As you all know I'm big fan of Serena Williams - all that she has accomplished and the extent of her talent and drive is second to none! She's undoubtably the best of all time.
Last night when she lost the Australian open she showed what a true champion she is. The grace in which she lost, how sincerely happy she was for Kerber to win her first major, at 28 years old, and the class in which she spoke of her opponent was inspiring and made me respect her all the more.
Two lessons to be learned from last night:
1: NEVER give up on your dreams - as Kerber didn't and now her life long dream of becoming a Grand Slam Champion has been realized.
2: Be gracious in defeat and know that you showed up and gave the best you had.
