Along with Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman, tennis superstar Serena Williams was named one of Time magazine's most 100 influential people.

In a story written by Miami Heat's Dwayne Wade, he describes Serena as 'a friend, but I also look up to her as a fellow athlete. I respect her relentless work ethic, focus, drive and discipline'

Wade goes on to say this about the 17-time Grand Slam singles champion:

"On the court, Serena is a warrior. An aggressive and competitive nature combined with passion, drive and skill makes her a formidable and fierce opponent. Off the court, she is a sweetheart, a bright light with an infectious spirit. She is extremely humble and cherishes her family and life."
