“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.
