Celebs Show Serena Williams Love Despite Grand Slam Loss
The 33-year-old tennis player was defeated by Italian player Roberta Vinci in the semi-finals of the 2015 U.S. Open on Friday (September 11) in New York City.
Serena would have made history as the first tennis player, male of female, to win a grand slam since Steffi Graff did it in 1988 had she won the tournament.

It's possible to appreciate people for earning a place in the final,and at the same moment wonder how it will affect bottom line/interest..

I look up to her so much. Winning or in defeat. I would trade 10 of my good days for one bad day of Serena's
