"If I see the ladies or the guys playing, I get totally excited and I think, 'I really miss it!' But I don't want to be there, only because I'm doing something I feel is just as important, if not much more important", she said. In fact, when I first turned pro, you had to go pick up your check.

But once she really started winning, money became something Williams found that she had to take seriously, especially since her parents weren't monitoring her spending habits. As Business Insider first pointed out, after earning her first million, Williams didn't touch any of the money - she deposited it directly into the bank and walked away.

The seven-time Wimbledon champion said she talks and texts daily with Venus but they don't always talk about tennis. Granted, her methods of depositing the check were probably not the best. "So I never felt when I came into money that I needed to go buy this [or that] because I never wanted it, so it was a great way [to grow up]".

"I never touched it". Sometimes I am walking in my house, and I'm like, 'I really like being pregnant.' I never thought I would say that. "And I remember I went through the drive-thru to deposit my check, and then they were like, 'I think you need to come in for this, ' and so I ended up going inside, so I was like ..."

She continued, "I should have taken a picture of it. Selfies didn't exist back then".

Arrieta allowed one run on four hits in seven innings in August 24, 2014, in his only start against the Orioles at Wrigley Field. Along with Cease, the South Siders get two lottery tickets in 18-year-old pitcher Jose Albertos and third baseman Vimael Machin.

Williams is due to welcome her first child in September, but that isn't keeping her off the court.

Serena Williams has dealt with a huge amount of sexism as a female athlete, something she is never afraid to call out.

Williams has already set a goal for her child too, and the goal has nothing to do with making a million dollars. "And if not, I would really want her to speak up for it".

"Any daughter of mine will have a voice", she said in her interview with Carter.
