Serena Williams rise to greatness has been documented since she and her sister Venus started playing tennis in Compton as little girls.  Now, in a new Beats by Dre commercial celebrating the U.S. Open, the 33-year-old champ is on her way to being a legend.

Williams is currently on the road to possibly winning her 22nd Grand Slam title.  But, in the new three-minute commercial that premiered Wednesday (September 2), Williams wakes up to negative opinions of her in the media heard, on the television behind her. She then heads outside for a morning run and requests Andra Day’s ” Rise Up” on Beats 1 Radio to drown out the thoughts swirling in her head.

While she is running, she and reflects on her past accomplishments reminding her of her greatness and to stay focused. This commercial is pulled off beautifully.

Watch it below and let us know what you think.
