Serena Williams , who scored her 30th-straight Grand Slam win at the U.S. Open on Wednesday, stars in a new Beats by Dre TV spot that celebrates her journey.
In the clip, the world #1 wakes up to tea and a sports analyst’s critique before taking a run in New York City.
Prior to hitting the pavement, she tunes out the world (or maybe tunes into herself) with the help of Andra Day ‘s uplifting “ Rise Up “ playing through Powerbeats2 Wireless headphones on Beats 1 Radio .
“Her story is extremely inspiring no matter what walk of life you’re in,” says Andra Day who will meet Serena for the first time at the U.S. Open.
She passes a store window full of TVs that display memorable moments from her 20-year career: the frustrations and the triumphs.
As the face of Beats by Dre for the tennis world, Serena also has endorsement deals with Gatorade, Berlei bras Delta Airlines, OPI, Kraft, Aston Martin, Pepsi, JP Morgan Chase , and Nike (she wears the Nike Elastika Solid tank top, Nike Legendary Engineered Marble Tight , and Nike Free 3.0 Flyknit shoe in this commercial).
Beats athletes include LeBron James, Draymond Green, Richard Sherman , and Cam Newton .
