As Serena Williams continues her journey to potentially earning her 22nd Grand Slam Title, the tennis titan teamed up with R&B newcomer Andra Day to star in a new Beats by Dre ad for the U.S. Open.
The three-minute commercial premiered Wednesday (September 2) and opens with Serena’s alarm clock going off at 5:45AM. After she’s dressed, she heads to the kitchen while a television broadcast plays in the background that negatively summarizes Williams technique during a game.
She heads out for run requesting Andra Day’s inspiring single “Rise Up.” on Beats 1 Radio. As she runs through the neighborhood, images of Serena throughout her career appear, and while she drowns out the noise from the world, Williams reflects on all she’s accomplished, while still keeping focused on her goal.
Watch the moving commercial below.
