Serena Williams Touching Letter To Her Mum Shades Maria Sharapova


Serena Williams yesterday wrote a touching
letter to her mom and published it publicly
on Reddit .

The letter praises the 23 Grand Title
champion’s mother for being a role model
and talks about how excited she is to have
a daughter, but it does something else.

**Full excerpts of letter:


Dear Mom,
You are one of the strongest women I
know. 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 . It has
been said that 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 ) .

But mom , I ’m not sure how you did
not go off on every single reporter,
person, announcer and quite frankly,
hater, who was too ignorant to
understand the power of a black
woman.
I am proud we were able to show
them what some women look like .
We don’t all look the same . We are
curvy, strong , muscular , tall , small,
just to name a few , and all the same :
we are women and proud !
You are so classy, I only wish I could
take your lead . I am trying , though ,
and God is not done with me yet . I
have a LONG way to go , but thank
you.

Thank you for being the role model I
needed to endure all the hardships
that I now regard as a challenges–
ones that I enjoy . I hope to teach my
baby Alexis Olympia the same , and
have the same fortitude you have
had.
Promise me , Mom , that you will
continue to help. I ’m not sure if I am
as meek and strong as you are yet . I
hope to get there one day . I love you
dearly.

Your youngest of five ,
Serena
