It’s no secret that Serena Williams is one of sports’ most exhilarating athletes. But if she wasn’t snatching titles left and right, there’s another field that she would probably lend her talents to.

In a cover story for the Wall Street Journal, the Compton native shared where she would be and what profession she would take up if she wasn’t a highly decorated tennis player.

“I think I would be in California. Maybe I would be married?” she said. “Maybe I would have kids? I would like to believe I would. I would have probably gone into some kind of science. I love animals. Maybe I would have become a veterinarian.”

Williams also briefly spoke on her cameo appearance in Beyonce’s Lemonade anthem, “Sorry.” “I got really sore from dancing!” she admitted.

The 34-year-old superstar later shared her thoughts on what she feels tennis commentators miss when watching a game.
