Serena Williams Loves This Baby Book Written By One Of Her BFFs

But when Williams first started playing her sport, fame was new, unfamiliar and nearly unexpected.

Discussing her career, her hopes for her future child and why she's never played tennis for money, it's definitely worth a watch for anyone with six minutes and 13 seconds to spare today.

"I've actually never played for money - I just thought you would go out there and hold a trophy", Williams told sports business manager Maverick Carter on the personal finance video series "Kneading Dough". It comes as no surprise then that when Williams received her first million-dollar check she kept it safely in the bank.

"Not once did I think about a check", the 23-time Grand Slam champion shared.

Well, that's exactly what Serena Williams did with her first seven-figure check.

So when the time came to cash in her first million dollars, the 35-year-old hilariously recalled being at a loss on the protocol.

Police said two men approached the 50-year old woman and forced her to take off her clothes after one of the men displayed a gun. Police are looking for a group of men who robbed and sexually assaulted a woman who was leaving a church service in Queens.

"I'm usually more of a night person but with my pregnancy I wake up in the morning a lot earlier and I go to bed really early, like 9 or 10 p.m., which is really insane for me", she said.

"It's been really, really, good for me", she said.

"That's why I love being at home", she said.

Serena Williams has been making her own financial decisions since she was a teenager. "But when she wants something, usually she gets it!" .
