Serena Williams, 33, is ready to hit the court. As she gears up for the 2015 U.S. Open Tennis Championships in New York, the legendary player hits the pavement for a run. When the run starts she’s clearly under pressure as images as her previous wins taunt her, but soon enough she finds her footing and is ready to add another massive trophy to her collection. So inspiring!
Be prepared: this new promo for Beats By Dre featuring Serena Williams will give you goosebumps. It’s hard to imagine what it’s like to be Serena, especially right before a very important match that could change the course of her career, but this 3-minute video sure gives us a little insight.
The video starts with Serena waking up before sunrise and preparing for the day inside her home. In the background you can hear the news talking about her next “big match.” Once she’s ready to hit the street, she turns the TV off and enjoys a moment of silence. As she makes her way outdoors, she puts in her Powerbeats 2.0 and listens to the new Beats 1 Radio on her iPhone.
Before she can get anywhere, a storefront filled with televisions shows various defining moments in her career as a tennis star. The pressure is high, but she fights it off by going for a run and listening to the beautiful Andra Day’s “Rise Up.” And that’s exactly what she does: she rises up.
