    Serena Williams

    World number two female tennis player Serena Williams has left the country after a successful three-day charity tour.

    Serena, who boasts of nine singles Grand Slam titles, arrived in Nairobi last Thursday and among the places she toured include Makueni District where she opened a secondary school named after her’— Serena Williams Secondary School Matooni.

    She also met Prime Minister Raila Odinga and conducted a clinic at Sadili Oval Sports Centre in Lang’ata, Nairobi.

    Serena is the youngest of Williams’ siblings and her elder sister Venus is also a former Grand Slam champion. Before she departed on Sunday, Serena said she was happy to visit Kenya and promised to return.

    On the local front, Shufaa Changawa beat Lyn de Souza with straight sets of 6-1, 6-1 to win the Bamburi Beach and Southern Palm junior tournament at Mombasa Sports Club.

    This was Changawa’s second win over de Sousa as she had earlier beaten her 4-1, 4-1 in the girls’ under-16 final.

    The boys’ under-18 trophy went to Klaus Teller who defeated Martin Wandera 4-1, 4-0 in a single final to claim gold medal.

    Joan Wekesa starred in the girls’ under-14 after she beat Cheryl Olaba 4-1, 4-1 in the final to finish top.

    Ryan Lakhani beat Neel Dhudia 6-4, 3-6, 6-4 in a boys’ under-10 final as Preet Chudasama overcame Abir Singh 15-10, 15-10 in an under-8 final played on points format.

    Nahisi hawa Williams watapendeza wakiacha hizo wigi. Halafu wanazivaa mno ati. Ila nimeangalia tena hiyo picha nikaona rangi ya ngozi haijachokonolewa, which is very nice.
    Maimartha akijaliwa mtoto akawa mweusi, huwa najiuliza - atampaka mkorogo?




    :D
    ...mpaka nimepaliwa, dah!

    Black is one of her favorite color I've noticed. Kwenye picha zake nyingi anavaa pamba nyeusi.
    Ab-Titchaz, anything interesting from her speech?
