Serena Williams is someone who has left a remarkable legacy in the WTA realm, ending the GOAT debate. During her heyday on the WTA Tour, her fans were always looking forward to her performance on the court. Now that she has retired, they have shifted their attention to her future off-court endeavors. Considering her long association with the entertainment industry, Williams launched her own production company 926. However, the point of debate right now is that it is her birth date.
The most common question on everyone’s mind would be, why would it be controversial if she named her production company after the day she was born? The answer is in the 23-time Grand Slam champion’s religious beliefs. Williams is a Jehovah’s Witness, and the people following of this religious belief do not celebrate birthdays.
Despite being a Jehovah’s Witness, Serena Williams celebrates her birthday with a new endeavor
Serena Williams since her younger days has kept her faith intact. Even when she was active on the court or now that she has retired, she has been a proud member of Jehovah’s Witness. The people following the sect do not celebrate their birthdays, Christmas or any other Pagan-origin holiday.
This automatically means that she does not celebrate her birthday like other members of Jehovah’s Witness. However, with her new entertainment endeavor 926, many of her fans believe that she is indirectly celebrating her birthday.
