20 Jan Serena Williams Joins BAYC: Gets a Bored Ape NFT
Serena Williams – arguably the best female tennis player to have ever played the game, at least measured by Grand Slam titles – has bought a Bored Ape NFT.
Serena Williams is one of the most influential tennis players of the open era, having won a total of 23 Grand Slam titles in her career up to date.

The athlete has just posted, however, a Bored Ape NFT from the Bored Ape Yacht Club collection, indicating that she’s the latest celebrity to join this exclusive club.
This is what her ape looks like:
