Serena Williams is a force to be reckoned with and Nike definitely gave the tennis star huge props in its newest add.

In the “Unlimited Greatness” commercial, the apparel company labeled her the “Greatest Athlete Ever”.

“From Compton’s courts to the world stage. This is the story of the greatest athlete ever.” That mention, in passing but powerful, might even be an allusion to a statement Serena gave at Wimbledon earlier this summer, when confronted with the prompt, “There’s talk of you going down as one of the greatest female athletes ever,” to which she responded, “I’d rather be considered the greatest athlete”….getting passed the sexist “female” notion that the reporter added.

There’s no doubt that Williams is and will continue her reign at the top. But it’s great that a company as huge as Nike, recognizes her for the great that she is.
