Musings From Serena Williams’s Inspirational Notebook

July 3rd, 2007

Serena Williams has revealed her belief, the positive thoughts that will help her to win Wimbledon. The US Tennis Star keeps a notebook in which she writes inspirational messages to herself.

These empowering thoughts must have been the secret behind Serena William’s miraculously recovery against Daniela Hantuchova. Suddenly during the second set, Williams collapsed behind the baseline, from calf cramp. But with a taped-up leg she continued  and managed to beat Daniela with 6-2, 6-7, 6-2 score in rain interrupted match.

After the match, she said,

I decided I was going to die trying, I just had to go back on court, no matter what. It would have been weird if I hadn’t tried.

Extracts from the double Wimbledon champion’s inspirational notebook:


  • My good thoughts are powerful
  • My only negative thoughts are weak!
  • Decide what you want to be, have, do and think the thoughts of it.
  • Hang on to the thought of what you want.
  •  Make it absolutely clear.
  • Positive thoughts

  • You will move up
  • You R #1 (No1)
  • You are the best
  • You will add spin
  • You will have long follow-throughs
  • You will win WIMBLEDON
