Serena Williams Discusses Drake US Open Backlash in 'Glamour'

Serena Williams shows off her body in a swimsuit on the cover of Glamour magazine’s July 2016 issue.

Here’s what the 34-year-old tennis superstar had to share:

On being an athlete in her 30s: “Who says that your thirties is when you’re supposed to be done? I would like to know who made that rule! I was talking to my mom one time, like, ‘Gosh, I’m 30.’ And she’s like, ‘In your thirties you’re even stronger than in your twenties.’ I didn’t believe her, but I have played better in my thirties. And I played pretty well in my twenties, don’t get me wrong! But my consistency is better, my momentum is better, my wins are quicker.”

On Twitter blaming Drake for her US Open loss last year: “I don’t think that was fair. I’m the one who’s playing, who’s making mistakes or making winners. I’m not one to blame anyone else for anything. And I don’t think anyone else should either. I played a really good opponent that day. And I wasn’t at my best.”

On the wage gap in sports: “These sports have a lot of work to do. And I really hope that I can be helpful in that journey because I do believe that women deserve the same pay. We work just as hard as men do. I’ve been working, playing tennis, since I was three years old. And to be paid less just because of my sex—it doesn’t seem fair. Will I have to explain to my daughter that her brother is gonna make more money doing the exact same job because he’s a man? If they both played sports since they were three years old, they both worked just as hard, but because he’s a boy, they’re gonna give him more money? Like, how am I gonna explain that to her? In tennis we’ve had great pioneers that paved the way—including Venus, who fought so hard for Wimbledon to pay women the same prize money they pay men, and Billie Jean King, who is one of the main reasons Title IX exists.”

On Zika concerns for the Olympics next month: “I’m not taking Zika lightly. Especially being older, I definitely am going everywhere protected. I’m protecting myself.”

Serena Williams Ate Her Dog's Food & Wound Up in the Bathroom - Watch Now!

Serena Williams just shared an intense story on Snapchat after trying a bite of her Yorkie’s dog food while at her hotel in Rome, Italy.

“So they have this menu for my dog, because Chip left his food, can you imagine?” the 34-year-old tennis star said in her story. “And I promise you, I was like, ‘That looks so good.’ It was fresh greens and boiled chicken and beef and it was seared tenderly. It was just perfection. That looks like the best food. Better than my food.”

“So today, I was like, I might wanna taste his food, so I order him the salmon and rice because I eat salmon and rice. Before you judge me, look at it. It’s kinda all mixed together. C’mon, it looks good…I put some in his bowl. I’m like, what the heck, I’m gonna try a piece. So I ate a spoonful. Don’t judge me, I ate a spoonful!” Serena continued. “Let’s fast forward two hours. I just ran to the toilet like…I thought I was gonna pass out. It did taste weird. I force-swallowed it.”

“I don’t think it’s consumable for humans. They should’ve wrote that! So now I feel really sick. It was just a spoonful. I really don’t feel so good…I guess tomorrow when I step on the court I’m gonna look svelte,” Serena added. LOL!

“I have known the director since I was like nine years old. I know Beyoncé pretty well, so they were like, ‘We would love for you to be in this particular song. It’s about strength and it’s about courage and that’s what we see you as,” Serena revealed (via NY Daily News).

“She told me that she just wants me to dance, like just be really free and just dance like nobody’s looking and go all out,” Serena added. “So that wasn’t easy in the beginning, but then it got easier… I thought that particular song on the visual album was really a strong song, and it was also really fun at the same time.”

Tom Brady & Serena Williams Team Up To Raise Awareness On Youth Sports Funding Crisis!

Tom Brady flashes a big smile as he sits on stage while attending the world film premiere and panel discussion of Keepers of the Game held during the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival at The Conrad Hotel on Tuesday (April 19) in New York City.

The 38-year-old New England Patriots player was joined by Serena Williams, Rob Manfred, Kevin Plank, Tim Finchem, Jon Gruden, Jessica Mendoza, Hannah Storm, Mark King and John Skipper.

The event centered on DICK’S Sporting Goods Foundation and raising awareness for the current youth sports funding crisis.

Keepers of the Game highlights the struggles and perseverance of the Salmon River girl’s high school lacrosse team from the Akwesasne Reservation in upstate New York, the birthplace of lacrosse, as the community wrestles with the sport’s traditional role as a medicine game only played by men versus the opportunities sports can provide the girls.
