After capturing her record 23rd Grand Slam singles title at the Australian Open, Serena Williams had a special gift waiting for her while on set with ESPN.
A surprised Williams was presented with two pairs of custom Jordan sneakers, along with a note from Michael Jordan himself.
"Winning is hard. It takes years of hard work, mental toughness, and a willingness to accept the fact that you hate to lose. Congratulations with much respect on winning number 23. It would be a privilege to keep watching your determination on the court."
The Air Jordan 1 GS “Serena Williams” will be available starting on February 11th, 2017 at select Jordan Brand retail stores. The retail price tag is set at $120 USD.
