Serena Williams enjoyed a history-making career in tennis but you can bet she isn’t done blazing a trail.

Williams’ transition away from playing tennis hasn’t been a cessation of labour for the 23-time Grand Slam winner who has been kept busy running her investment empire.

Those savvy investments could even see Serena Williams net more money post-retirement than she did in her career.

She founded Serena Ventures in 2017 as she sought to ‘write checks that empower change’.

To date 79% of the companies Serena Ventures have helped have founders from demographics that are under-represented among start-ups.

Williams has managed to attach herself to some highly successful projects in a short space of time, getting on board as an investor in Tonal before the company’s value skyrocketed.

During her playing career she earned more than $350 million from endorsements to greatly bolster her income.

She clocked up $94.52 million in prize money in a career that stands out from the crowd.

Her career prize money total is also more than double that of any other player on the WTA Tour.

Williams won her 23rd and last Grand Slam in 2017 while pregnant with her daughter Olympia.

She would play four more Grand Slam finals though, coming back to the sport only to lose the championship matches at 2018 and 2019 editions of both Wimbledon and the US Open.

Her 2017 Australian Open triumph came as she beat her sister Venus in a Major final for the eight time in ten meetings at that stage of Grand Slam.

The couple recently announced that Serena is pregnant with their second child.

She still has some lingering regrets about how her career ended.

Asked by Gayle King on CBS Mornings how she felt the morning after waving goodbye, Williams replied: “That’s a really good question, no-one’s asked me that yet. I was actually not very happy at all, just because of the result.

“I was there to keep going and to keep winning, and it was more or less like, I can’t believe I let that match go more than anything…

“Obviously it was a great moment and a great memory and I don’t feel like I’ve left anything, but I just felt like what I could have done better that day.”
