Serena Williams Has a Poster of Herself in Her Home

"I never touched it" she began, referencing her first big time payment.

Serena Williams has found a new way to show that you love yourself, and perhaps we should all follow suit. "Looking back, I'm like, wow, we lived in a two-bedroom house with seven people".

Although Serena Williams is one of the world's highest paid athletes, the tennis star has never let money get in the way of her career. They were like, 'I think you need to come in for this.' So I ended up going inside'.

The mum-to-be told Vanity Fair that she had been convinced by her friend to take a pregnancy test, saying: "I'll take it just because (a) to prove you wrong and (b) because it's fun, whatever".

Indeed, she wasn't actually aware of how the funds were even distributed to winning players.

"Not once did I think about a check", Williams told sports business manager Maverick Carter.

"Since I was a teenager I've made every financial decision in my life, and I've had to learn how to make good ones and how to make bad ones, and it helps you make better ones", she said.

'At the end of the year, the tournament directors would literally hand me the check because I would never go get it'.

Of course Serena is now taking a break from the sport, as she is expecting her first child in September.

They've played each other in four Wimbledon singles finals, and won six titles in doubles alongside each other at the All-England Club - so Serena Williams isn't used to being without her sister Venus during the London fortnight.
