While awarding him the Presidential Medal of Freedom, Barack Obama called Michael Jordan the “Michael Jordan of Greatness”. Arguably the greatest basketball player of all-time, Jordan, over the years, has given credit where credit is due. Last Saturday, after Serena Williams clinched the 2017 Australian Open’s Women title, Jordan made sure she heard from him:
If receiving custom #23 sneakers in her favorite colors wasn’t enough, Williams also received a letter from Jordan, congratulating her on her achievement. Williams defeated her sister Venus Williams 6-4, 6-4 in the Final of the 2017 Australian Open. It was her seventh Australian Open title and 23rd overall, the most by any male or female tennis player in the Open Era.
