She is also the 2018 Woman of the Year, according to GQ.
A 23-time Grand Slam champion who returned to the court this year following the birth of her daughter in September 2017, Williams appeared on the cover of the magazine this week. The 37-year-old tennis star was named alongside actors Henry Golding, Jonah Hill and Michael B. Jordan as part of GQ’s Men and Women of the Year honours.

This isn’t the first time that a woman has landed a “Man of the Year” cover: In 2017, the MOTY award was given to Gal Gadot for her role in “Wonder Woman,” as well as Stephen Colbert, Colin Kaepernick and Kevin Durant.
