Serena Williams spotted stripped: “I’ve been shocked for a week! She is very big”

Serena Williams is one of the most inspiring tennis players of all time, but for Romanian world number 292, Alexandra Cadantu, Serena is the first Grand Slam memory of her career and one that left Cadantu astounded for an entire week.

“The first time I participated at a Grand Slam tournament and the first locker room memory of my life was when I saw Serena Williams for the first time in my life,” Cadantu told Gsp. “I saw her stripped and I have been shocked for a week because she was very big.

It’s incredible how she can look, play and move”.

Serena Williams opened up about her body insecurities
Cadantu had seen Williams in the dressing room before the American legend got pregnant and there’s no secret that she had been regarded by many as the strongest woman on the tour.

Many even compared her force with that of a guy due to her strong overall physique. “It was hard for me. People would say I was born a guy, all because of my arms, or because I’m strong. I was different to Venus: she was thin and tall and beautiful, and I am strong and muscular – and beautiful, but, you know, it was just totally different,” Williams said in an interview for Harper’s Bazaar UK.

One of the goals she had set when she had been 22 years old was losing weight until she would get to a size 4. In hindsight, she realized that she had never wanted to achieve that. “Oh God, I’ll never be a size 4!

Why would I want to do that, and be that?” Williams said. “This is me, and this is my weapon and machine. But I love that I said that, because I can understand. I can show Olympia that I struggled, but now I’m happy with who I am and what I am and what I look like… Olympia was born and she had my arms, and instead of being sad and fearful about what people would say about her, I was just so happy”.

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.”
