“Have the weirdest…” – Worth $260 million, Serena Williams once revealed her guilty financial pleasure

23-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams has always been a multi-tasker. After establishing her dominance on the tennis courts, Williams entered the investment market. Moreover, like her game, she progressed in the industry and started her own business.

However, she was able to enter and thrive in the risky sector, mainly for a reason. For Williams, the money she earned from her gambling was just a reward. As before, the former world No. 1 herself admitted that her focus is always on her performances in tournaments and not the prize money. Although she also accepted this with success, came a strange obsession.
