Nike To Name Expansive Building After Serena Williams

Nike star Serena Williams celebrated many huge milestones in 2017.

In the meantime, Serena's first order of business is preparing her return to tennis in 2018 after the birth of her daughter Alexis Olympia on September 1.

As if all that wasn't marvelous enough, the tennis GOAT took to her Instagram account Thursday morning to share another major announcement - that Nike is naming one of its new world headquarter buildings after her! She kicked off the year by winning the Australian Open - while she was pregnant. "Nike announced yesterday that one of its new world headquarters buildings will be named after me".


Williams, who has been a Nike athlete since December 2003, has 23 Grand Slam titles, an unmatched record. But come 2019, the American will have another honor to add - this one being a bit more unique. There will also be a fourth building, a garage, that is dedicated to "the sporting heritage of New York City", according to Sports Illustrated.

Serena Williams was slapped with a $281 speeding ticket for allegedly driving 86 miles per hour on the highway.
