No one does it like Serena Williams.

On Saturday, the tennis star will be fighting for what could be her seventh Wimbledon win after an emotional round of matches at the tournament, but her off-the-court antics are just as stunning as her athletic prowess.

As she attempts to defend her title across the pond, feast your eyes on the champ’s most gorgeously fierce moments.

When she slayed alongside Beyonc in the “Sorry” video

When she embodied the meaning of “statuesque”

When she rocked this angle because she felt like it

When she covered Sports Illustrated as its sportsperson of the year

When she showed off her Wimbledon dress

When she performed aerial acrobatics at the Williams Invitational

When she competed with a sunset for most beautiful – and won

When she proved leotards aren’t just for ballerinas

When she said she could play in heels and proved it

When she crashed a wedding and her bathing suit seemed entirely appropriate for the occasion

When she did this

When she made us all go out and buy body chains

When she posed with her Wimbledon trophy in a goddess-like ball gown

When she made her Vogue shoot wholly original

And then casually read her cover issue by the pool

When her abs looked like this

When we couldn’t look away from her itty bitty shorts.

When she ran a triathlon because training to be a tennis champion wasn’t enough

When she was mistaken for an angel at the Vanity Fair Oscar party

When she attended the premiere of her documentary, shining like a literal star

Williams will take on Germany’s Angelique Kerber in Saturday’s Wimbledon final.
