Nike dropped a new ad featuring a home video of Serena Williams and her father, Richard Williams. The goosebump-inducing video is a reminder of how nurturing talent can make the impossible possible.

It might be hard to believe now knowing all that we know about Serena, but one of the greatest athletes of all time used to be the underdog — as Nike highlights in the emotional spot.

Nike released a touching ad featuring Serena Williams and Richard Williams, the father who trained her. 

It's hard not to tear up seeing Richard prepare his little girl for ineffable greatness. 

The support from Nike comes at a time when it could have abandoned the superstar athlete who has been shunned by the French Open because of her attire. 

The French Open won't allow Serena to wear her signature catsuit in future tournaments. Serena wears the compression suit to prevent blood clots, a frequent issue for her. 

Nike not only released the video ad, but have also put out another inspiring advertorial featuring the queen. 

There's no denying that Serena is one of the greatest athletes of all time, and certainly one of the greatest tennis players. 

Stay winning!
