Gatorade's new spot is a blast from the past, featuring a young, confident Williams.
She rules the court with her powerful strokes. But what's incredible is that she, at the age of 11, knew what the future held for her.
Energy drink brand Gatorade, in its latest video, has resurrected an old footage of tennis ace Serena Williams. It starts off with a journalist asking 11-year-old Williams a simple question - "If you could be like any famous tennis player, who would you want to be?"
It is no wonder that many budding tennis players, today, look up to Serena Williams. And going by her accomplishments, one can't help but marvel at her confidence back then. Most recently, upon winning the 2015 Wimbledon Singles title, Williams became the holder of maximum number of Grand Slam singles titles.
Gatorade implies in the video that winners are not made, they are born. The video ends with the words 'win from within'. The video, uploaded at the beginning of this month, has over 12 million views so far and has been shared over 4,000 times.
Meanwhile, the brand has also uploaded three other short videos in which Williams speaks about her relationship with her father and her sister, Venus Williams, her training etc. These videos have also been shared and viewed several thousand times.
