Williams also discussed how many people don’t see her other side – Serena Williams in everyday life and not on the tennis court

« I feel like I’m two people I feel like I’m on the pitch, I’m Serena Williams and everyone knows Then I feel like the moment I come off the pitch, I’m a different animal ”she said“ I’m really super feminine and I’m really sweet and sensitive to people who don’t like me because I feel like I still want people to like me But at the same time, in the field, I don’t care what people feel «
