What's the sign of a successful monster of a career? Is it the number of trophies you have? The amount of endorsement deals??
NOPE! It's how many super personal photos you get to take with Mickey Mouse while the Disney castle soars in the distance!
If that's true, then according to this picture… Serena Williams has FINALLY MADE IT! Woo! We always knew the day would come, and we said we wouldn't cry, but we had no idea it would be today! These are tears of surprise, we swear!
This pic comes from Disneyland Paris — and it looks like Serena is about to show Mickey a thing or two on the courts!
Go easy on him, Serena! He's just a cartoon mouse!

This year, the Fourth of July fell on a Thursday, which means one thing: patriotic throwback pics!
Venus Williams got caught up in the theme, and we’re so glad she did!
The tennis star Instagrammed this pic (above ) of herself and sister Serena Williams as kids posing with Ronald and Nancy Reagan.
She captioned it:
Legal problems, schmegal shproblems!
Showtime IS planning on showing the documentary about Venus and Serena Williams, basically giving a middle finger to the U.S. Tennis Association, because they want the U.S. District Court in NY to ban it! Instead, Showtime is showing it on August 23! Ha!
Why does the USTA want it banned?
It’s like David beating Goliath!
Serena Williams seemed unstoppable in Wimbledon this year, but it just goes to show that anything can happen!
The five-time champ was knocked out of the tourney on Monday thanks to No. 23 seed Sabine Lisicki from Germany.
It seems like a lot of people are getting caught saying unsavory things these days, and are having to make multiple attempts at clarifying or apologizing! Serena Williams is one of those people, as she originally made statements about the Steubenville rape case that sounded an awful lot like she was blaming the victim for the atrocities!
Here's what she's saying now:
Serena Williams made some shady comments about the Steubenville rape victim last week, comments that she said were mostly untrue and misconstrued by the reporter who had asked her how she felt about such an awful situation.
Since then, she's been on an apology bender — but less for what was said, more for that the reporter got it wrong (which is totally plausible!). EITHER WAY, she has not only visited the rape victim in person, but she's also apologizing to those sucked into the collateral damage… including her biggest opponent, Maria Sharapova!
You see, when the interview was released, Maria was sucked into the whirlwind just because they're fierce opponents, so everyone thought to badger Maria with questions about things now that Serena was in hot water. It makes sense if you want to sensationalize things, but honestly, Maria shouldn't have been bothered!
Maria ACCEPTED her apology… but then turned around and threw some shade later at her own press conference! She said:
"If she wants to talk about something personal, maybe she should talk about her relationship and her boyfriend that was married and is getting a divorce and has kids."
Come on, quit being petty! You're both professionals — ACT LIKE IT!
Listen to Serena talk about how she reached out to Maria (above)!
