After nearly dying in 2011 from a pulmonary embolism, Serena Williams has come back and dominated women’s tennis. By winning the 2015 Australian Open, she’s now won all 4 Grand Slams again, as well as an Olympic Gold Medal, after nearly dying. She’s the epitome of determination, athleticism, and resiliency.
15 year old Catherine Bellis, who sits at #1208 on the WTA rankings, upset the 12th seeded Dominka Cibulkova in the first round of the US Open. Bellis is the youngest girl to win a US Open match since 1996.
