The gifts keep rolling in for Serena Williams. Following Serena’s record breaking 23rd Grand Slam title, the tennis superstar was gifted 2 pairs of custom 23 Air Jordans by Michael Jordan. Serena also got something special from the WWE – a custom plated WWE belt with her name on it.
Triple H, wrestler and WWE executive, hailed Serena’s record breaking win by tweeting out a WWE title with custom plates to the newly crowned Australian Open champion.
He tweeted the American GOAT an image of a championship belt with Serena Williams emblazoned on the sides. He also added in his tweet that “she is a record-breaking. ground-breaking. barrier breaking. history-making champion.”
Serena’s record 23rd Grand slam title is her 7th Australian Open title, and the win ensured that she moved back up to number one in the world. The win was also special for family reasons. It was her 7th win in 9 all-Williams Grand Slam finals.
She was also roundly congratulated all over the world for her historic achievement. Angelique Kerber, who is currently the world’s number one player until the rankings are updated, used her social media to congratulate Serena. She congratulated Williams for the amazing achievement, as well her sister, for her part in the historic final.
Serena didn’t hog all the spotlight though. She showered her sister with praise following her win. Venus had not been in a major final for over seven years, so it was also a special night for her as well.
Using her Instagram account, Serena posted a picture in which both sisters were hugging each other along with a sweet caption that read “the top is never lonely when your best friend is there.”
