Serena Williams Wants You To Touch Yourself.

Serena Williams is one of the greatest athletes of all time. But in the 48 hours before Mia was due to sit down with her, the US Open happened, and Serena Williams was all over the news for all the wrong reasons.

So we waited for her to cancel. But she didn’t. Instead, Serena Williams did what working women and working mothers do, she got on with it. She sucked up her personal feelings and met her commitments.

In this very candid conversation with Mia, Serena talks about the first thing she did when she got off the court at the US Open, her involvement in the new Berlei breast cancer campaign – and the fact that she sings – and life with her one-year-old daughter, Olympia.
