First Class All the Way

Ya really gotta love Serena Williams.
First of all, some congrats: By reaching two Australian Open Finals she broke golf star Annika Sorenstam’s record for career prize money by a female athlete with nearly $23 million. 

That’s even if she loses in both the singles and the doubles (with her sister Venus).

When reporters told her about her record-breaking mark, Serena reportedly spoke about her first prize-winning check of $240 that she got from an 1995 Canadian event.

Having money like that must be really nice. If you ever wanted to know what motivates homegirl to win, well,  let’s just say that in this case she certainly wasn’t humming Beyonce’s “Upgrade U” as she fought through her quarterfinal match…She’s a long way from 240 bucks…
Like I said, you really gotta love this chick…!
