Serena Williams is the best tennis player in the game. She won the French Open earlier this month, which brings her to 20 Grand Slam titles — a truly incredible accomplishment. The only number she is chasing now is 22 Grand Slams, a record held by retired great, Steffi Graf in the Open era.

But having superhero-like athleticism from a young age didn’t shield her from experiencing her fair share of body issues. She grew up comparing her body to her older sister Venus.
