS & SERENA ARE MALES WHO HAVE BEEN SATANICALLY RITUALISTICALLY SACRIFICED TO BE WOMEN. DO NOT BE DECEIVED. THEY HAD NO CHOICE, IT WAS DONE TO THEM AS CHILDREN. SERENA IS HAVE A MENTAL BREAK DOWN, HE IS NOT HAVING A BABY. HIS HANDLERS ARE FRENZIED, AND ARE ATTEMPTING TO PROGRAM HIS MIND FURTHER. HE IS REBELING. VENUS ACCEPTS HIS FATE.

  • Me me me…its all about me……..I'm such a great sportsperson. By the way, me…me me me me me. And when I loose and act unsportsmanlike and use doping drugs don't judge me because I'm black and a woman

    you have no ideal what real beauty and elegance is ? so let me tell you, it's someone that has gorgeous Brown skin, who doesn't have to lay in that hot ASS Sun, it's someone, who is curvy and has a real booty, no plastic or injections, it's someone who has her own breast, no implants, it's someone who has full lips, to kiss the right way, because you guys don't have lips, so you get injections, that's real beauty, ms. Serena Williams, all NATURAL, you don't have to fix anything, and on top of that she's rich and CLASSY, now I think you have an ideal of what real beauty is
    .

  • Love Serena, but she did not slay this speech as some outlets have reported. Sorry, she is too full of herself and a lot of what she says doesn't really make sense. Sorry Serena, but you are no trailblazer. Don't know what you are going on about ? Also a quick look at the sport's illustrated list Mary Lou Retton, Bonnie Blair and US Women's soccer team – where all named sportsperson of the year since Mary Decker.
