Serena Williams's Quotes About Friendship With Meghan Markle

Serena Williams Gushes About What a Great Friend Meghan Markle Is, and Yes, I'm Crying

Serena Williams and Meghan Markle have been friends ever since they first met at the Super Bowl in 2010. Even though Meghan is officially a royal now, she's still there for Serena no matter what. In a recent interview with Access Hollywood, the 38-year-old tennis champ opened up about her friendship with the Duchess of Sussex and called her the "strongest" and "nicest" person she knows.

"Doesn't matter what she's going through, she just sets time away, and she's just so amazing."

"She flew all the way with a newborn to see me play in New York and flew all the way back that night, and I probably couldn't have done that," Serena said, referring to when Meghan cheered her on at the US Open back in September. "And that's just one of the many things that she does for me. I call her, text her anytime, crying, upset — she's always there. Doesn't matter what she's going through, she just sets time away, and she's just so amazing."

Meghan and Serena initially connected over their "belief in exceeding expectations" and their "endless ambition." They also both "have a penchant for hot sauces and adore fashion," as the duchess previously revealed on her now-deleted The Tig blog. We wonder if they've already made plans to get together when Meghan and Prince Harry visit the US later this month.
