She not only released a tweet to her friend letting her know that she will "# I will always walk with you, friends forever#" but she took time out of her schedule to take her friend out for dinner and they also partied the night away when she arrived in Paris.
Fans know her as one of the most fierce and competitive women on the tennis circuit, her temper is legendary and she has a hatred for losing that is unsurpassed.

The match was important as she is a professional tennis player but her actions showed that Serena Williams is not only the best women tennis player in the world but she is also a good friend.
Look out Paris Open, don't be surprised if Serena Williams wins this tournament and becomes even more loved by the fans both for her play on court and her actions with her friend off the court.
