“I’m so used to it,” Serena told ESPN. “And now I embrace it and appreciate it more. When I go out, I’m ready. I remember when everyone wanted your autograph. Now everyone wants a picture. The camera phone is the best thing and the worst thing ever invented. Now I have it down.”

She continued, saying: “I wear sleeves because of my arms. That’s what I realized gets recognized the fastest, so I always wear something long-sleeved, something really loose and a nice hat.”
