Serena Williams still had an epic year despite withdrawing from the U.S. Open and not competing in the Tokyo Olympics.

The tennis champion starred as Wonder Woman in a DIRECTV commercial, invested in a fintech startup geared towards helping people improve their credit and unveiled a shoe and athleisure line in collaboration with Nike. 

She also announced the 2022 release of a children’s book inspired by the toy doll she and her husband Alexis Ohanian Jr. designed for their daughter Olympia.

Williams and her family celebrated the success of the film King Richard — starring Will Smith in the lead role — which tells the story of her father Richard Williams’ dedication towards getting her and sister Venus to the top of the tennis world.
