On Twitter, the former First Lady of the United States shared her admiration for Williams. Michelle Obama noted how “lucky were we to be able to watch a young girl from Compton grow up to become one of the greatest athletes of all time.” She then expressed  her excitement of what comes next for the sports icon as she “evolves away from tennis.”

Meanwhile, Tiger Woods didn’t hold back in his praise of Williams and called her the “greatest on and off the court.” The golf legend himself showed his love for Serena and his appreciation for “inspiring all of us to pursue our dreams.”

Bill Gates, for his part, shared the same tune as Mrs. Obama. Considering how Serena “challenged the double standard between male and female players” in tennis, the billionaire businessman couldn’t wait what she’ll do next to continue making a positive impact to the world.
