Serena Williams poses for Essence magazine cover

The tennis champion launched her own clothing line called Serena.

And Serena Williams spoke out about the importance of speaking out in Essence magazine.

The 37-year-old star said in the September issue: 'Freedom means standing up and not being afraid to say, "I'm here" or "Hear my voice" or "This isn't want I agreed to" or "This isn't fair and that isn't right."'

Adding: 'I've done it my whole career. It's knowing where I've come from, knowing my history, in particular, the sport that I'm in.'

Serena continued: 'When I first started, there weren't a lot of people who looked like me. So it was really important to always help other people feel as if this is something they could also be a part of...'
In her interview, she told Essence she spoke about the importance to be inclusive with her new fashion line: 'We have an extended size, and we call it great because I don't like the word 'plus.'
