Serena Williams Featured On April Cover Of Vogue


Serena Williams is gracing the cover of April’s issue of Vogue.  The interview features the 33-year-old’s thoughts on returning to Indian Wells after 14 years, friendship and competition in women’s tennis, and helping tennis rival Caroline Wozniacki heal after heartbreak


On Serena’s Role Helping Caroline Heal After Broken Engagement:

“My phone was going crazy,” Wozniacki remembers. “But I didn’t want to talk to anyone.” Most people got the message and stopped trying. But Serena Williams isn’t most people.

“I kept calling,” Williams says unapologetically.

Wozniacki smiles at the memory. “First she texted, ‘If you don’t pick up, I am going to fly to Monaco.’ And then, ‘If you don’t answer the door, I am going to knock it down.’ So I thought, OK, I better answer the phone. And I am so glad I did. She wasn’t pitying me, like a lot of people were. I mean, it’s not like anyone died. I was in shock, but she was really helpful because she had been through it before. She didn’t sugarcoat it, and she didn’t look down on me. She was really there for me when I needed her the most, and that’s why I think our friendship is so strong now.”

“I was impressed with how strong she was,” Williams says. “And you know, there will be other engagement parties.” She pauses a beat. “Many.”

“Let’s just put an end to this myth that women players cannot be friends,” Williams says. “We can!”
