Serena Williams Shades Body Shamers: 'I've Got Grand Slams To Win'
Serena Williams chatted with Robin Roberts on "Good Morning America" prior to setting out on her quest to win the Grand Slam at the US Open. The world No. 1 looked back at her first win in New York in 1999, talked about not feeling the pressure this year at Flushing Meadows, and even took on her body shamers.
Watch for no other reason than this absolutely incredible quote on her body image that everyone should print out and post on a wall to look at every day for inspiration: "It's me, and I love me. I've learned to love me. I've been like this my whole life and I embrace me. I love how I look. I am a full woman and I'm strong, and I'm powerful, and I'm beautiful at the same time."
While she clearly pays the bullies no mind, she perhaps threw the ultimate shade by putting the negative comments in perspective. "I don't have time to be brought down, I've got too many things to do. I have Grand Slams to win, I have people to inspire, and that's what I'm here for."
Preach, Serena. PREACH.
