Serena Williams Killing it a Wimbeldon 2013 on a Raw Food Vegan Diet

Number One ranked and easily one of the greatest tennis players of all time, Serena Williams, is currently treading the grass at Wimbledon 2013. After more than 10 years in the game and five Wimbledon plates on the mantle, just about anyone who's watching knows that she's flipping fantastic with the racket. But what a lot of people don't know is that this year, her power serve is powered by a raw vegan diet.

Back in November 2011, Serena joined sister Venus in a raw vegan diet in order to fight symptoms of Venus' Sjogren’s Syndrome.  Since then, pundits and opponents have been noticing that she's been leaner and keener on grass, clay and concrete, playing some of the best tennis of her life. As of writing, she's on a 34 game winning streak and in 2012, she won 'the most WTA singles titles of the season with seven titles which included two grand slam titles at Wbimbledon and the US Open. She also won the WTA Championships and her first singles Olympics gold.'  So far this year, she's been killing it on the WTA tour with 6 titles including the French Open and is looking in fine form at Wimbeldon, strolling into the 4th round without dropping a set.

Obviously, 18 years of professional tennis and countless hours of practice with a superstar sister go a long way, so it cannot be conclusively said that her raw food vegan diet is the secret to her latest her competitive edge BUT it is clear that it ain't hurtin' nothin either. With simply fabulous private raw food vegan chef, Lauren Von Der Pool, in tow we wish her all the best in this year's tour.
