Serena Williams tells a great story about trying to deposit her first million-dollar check

July 12, 2017

A pregnant Serena Williams is sitting out Wimbledon, giving the rest of women's tennis a break from her wrath. But as the oldest tournament in tennis continued on Wednesday, the 23-time grand slam winner still managed to grab headlines with a story about what she did with her first big check.

In an interview with Maverick Carter on "Kneading Dough," an interview show in partnership with Chase that's produced by LeBron James' Uninterrupted digital media company, Williams opened up about several topics, but the tale of her depositing, or rather, trying to deposit a million-dollar check as a young player by taking it to a drive-thru ATM caught our attention. Talk about (upper) first-world problems.

Take it away, Serena (Story starts at the 2:30 mark, but the entire six-minute video is worth watching):

This probably isn't something any of us has to worry about, but it's good to know. Then again, if I'm ever handed a check for $1 million, you can be sure I'm not leaving the bank until I've been guaranteed by the entire staff that it's been deposited into my account.
