When Serena got her first million dollar check, she chose to deposit it instead of buying anything big. Granted, her methods of depositing the check were probably not the best.

She just put it in the bank, she said. And I remember, I went through the drive-through to deposit my check and then they were like, I think you need to come in for this. So I ended up going inside. I was just like [laughs], Just put it in my account!’ I should have taken a picture with it.

And while she may not have started playing tennis for the money, Serena Williams is very vocal and has been for years about the pay disparity between male and female players. As a soon-to-be mother who could very well have a daughter who wants to play tennis just like her, Williams told Carter that she would hope things would finally be equal for her when the time comes. If not, she already knows that her daughter would be outspoken about it, too.
