Serena Williams has fought back in regal style after her easy semi-final win over Elena Vesnina led to questions over equal prize money

The Queen of Centre Court, Serena Williams, refuses to bow to anyone

Asked whether she would go down as one of the greatest female athletes of all time, after beating Elena Vesnina to go into the Wimbledon final, Serena Williams replied: ‘I prefer the words “one of the greatest athletes of all time”’

Novak Djokovic made peace with Billie Jean King, Chris Evert, Serena Williams and others yesterday, supporting equal prize money for men and women tennis players after days of controversy.

Djokovic said he had sent messages to Andy Murray, Serena Williams and others who had been critical of his remarks.

Forbes on Instagram: "Not only is Serena Williams the highest-paid female athlete in the world but she's also one of the top ten most valuable players on social media. She ranks seventh on our list of social media MVP's with $1.14 million in media value and her partners are benefiting greatly thanks to her 13.9 million followers. Offline, Williams' career prize money of $78 million is double any other female athlete, and she has made more than twice that off the court from sponsors..."
