What do Serena Williams and Wonder Woman Have in Common?
Like Wonder Woman, Serena Williams, winner of three Australian Cups, demonstrates on the courts that she has god-like strength and mental stamina against her opponents—in a powerful, mythic Amazonian sort of way. She is a wonderful example of a sports Wonder Woman who is as “beautiful as Aphrodite, wise as Athena, swifter than Hermes, and stronger than Hercules.”
Serena recently heightened her association with the original female powerhouse when she was spotted at the 2008 Australian Cup writing in her Wonder Woman Journal, published by Chronicle Books in May 2007.
Maybe her fashionable matching sweatbands are really Wonder Woman’s indestructible bracelets.
