Published

Athletes like Serena Williams play a key role in a country like the United States Of America. Especially at times like these, when the death of an African American man called George Floyd has racially polarised the nation.

 

Serena is one of those people who gives hope to her community. Not just that, she actively takes steps to help people from her community in getting up to their feet. As she knows, the battle against racism has to be fought even at the highest levels

 

Athletes like Serena Williams play a key role in a country like the United States Of America. Especially at times like these, when the death of an African American man called George Floyd has racially polarized the nation.

What did Serena Williams say?

Serena talked about the difficulties of getting investment capital. As an African American, it’s all the more lacking.

“How are we ever going to see a difference if all the money is going to the same type of person. Also, people of color get even less than that. I mean, they’re at like 0.2. I mean, me being black, I want to talk about that. I don’t know if I can change it. But we are going to start a fund and we are going to try and change that.”

Serena can definitely bring about a change in the equations. In fact, she already is to a great extent. Her venture firm called Serena Ventures invests in minority businesses to help them get on par with the business environment. That’s how the success of one person from a marginalized section helps to uplift all the others. Serena Williams is a prime example of this phenomenon. Hopefully, she will continue to help the African American community across the nation even in these times of great distress for the country.

Rafa Nadal and I have had our differences, but he’s an absolute champion,’ says Nick Kyrgios

Nick Kyrgios admits that he and Rafa Nadal have ‘had their differences’ over the years but he can’t help but admire his achievements.

Nadal won his 20th Grand Slam crown at Roland Garros earlier this month to draw level with Roger Federer in the history books.

Kyrgios has a bit of a storied past when it comes to spats with Nadal, who he once branded ‘super salty’ whilst accusing him of being a bad loser.

Even he, though, can’t deny the Spaniard has achieved something special.

“I wasn’t surprised when I saw Rafa Nadal pretty much easing his way through the draw at the French Open,” Kyrgios told Courtside Huddle.

“That’s his backyard, he loves playing there and he has only lost two matches in his entire career.

“Honestly, in my opinion I don’t think we are going to see anything like that ever again.

“Somebody so dominant on a surface he’s right there with the greatest of all time. You can argue that he is the greatest.’

“You look at Federer, he’s the most dominant player of all time, but in this era it’s actually Rafa. It’s a debate you can have.”

“We had our differences when we played each other. We’re fiery, we’re competitors and are going to go after each other.

“But at the same time I am not going to take anything away from him . He’s an absolute champion and 20 Grand Slam is ridiculous and I don’t think we are ever going to see that again.”
