The champion posed for the magazine to promote her new season fashion line- the Serena Williams Signature Statement Spring 2015 collection.

Speaking to journalist Kerry Howley about her plan to move from professional tennis to fashion post-career, Williams told Howley she doesn’t hold onto her countless trophies.

“I have lots of trophies, and I’m just — I’m not that person that needs to see all these trophies,”  Williams said.

“I have some in my house here, some in my house there, some I don’t know what happened to ’em. I have my grand-slam trophies … somewhere.”

In talking about the haters, including people who compare her skills and looks to a man, Williams said:“I don’t think about it, I don’t dwell in the past. If I do, I’ll be swallowed up by negativity. As Mandela once said, ‘I will be in a mental prison.’ ”
