The images focus solely on Serena’s feet, capturing the inspirational words etched there.

The Global Photo Repository uploaded the images to its official Twitter page with the message, “Serena Williams’ Nike tennis shoes, with the phrases ‘Never Stop Fighting’ and ‘I don’t like losing at anything but…I grew up not from wins but setbacks’.

Additionally, the shoes are also engraved with the name of her three-year-old daughter, Alexis Olympia.

Motivational messages on her shoes remind her to do her best every time she steps onto the court.

And, fighting is precisely what the 39-year-old champion has in mind when she arrives in the French capital.

She is struggling to shake off the bogey of winning her 24th career Grand Slam title in the last three years and would like to end her wait at Roland Garros.

Serena has a tough road to glory at Roland Garros

Serena took part in the Australian Open this year, hoping to end her title drought and match Margaret Court’s legendary career in Grand Slam trophies in her native country.

She seemed to be racing towards her goal, laying down her opponents with usually effortless wins, aided by her brutal power play, until she met her nemesis, Naomi Osaka, in the semi-finals.

The American couldn’t bring her best match to the park on the day it mattered the most, falling in straight sets to the Japanese star, who ultimately won the title.

She did not play any events after the Melbourne Park heartbreak before returning to competition in Rome.

However, her first clay-court event this year also ended in disappointment, as she lost in the tournament opener to underrated Argentine Nadia Podoroska.
