There is no doubt Serena Williams is by far and away the most dominant female tennis player in the history of the sport.
The 34-year-old has 21 Grand Slam singles titles to her name, 69 WTA titles overall and $75,360,291 in career prize money. But you don't even need those numbers to really appreciate Serena's greatness.
All you need to do to understand the dominance of the No. 1 ranked female player in the world is simply turn on the television and watch her play. When she's on her game, which is virtually every time she takes the court, Serena dominates whoever is put in front of her.
She dictates the pace and tempo of the match, is relentless in her pursuit of every ball and, just when you think you have an edge in a rally, Serena puts away a winner that makes you wonder why she didn't just do that in the first place.
The burning question that's been on everyone's minds for years is: How does she do it?
What percentage is God-given talent? What part is tireless work ethic? And, perhaps the thing most fans are curious about, what part is her diet?
Well, there's no doubt about the God-given talent or the tireless work ethic, but it may surprise you to learn Serena Williams doesn't always eat the healthiest things on earth.
Now, before y'all crucify me, let me be clear: I'm fairly confident Serena Williams sticks to a very healthy routine a majority of the time, but take a quick look, and you'll see she also likes to enjoy the same delicious treats as everyone else.
Not only does Serena prove you can cheat on your diet every once in a while and still compete, she proves you can actually be the best.
