Serena Williams: I'm Not Supposed To Lose

by The Secret to Victory

Serena Williams doesn’t lose often, but when she does she takes a lot of flak for the way she loses-- her reactions, her behavior. But maybe there’s a reason for all of it. Something more than just a desire to win. We speak with Serena Williams about one of her worst defeats-- her 2016 loss to Karolína Plíšková in the US Open. She opens up about what happened that day-- and why, as she puts it, she’s a “terrible loser.” And it turns out, there’s more to it than you might think.

The Secret to Victory is hosted by Domonique Foxworth.
