Some of Serena’s Grand Slams are missing…

According to Serena Williams, some of her Grand Slam trophies have gone missing. Surprisingly enough, the legendary tennis star doesn’t seem all that bothered either!

In an interview with Stephen Colbert on The Late Show, Serena Williams made a shocking — and yet completely nonchalant — admission. The 23 time Grand Slam winner and tennis ace said that some of her trophies have actually gone missing. Serena suggests that a “house party years ago” could be to blame.

Despite her admission that some of the trophies have gone missing, Serena Williams really doesn’t mind. She expressed that she’s “not really attached to things.” And besides, she explained that the trophies athletes receive at Grand Slams are actually replicas of the real deal anyway…

Serena’s perspective of embracing moments and experiences, rather than adoring physical items, is certainly something that all athletes — and fans — can learn from!
