ROME – Tennis champion Serena Williams has decided to take preventive measures against coronavirus infection (Covid-19).

"I will spend the next six weeks in solitude," he wrote on Instagram, "doing mom, wife, cooking, doing spring cleaning, face masks, make-up tutorials".

"I'll let you know how it goes and take care of everyone," he added posting a video of her makeup.

Nicknamed "The Queen" , she is considered the best tennis player of all time, even from legends of the sport like Chris Evert , thanks to his physical and mental strength, his powerful blows from the baseline and the best service of the circuit.

It became number 1 in the world for the first time on July 8, 2002.

Winner of 39 Grand Slam titles, she made 23 singles (second of all time behind only Margaret Smith Court, who excelled with 24).

It can also boast 5 year-end Master Cups and 19 "Premier" tournaments (6 Premier Mandatory, 6 Premier 5 and 7 Premier) as well as 21 Tier I and Tier II titles and the Olympic title won at the London Olympics in 2012.

It was n. 1 in the world for 319 weeks, third in the all-time ranking (behind Steffi Graf with 377 and Martina Navrátilová with 331); however, he is in first place for consecutive weeks as the best in the ranking (186, like Steffi Graf).

Not only in singles Williams can boast numerous victories, but also in women's doubles and mixed doubles, where there are 16 other Grand Slam tournaments: 14 won paired with her older sister Venus and 2 in mixed doubles, both with Maks Mirny.

To these must be added 4 gold medals at the Olympics (3 in double with Venus, 1 in single), a Federation Cup and 2 Hopman Cup, together with several other titles, as well as being the only tennis player in history to have completed the "Virtual Grand Slam" ("Serena Slam"), or the victory of 4 consecutive Slams not during the same calendar year, twice (2002-2003, 2014-2015).

With a cash prize of over 90 million dollars she is the tennis player who has earned more in the history of this sport.
