"It's a lot, and I know that, but it's been done before and that keeps me going, knowing a lot of people have done it", she says. "That is going to be really important to me". But according to Serena, she never wanted for anything.

"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.

"Obviously when I do have the baby and I want to get back to training, I really want to have that quality sleep I need because I want to come back at some point-hopefully sooner than later."

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

Williams' experience with her first check, while comical, demonstrates how novel such payments were for an athlete who grew up living in a two-bedroom house with six other family members. "If they can do it, I know I can do it". Then again, if I'm ever handed a check for $1 million, you can be sure I'm not leaving the bank until I've been guaranteed by the entire staff that it's been deposited into my account.

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. "And if not, I would really want her to speak up for it".

Police arrived at the 400 block of North Mesquite Street at around 2 pm after people saw the notes coming out of the machine. No one was harmed, but a few traumatized ATM users may think twice the next time they reach for the receipt slot.

Williams, who is due in September, has stated that she hopes to return to the tennis court by January and plans to juggling her sports career with promoting several of her different partnerships. "Any daughter of mine will have a voice".
