Serena won Wimbledon, beating Federer, Milos Raonic and Roger Federer to become the first tennis player to win three majors in one season.
She also became the first woman to win the Australian Open title.
In an article in The New York Times, Serena wrote: “My first year at the Australian Opens was a wild rollercoaster ride.
The biggest moment of my career was my first Wimbledon final, a 7-5 win over Andy Murray.
Then came the Australian women’s final, and a 2-1 loss to Venus Williams.
Then it was a disappointing end to my Australian Open career.”

But she was not done there.
Serena, who had played her entire career for the US Tennis Association (USTA), said: “The tennis world is full of people who have a long, long way to go, and they deserve a second chance.”
The Serena Woods Tennis Academy has been working to bring women’s tennis to the US for nearly 40 years.
It is currently one of the world’s top schools, offering more than 600 courses and over 400 scholarships.
In the latest edition of the programme, USTA presented a special prize package to Serena’s USTA Tennis Academy.
The prize package includes an opportunity to receive a prize of $50,000 for the best player of her year, plus travel to the Grand Slams and other events.
The Sereana Woods Tennis academy said in a statement: “Serena is a true champion who will continue to represent her country in all aspects of the game.
We thank her for all the hard work she’s done for us over the years.”
The prize money will go to the athletes and the schools, including USTA’s US Tennis Academy in Melbourne, which provides tennis instruction and clinics for girls and women.
It will also go to support the sport in disadvantaged communities and to students.
The programme will be hosted by the USTA Board of Directors.
Serendipity and the Serena-USTA relationship ‘special’ For Serena and her father, Tom Woods, this is a special moment.
The pair have been together for over 20 years.
“I had a great time when I played for the Australian Women’s Tennis Association,” he told ABC News.
“We were always together and I felt a special connection to the sport.”
It’s a special relationship for the two of us and for the sport of tennis.
“USTA has a history of working with the tennis world.
It hosted the World Youth Tennis Championships in the US in the late 1990s, which was the first time the tournament was held outside of Australia.
“It’s an amazing sport, with great talent, and we’re blessed to have great support from the UST.” “
There’s no doubt that the US is the greatest country in the world for tennis,” Tom Woods said.
“It’s an amazing sport, with great talent, and we’re blessed to have great support from the UST.”
Serena said she hoped to bring the tennis community a better understanding of women’s sport.
“When you have such a huge amount of talent, you don’t have to look further than tennis,” she said.
“There are women who don’t even know what the word ‘sport’ is, but they love to play it.”
That’s something I really want to bring to people.
I hope people will see that tennis is about women, and that it is a sport for everyone.
“Serendips first tournament, US Open at Melbourne Serendi is the first-ever US Open in Melbourne.
It’s also the first major that USTA will run for a female.
In a video statement, Serendipte said: “[The US Open] is an amazing opportunity to get to know the community and to meet a whole new group of people.”
We know that women’s professional tennis has been the fastest growing sport in the country.
The USTA is proud to be a partner of US Tennis and to host our first event for female players, in Melbourne.”
Serenne is the sixth woman to be inducted into the US Olympic Hall of Fame.
She is also the youngest US tennis player, with her career taking place in 2008. Read more
