    Dear Serena, you have made it to the top by struggling, working hard, and sticking with it on days you couldn't find the ball with the racket. You never gave up, ever, and you are a wonderful role model to the young women coming upbehind you...I truly hope there will be some young African- American women that see you shine, and follow in your footsteps. God Bless You, Serena, Your Friend, Bob.
