Why, Even After Losing, Serena Williams Is Still The Champ!



If you’re going to pick a woman of the year, it should undoubtedly be Serena Williams. She is the G.O.A.T! And GQ recognized this by bestowing upon her the honor, alongside a few of Hollywood’s hottest men.

As the men’s mag put it:

A newly minted Hollywood star, a tennis legend, an acting god who just directed his first movie, and the super villain who keeps rocking the box office: All four are GQ’s 23rd-annual Men of the Year issue honorees.

And while Henry Golding, Jonah Hill, and Michael B. Jordan are all great in their own right, it is Serena who steals this show!

Following her devastating, and controversial, loss in the U.S. Open finals, Serena shows she’s still a champion on-and-off the court. The way she handled herself after losing to Naomi Osaka, her candid openness about postpartum life and motherhood, the way she still goes into bestmode on the court — literally, everything Williams does is on superhero status! And GQ made sure to capture it all by naming her “Woman of the Year” and allowing Serena to share her truth in her on words. The article will be available on Thursday, but here’s the teaser:

No matter how you cut it, Serena Williams had a remarkable year. Jeanne-Marie Laskas visits the G.O.A.T. at her Florida home to hear about the U.S. Open moment heard around the world, along with Serena’s plans for the future, her thoughts on Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court appointment, and what it’s like to be a black woman in America in 2018. All that, plus GQ worked up a special surprise cover collaboration with Virgil Abloh—the Off-White designer behind her coolest on-court looks in 2018—featuring his signature quotation marks in his own handwriting.

The anticipation for the article is obviously palpable, but can we take a moment to revel in this cover?! Stunning!
