Here's What Tennis Star Serena Williams Did With Her First Million Dollar Check

While a million dollar check is more than a dream come true to the ordinary, star athlete Serena Williams wanted to put her first million dollar fortune in just a bank and not touch it.

Ironically, she was simply using the drive through lane of the bank to deposit the check but it was the bank that suggested she might want to come inside for that.

Four times Olympic gold medalist and 23 Grand Slam singles holder explained that she was never really in it for the money. She just wanted to “go out there and hold a trophy”. So much so that she even forgot to collect her checks at times.
