(While the U.S. Open was rain-delayed – again – Serena Williams killed time today on Twitter, tweeting a bunch of her fans... and making their day!
(Like one particular teenager named Amanda Nicholson...)
Amanda Nicholson: “@serenajwilliams Hi Ms. Serena you are an inspriation to me I’m an tennis player and a new business owner please check out: www.clutterr.com”
Serena Williams: “@InuGome25 Congrats! How are you?”
Amanda Nicholson: “@serenajwilliams omg! you replied! I’m great! i love tennis i watched you play you are amazing. the site i showed you was all built by me”
Amanda Nicholson: “@serenajwilliams and I’m not trying to target you for publicity or something. thats low. im just a 14 yr old girl with a dream.”
Amanda Nicholson: “@serenajwilliams lol some people think your trying to use them! but since your my inspiration anyway I was hoping your very nice”
Serena Williams: “@InuGome25 Well, of course. What did you expect!!!”
Amanda Nicholson: “OMG. Serena Williams amazing tennis star actually answered my tweet. I swear I started tearing up!”
Race + Higher Ed: Fear not, Suzy. You’re still #1!
