Serena Williams Just Got Hit With a $281 Speeding Ticket

Serena Williams owns 23 Grand Slam titles, 319 weeks at the top, and holds a near-endless list of accolades to her name. She married her sweetheart Reddit founder Alexis Ohanian in an extravagant New Orleans wedding, had a lovely baby daughter and now Nike will literally erect a building in her name.

As 2017 comes to a close, this latest bit of news is just another feather in her cap.

Now the tennis champion is being honored by Nike in a major way. "What a year it has been", she began.

Since 2003, Williams has been a Nike athlete representing the brand globally.

Slated for completion in 2019, the Serena Williams Building will be the biggest structure at Nike's World Headquarters at more than 1 million square feet covering almost three city blocks.

Duke men's basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski and runner Sebastian Coe will also be getting buildings named after them but rest assured, the Serena Williams building will be the largest one in the group. The fourth new building going up will be a parking garage to celebrate the sporting heritage of New York City.

Serena Williams was slapped with a $281 speeding ticket for allegedly driving 86 miles per hour on the highway.
