Williams is no longer serving aces with that overpowering serve at the moment. Still, he is working on other money-making avenues like Serena Ventures, and she is about to embrace motherhood after revealing at the Met Gala she is expecting again.
The soon-to-be mother of two was in the building to announce that she would be teaming up with ESPN for a docuseries called In the Arena: Serena Williams.
Per a press release, it “will look back at her dominating tennis career over two decades. Several of Serena’s most significant Grand Slam tournaments and defining personal milestones are examined and decoded in detail as she simultaneously juggles the transformational experience of starting a family.”
