This is easily one of the coolest things we have ever done over the last 11 years!!!!

Elton John, Andy Roddick, Venus Williams, Billie Jean King & Mickey Mouse Walk Into A
Bar Tennis Match
This is a pleasantly surprising group of people!
Sir Elton was hosting the 2013 Mylan WTT Smash Hits exhibition with Billie Jean, and all of the proceeds went to AIDS charities, including his own!
Together, thanks to this tennis exhibition, the Rocket Man and this tennis great have raised $11.5 million for AIDS since 1993 when they started it!
This is such a brazilliant idea! And we’re sure having Andy and Venus there only drew more of a crowd because they’re incredible!

Well, we suppose that Venus Williams kinda bought her mom a house!
The reality is that Venus is probz the one getting a BRAND NEW set of digs, BUT she totally just gave her old house in Jupiter, Florida to her momz for FREE! So it was like she ended up buying that house for her anyway, she just didn't know it at the time!
Actually, it wasn't exactly free
The tennis superstar has been letting the good times roll since her huge win, and she's had a little bit of help from some high profile celebs!
Serena posted a picture of herself with Ricky Martin, and she was even nice enough to let him hold her trophy!
And don't worry, she didn't forget about her sister! She also posted a picture of her sister Venus Williams hanging out with former President Bill Clinton, who just happens to be giving his signature thumbs up!!
Last but certainly not least, Serena had to snap a picture of her name being added to the locker room wall to commemorate her most recent victory! However, her name IS already on there 4 times, so it kind of feels like she's showing off at this point! LOLz!
It's been truly amazing to watch the Williams sistsers grow throughout their career and how quickly they both became dominant forces in womens tennis!
Congrats again Serena!
Ch-ch-check out more pics of her celebrations (below)!

Aren’t rankings fun?! LOLz!
Every year athletes come and go, which means money within the sports changes around.
This year, we aren’t too shocked by who is number one, but what is surprising is who isn’t on this list, like Venus Williams!
It’s also crazy how many tennis players made the cut.
To see who is number one, check out the list (below)
Can’t stop, won’t stop.
Venus Williams was working hard on her tennis skillz on Thursday when duty called!
The star left the court and was greeted by none other than her too-cute pup! Aww!!!
We’d be eager to quit practice early too with that precious pile of fluff waiting for us.
Venus probably gave him tons of smooches before getting to work, because she posted this pic with the caption:
“Just got off the court so now I can answer more of your questions#VenusOnEleVen tweet me @elevenbyvenus”
There's no doubt she snuggled this little guy while answering questions because omigod how could you not?!?

When is hanging out with the First Lady not a big deal??
Probably when you're an international tennis superstar — and even then we're not totally sure it would ever NOT be a big deal! It just becomes a big deal for the First Lady too! LOLz!
Michelle Obama and Venus Williams hung out together during a recent event, and it looks like they could be besties! So much so that we're glad both of them felt comfortable snapping this pic, which Venus posted along with this message:
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:
