6. Serena Williams, Professional Tennis Player
Arguably one of the best athletic women, and even among the best athletes of our time, of any gender, Serena Williams has won 20 grand slam tennis tournaments to date; and she’s also won the most prize money to date, EVER. She’s ranked #1 in the world and has been for a large chunk of her career, and beyond all that, she’s one of the most feared players in the game. But we love her most because while she’s a beast on the court, when the game is over she is grateful, humble and honored to be able to do what she does each match.
