TOP 10 BEST SERENA WILLIAMS QUOTES

Discover the top 10 greatest Serena Williams quotes.

The success of every woman should be the inspiration to another. We should raise each other up. Make sure you’re very courageous: be strong, be extremely kind, and above all be humble.

Serena Williams

I really think a champion is defined not by their wins but by how they can recover when they fall

Serena Williams

With a defeat, when you lose, you get up, you make it better, you try again. That’s what I do in life, when I get down, when I get sick, I don’t want to just stop. I keep going and I try to do more. Everyone always says never give up but you really have to take that to heart and really do never definitely give up. Keep trying.

Serena Williams

You just have to prove to yourself that you can go out there and be the best that you can be and not prove anything to anyone.

Serena Williams

Luck has nothing to do with it, because I have spent many, many hours, countless hours, on the court working for my one moment in time, not knowing when it would come.

Serena Williams

I am lucky that whatever fear I have inside me, my desire to win is always stronger.

Serena Williams

I don’t like to lose-at anything… Yet I’ve grown most not from victories, but setbacks. If winning is God’s reward, then losing is how he teaches us.

Serena Williams

It’s me, and I love me. I learned to love me. I’ve been like this my whole life, and I embrace me. I love how I look. I love that I’m a full woman and I’m strong and I’m powerful and I’m beautiful at the same time. There’s nothing wrong with that.

Serena Williams 

I always believe I can beat the best, achieve the best. I always see myself in the top position.

Serena Williams

You have to believe in yourself when no one else does.

Serena Williams

 

 

Think of all the girls who could become top athletes but quit sports because they’re afraid of having too many defined muscles and being made fun of or called unattractive.

Serena Williams

Everyone’s dream can come true if you just stick to it and work hard.

Serena Williams

I think in life you should work on yourself until the day you die.

Serena Williams

I’ve always been a fighter and I’ve always fought through things my whole life.

Serena Williams

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 [Williams], 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.

Serena Williams

Since I don’t look like every other girl, it takes a while to be okay with that. To be different. But different is good.

Serena Williams

Growing up I wasn’t the richest, but I had a rich family in spirit. Standing here with 19 championships is something I never thought would happen. I went on a court just with a ball and a racket and with a hope.

Serena Williams

Am I the greatest? I don’t know. I’m the greatest that I can be.

Serena Williams

Honestly, I could get in a car accident today and never play tennis again, and then I wouldn’t have anything to fall back on. But fortunately enough, I do.

Serena Williams

Victory is very, very sweet. It tastes better than any dessert you’ve ever had.

Serena Williams

I went on the courts with just a ball and a racket and a hope…and that’s all I had.

Serena Williams

I just never give up. I fight to the end. You can’t go out and say, ‘I want a bag of never-say-die spirit.’ It’s not for sale. It has to be innate.

Serena Williams

You can be whatever size you are, and you can be beautiful both inside and out. We’re always told what’s beautiful and what’s not, and that’s not right.

Serena Williams 

If you can keep playing tennis when somebody is shooting a gun down the street, that’s concentration.

Serena Williams

It’s remarkable she [Venus Williams] plays at all, given her Sjögren’s syndrome [an autoimmune disorder that can cause joint pain]. She’s back, winning tournaments. She didn’t allow society to tell her, “You have this disease; you can’t do that anymore.” I look at her, like, “She’s not playing at 100 percent. You are. You don’t have excuses.” Knowing what she went through helped me try to be a more positive person.

Serena Williams

I think I can improve a lot. I think I can get a lot better. I feel like there’s much, much more I can do.

Serena Williams

If Plan A isn’t working, I have Plan B, Plan C, and even Plan D.

Serena Williams

If I’m winning, I have to act like I’m not bored. If it’s A tough match, I have to act like I’m having A good time. I’m a drama queen.

Serena Williams

I don’t know if I’ve had my share of drama, but I’ve definitely had my share of hard times.

Serena Williams

I love who I am, and I encourage other people to love and embrace who they are. But it definitely wasn’t easy – it took me a while.

Serena Williams

Legendary? I don’t know. I’m just Serena.

Serena Williams

Venus told me the other day that champions don’t get nervous in tight situations. That really helped me a lot. I decided I shouldn’t get nervous and just do the best I can.

Serena Williams

I’ve had to learn to fight all my life – got to learn to keep smiling. If you smile things will work out.

Nothing comes to a sleeper but a dream.

Serena Williams

My smile is my favorite part of my body. I think a smile can make your whole body.

Serena Williams

I always say if I play my best it’s difficult to beat me

Serena Williams

I’m a perfectionist. I’m pretty much insatiable. I feel there’s so many things I can improve on.

Serena Williams

I’m an athlete and I’m black, and a lot of black athletes go broke. I do not want to become a statistic, so maybe I overcompensate. But I’m paranoid. Oprah told me a long time ago, ‘You sign every check. Never let anyone sign any checks.’

Serena Williams

People see me on the court only as a superhero, grunting and winning. They think you’re a robot, and I’m not.

Serena Williams

I am not a robot. I have a heart and I bleed.

Serena Williams

When you lose, you get up, you make it better, you TRY AGAIN.

Serena Williams

I love “Phenomenal Woman.” The experiences she had of being African American in the U.S. – that itself is a task. I appreciate the hardships Maya Angelou went through for our generation. I’m super influenced by the black people that paved the way for us.

Serena Williams

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.

Serena Williams

I’m Serena Williams on the court, but away I have so many different names. I call myself Butterfly.

Serena Williams

I don’t have anything to prove ever, ever in my life. If I have something to prove, what does that mean for everyone else? And I think everyone should have that attitude.

Serena Williams

I’m a high-performance athlete: I’m running, I’m sprinting, I’m sliding, I’m doing pretty much everything and the last thing I want to worry about is my chest. I want to just worry about playing the sport at the highest level that I can.

Serena Williams

I’ve been involved with Berlei for almost my whole career. I actually discovered them well over 10 years ago, probably 2002 at least. My mom introduced me. She said, “Listen, you should try these bras.” And I was like, “Really?” So I tried it and since then I’ve never worn another bra.

Serena Williams

I think you have to love yourself before you fall in love. I’m still learning to love myself.

Serena Williams

I never left my roots. You can identify me as someone that didn’t become high and mighty. Humility is a defining [trait] all of us can forever learn, and I try to be as humble as anyone can be.

Serena Williams

Someone like Billie Jean King is completely my idol.
