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.

This is what male reporters often don’t seem to understand: Women feel like people. We don’t think constantly about being women. It’s natural for us. We can even forget about it for long stretches of time.

Dima and Lama Hattab (b. 1980) are twin sisters from Jordan who became the first women from the Middle East to participate in the famous race Marathon des Sables, a six-day ultramarathon in the Sahara Desert. They also contributed greatly to promoting female participation in high-performance sports.

They first participated in the 1999 Dead Sea ultramarathon, where they finished 3rd and 4th. In 2002 they organised the first Jabal Ishrin charity race in Jordan, going through the Wade Rum desert valley, with all proceeds going towards charitable causes.
