Serena Williams Wrote Inspiring Letter About Sexism In Sports: 'We Must Continue To Dream Big'

Serena Williams has written a powerful open letter “to all incredible women who strive for excellence”!

In the letter, which was included as part of Porter Magazine‘s Incredible Women of 2016 issue reprinted by the Guardian, the 35-year-old tennis pro speaks about her dreams of being the best tennis player in the world and not just the “best female” tennis player.

“When I was growing up, I had a dream. I’m sure you did, too. My dream wasn’t like that of an average kid, my dream was to be the best tennis player in the world. Not the best ‘female’ tennis player in the world,” Serena expressed in the letter.

“As we know, women have to break down many barriers on the road to success. One of those barriers is the way we are constantly reminded we are not men, as if it is a flaw,” Serena added. “People call me one of the ‘world’s greatest female athletes’. Do they say LeBron [James] is one of the world’s best male athletes? Is Tiger? Federer? Why not? They are certainly not female. We should never let this go unchallenged. We should always be judged by our achievements, not by our gender.”

Last night (November 29), Serena posed alongside Katie Holmes as they attended the Audemars Piguet Art Commission Presents: ‘Reconstruction of the Universe’ By Sun Xun as part of Art Basel in Miami Beach, Fla.

Serena Williams Withdraws from WTA Finals Due to Shoulder Injury

Serena Williams strikes a pose while spending some time at Magic Kingdom Park on Sunday (October 16) in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.

The 35-year-old tennis star showed off her bow and arrow skills in a fun photo she took with the character Princess Merida from Disney’s Brave.

Serena had planned on vacationing at Walt Disney World before resuming training for the season-ending WTA Finals in Singapore.

However, it was recently announced that Serena will not be able to take part in these finals due to a shoulder injury.

“It’s been a really tough year for me,” Serena said in a video message on the WTA’s Twitter (below). “I’ve been dealing so much with these shoulder injuries. My doctor insists that I stay home and heal it … so I can have a chance to play next year.”

Serena Williams Speaks About Her Body & Sexuality with 'The Fader'

Serena Williams shows off her amazing muscular body on the cover of The Fader magazine’s new issue.

Here’s what the 35-year-old tennis star had to share with the mag:

On her advice for women speaking up against discrimination: “It doesn’t matter your background or where you’re coming from. You can speak to your neighbor, you can speak to your friend about how you feel about something. You can post on social media. I think it’s really important, first of all, to realize that it doesn’t matter if you’re living where I’m from, Compton, or if you’re living somewhere else, that’s what makes the world go round. Each person is just as important as the next. Each person has a voice.”

On the public opinion of her sexuality: “Yeah, you know, it was she’s too strong, and then she’s too sexy, and then she’s too strong again. So I’m like, Well, can you choose one? But either way, I don’t care which one they choose. I’m me and I’ve never changed who I am. I actually do dance a lot, so when that opportunity to appear in Lemonade came up and we were working with choreographers, just trying to figure out what to do, it was really kind of organic.”

On the public opinion of her body: “People have been talking about my body for a really long time. Good things, great things, negative things. People are entitled to have their opinions, but what matters most is how I feel about me, because that’s what’s going to permeate the room I’m sitting in. It’s going to make you feel that I have confidence in myself whether you like me or not, or you like the way I look or not, if I do. That’s the message I try to tell other women and in particular young girls. You have to love you, and if you don’t love you no one else will. And if you do love you, people will see that and they’ll love you too.”
