Serena Williams coming to San Jose for the Mubadala Silicon Valley Classic tennis tournament calls for two drawings! Amazing to see she went from life threatening complications after giving birth 10 months ago to the Wimbledon Finals! An AMAZING feat! Happy to see her healthy and playing again. Hoping to go to San Jose this week to watch her in person.
In case you don’t recognize the tournament name, it use to be the Bank of the West tournament held at Stanford. It is the longest-running women-only professional tennis tournament in the world (est. 1971) and is the first stop of the US Open Series.
Couldn’t figure out which illustration I liked better, so here’s both for your viewing pleasure. I get different vibes from each. Enjoy!
