Serena Williams is in her second Grand Slam final of the year after giving birth to her daughter. Fans are saying her recovery to becoming an elite athlete again proves, once and for all, she is the greatest professional athlete of all time! Others argue while Serena is undoubtedly one of the all-time greats, athletes like Muhammed Ali, Steffi Graf, Jackie Joyner-Kersee, and Michael Jordan were better. Pregnancy does not automatically qualify you for greatness. What do you think? 🎾 👑 👸🏾 👑 🎾

Could Jordan have won all those rings, or Ali won all those fights while pregnant? Serena is the greatest; her win while pregnant and postpartum resurgence proves it!

Here is Da'Shan Smith of Revolt with more: 

We have our Muhammad Alis, our Michael Jordans, our LeBron Jameses, even our Venus Williamses. But there’s only one who can call herself Serena Williams. Until recently, both Williams Sisters were often neglected from the conversation of being the singular greatest athlete to ever exist. This may be due to the fact that they are women, who happen to compete in a sport that’s often perceived as boring or not as widespread like football, soccer, or basketball. The problem with this outlook is, just as Michael Jordan has done for basketball or Ali for boxing, both sisters reinvented the game of tennis as more of a thrilling spectator sport for the betterment of pop culture. With her charisma and nearly consistent domination, Serena happened to even pull ahead of her sister.

Serena Williams is undoubtedly one of the greatest athletes ever, but to say she's better than Steffi Graf, Jackie Joyner-Kersee, Michael Jordan or Muhammad Ali would be false. The people have spoken
