Strong. Powerful. Beautiful. Greatness is a word only reserved for a few and Serena Williams is one where the word comes naturally. The superstar Tennis player embarks upon the chance to pick up her 23rd Grand Slam over the next two weeks with the start of this year's US Open tonight. The folks at Nike spared no expense in acknowledging this feat with the release of Serena's very own Nike Court Collection.
Greatness is a word ripe with subjectivity. But when it comes to Serena Williams, there is no debate. Williams defines it. She has captured more trophies than need counting, always working towards the next, pushing herself and her sport to the next level. This summer proves her greatness all over again, and she's nowhere near done.
The collection, which hit stores and online on August 27, includes the NikeCourt Bomber Jacket and three different Nike sneaker silhouettes. Take a look below at the collection.
