Serena Williams is untouchable. The six-time Wimbledon champ , recently dubbed as America's greatest athlete, crushes both on and off the court. Relentless training, practice and confidence seem to be key and Williams gracefully demonstrated the latter after the Wimbledon Champions' Dinner, People reports. Following her fourth straight Grand Slam win, several shared their support and admiration for her on social media, including writer J.K. Rowling:"#SerenaSlam! I love her," she wrote. "What an athlete, what a role model, what a woman!" Unfortunately, with every compliment comes a few insults. Soon after another Twitter user known as Rob, fired back at Rowling, stating that Williams is built like a man. Williams (and several other female athletes) have heard those words before, but she has no time to feed into the ignorance. On July 13, in true #SerenaSlam fashion, Williams simply shut down Rob and her other haters with stunning photos on Instagram. Take look a look below. She started with a beautiful selfie. Those eyebrows, are on-point.
