I was looking at my daughter (OMG, yes, I have a daughter 😳) and she has my arms and legs! My exact same strong, muscular, powerful, sensational arms and body. I don't know how I would react if she has to go through what I've gone through since I was a 15 year old and even to this day.

“I’ve been called man because I appeared outwardly strong,” Serena continues. “It has been said that I use drugs (No, I have always had far too much integrity to behave dishonestly in order to gain an advantage).”

“It has been said I don't belong in women's sports – that I belong in men's – because I look stronger than many other women do. (No, I just work hard and I was born with this badass body and proud of it).”
