In 2017 at the age of 35, Serena Williams is once again ranked the #1 Female Tennis Player in The World. This unthinkable achievement at this point in her career is a testament to her greatness. Serena was ranked #1 in the World for the first time in 2002 and 15 years later she is crowned again. I will not waste time listing her numerous and legendary accolades as you can Google that if you’re not aware. I will ask for those who are aware of Serena Williams’s career if you feel she’s one of the Greatest Athletes’ of this generation. I would also ask if you believe she is one of the greatest in American History, regardless of gender or sport. My Verdict: You can place Serena Williams side by side with ANY athlete, even Jordan, Ruth or Ali. Her resume is absolutely amazing. Yes, I would say even more amazing than Lebron James and Kobe Bryant.
