Beyonce is currently 31 years old, and no one watching the 2013 Super Bowl halftime show would have even thought about calling her “over the hill” or “too old” for what she was doing.
However, the so-called “experts” continue to label the 31-year-old Serena Williams as exactly that.
At the French Open, Serena once again quieted all critics and proved why she may just be the best female to ever grace a tennis court — she is now the reigning French Open, Wimbledon, U.S. Open and Olympic ladies singles Champion, after all.
Once the tournament was all said and done, Beyonce penned this nice letter to Serena. It is letting her know, from one 31-year-old celeb to another, just how big of an inspiration Williams is to millions of little girls and grown women worldwide.
Granted, we don’t know whether the note was actually ever delivered to Serena. Beyonce simply posted it onto the “news” section of her website and may have just called it a day. Either way, it’s a pretty classy move.
