Culture & Entertainment

When it comes to women's sports, many turn a blind eye to their accomplishments. Nevertheless, with the most recent United States Women's National team (USWNT) win at the FIFA World Cup and the noise made at Wimbledon, it's about time we put a little respeck on the names of black women taking their sports by storm.

Here are the 12 black female athletes who are changing their games.

Serena Williams

With the 2019 US Open coming up, Serena Williams is after her seventh US Open title, which if won would become her 24th grand slam victory. If Williams manages to snag her eighth title, she will become the second woman to obtain 24 grand slams and will tie with tennis champ Margaret Smith Court. Already holding second place for the Most Grand Slam Single Titles in Women's Tennis History, Serena Williams shows that despite her age and others' expectations of retirement, she is far from done with dominating women's tennis.
