Is Serena Williams The Greatest Female Athlete Of All Time?

Serena Williams By Brandon Simmons

When anybody mentions the word, “winning” it can be no surprise that Lebron James and Serena Williams both come to everyone’s mind and this year was no different. According to, Williams and James were both named, respectively, Female and Male Athletes of the Year by the Associated Press. Not only did both win with landslide numbers but won convincingly in their respective sports by winning championships.

This year Serena won a 5th US Open championship as well as a 2nd French open title. According to the Women’s Tennis Association, her winning percentage was .951, the best since Stefi Graff in 1989 and her 11 titles was the most since Martina Hingis had 12 in 1997. Executive director of the U.S. Tennis Association Gordon Smith is not surprised at Williams’ accomplishment and feels she is quite deserving.

“Her year this year? Unforgettable,” said Smith. “She continues to be an inspiration to American tennis.”

The word “inspiration” may seem fitting for both superstars especially for Lebron who believes this award will propel him to heights beyond basketball.

“I believe my calling is much higher than being a basketball player. I can inspire people,” said James in response to winning the award. “Youth is huge to me. If I can get kids to look at me as a role model, as a leader, a superhero … those things mean so much, and that’s what I think I was built for.”

Another term that can be associated with James is “history” in which he made it by becoming only the third basketball player to win AP Male Athlete of the Year. Just like Williams, he served a dominant performance in this year as well. In addition to winning his 4th MVP in the 2012 season, he led his Miami Heat team to a third straight NBA Finals and a second straight championship. He currently has his team in second place in the Eastern Conference and favored to win a third straight championship.


Brandon Simmons is a graduate student at Texas State University seeking a Master’s in New Media. In addition to writing for BOSS he has a personal blog entitled DumbOut Domain in which he writes about sports and entertainment in his own view and records his own rap music.

    When I left an earlier comment I was not aware of the Serena article and of lebrons greater goals . Both of these are my champions far beyond what they accomplished but more so how they did so in an arena of “fame” that destroys more than it elevates. Tvb

    Why do we always want to believe a current athlete is “the best of all time”?

    Don’t talk about greatest women athletes of all time without mentioning Babe Didrikson Zaharias:

    Serena Williams is the best female athlete of ALL TIME. She is remarkable and she continues to inspire and motivate with her spectacular tennis. Her fortitude, strength, and perseverance to continually win championships is astonishing. She is “Miss Tennis”. She exudes ability, talent and confidence. Yes, past and present, Serena Williams is the greatest female athlete of all time.

    Without a doubt she is not only the greatest female athlete of all times but she is the greatest female tennis player to ever play the game of tennis that’s why White America hates her guts. And I love it I hope they choke to death on their hatred.

    Serena gives hope to serious Black women. She`s has a skill, is rich and at the top of her profession. Daddy Williams made sure that she and Venus, did not end up welfare baby mommas with substance abuse issues…….Bless you Serena!
