What Serena Williams eats to maintain her incredible physique

What Serena Williams eats to maintain her incredible physique

Serena Williams is undoubtedly one of the greatest tennis players who ever lived.

There are few who have combined her incredible fighting spirit, will to win and mastery of the technique of the game to such an extent. In fact, she may well be in a league of her own in that regard.

Serena has won an astonishing 23 grand slams in her career - an open era record - and is second only to Margaret Court (24) in the all time singles majors list.

It may be hard to believe, seeing as she has barely seemed to age a day during her years in the spotlight, but Serena is now 38 years old, and has a child, daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr.

Yet the tennis champ is still serving looks off the court, and recently took to Instagram to share some vacation snaps with her millions of fans.

The 38-year-old tennis ace also shared some other snaps from the Yacht break, much to the delight of her fans.

Gigi Hadid wrote simply, "Yes." while others flocked to the comments section to praise the mom for her awesome snaps.

So how does she maintain her incredible physique? Well, through her enduring commitment to being one of the foremost athletes in the world, obviously, but Serena has previously given us some clues on what she eats, too.

She told Bon Apetite;

“Everyone loves my roasted chicken with garlic; for a minute, it was my turkey tacos. Now it’s vegan sushi. I just love to cook!”

Per Yahoo, she also advised that she keeps many healthy options in the fridge, such as coconut water, ginger, loads of veggies and wheat grass.

Yet despite all this, and her incredible physique, Serena says she hasn't always been full of body confidence. She told ESPN's The Undefeated;

“There was a time when I didn’t feel incredibly comfortable about my body because I felt like I was too strong, then I had to take a second and think, ‘well, who says I’m too strong?’

“This body has enabled me to be the greatest player that I can be.”

And that is, without doubt, one of the greatest tennis players of all time.
