Russian tennis player Petrova believes that Serena Williams changed the course of history


Russian tennis player Nadezhda Petrova believes that American Serena Williams changed the course of history in tennis.

“My whole career has been parallel to Serena. Of course, it was very difficult for her to resist, but she, despite her power, determination, anger on the court, is actually a very good, kind and friendly person. And she, of course, changed the course of history a bit: she achieved a colossal number of victories – both Olympic medals and Grand Slams, the only one among both men and women to have a career Golden Slam. But, in addition to these merits, she always did a lot of charity work, found herself outside of tennis, opening a line of clothing and jewelry. So, we can say that she is an entrepreneur in her own way. She never stood still, in addition to tennis, she received two more educations, ” quotes Petrova as saying.

In early September, 41-year-old Williams ended her career after losing to Australian Ayla Tomlyanovic 5:7, 7:6 (7:4), 1:6 in the 3rd round match of the US Open.

Serena Williams won the Olympic Games four times (2000, 2008 and twice in 2012).
