Serena won her first Grand Slam at 17. She’s part of the only pair to win a Career Doubles Golden Slam.

She was the 5th woman to hold all four Grand Slam singles titles simultaneously.

She was the only player in history to win three Grand Slam singles titles by beating top two ranked players.

She has the most hardcourt grand slam singles titles. She’s the oldest player to hold all four Grand Slam singles titles.

She’s the first player ever to win 80+ matches at 3 of the 4 grand slam events. Has “Roger” done that?

Serena greatest athlete ever! Definitely no one close in tennis.

don't let the NWHL die!!

the NWHL is the first professional women’s hockey league in the US to pay its players (even the CWHL is still unpaid), starting at a $10,000 minimum. now in its second season, the salary had to be reduced to $5,000 minimum in order to sustain the league.

please don’t let this league die. women’s sports is finally starting to take hold, and it’s up to the fans to keep it going

I realize I grew up in a very privileged situation and I think instead of me just being happy for myself, I want to give that to people that don’t necessarily get that opportunity.
