Serena Williams tried to deposit first $1M check at bank drive-thru

Tennis star Serena Williams, for example, is up for two awards: Best Female Tennis player, expectedly, and the coveted Best Female Athlete.

"I've actually never played for money - I just thought you would go out there and hold a trophy", Williams told sports business manager Maverick Carter on the personal finance video series "Kneading Dough".

"She can do it, that's for sure, and she's perhaps the only one who could do it", Henin added. "I think I spend most of my time on the road so this has been a really great way to really get my sleep and turn it into power".

Williams plans to return full-time to her professional tennis career after giving birth but said only "we'll see" when asked if she has a specific time frame in mind. "And like I said, just getting as much sleep in now as I can because I understand when the baby comes you won't sleep as much".

She also told Carter that she wants to give her child everything she had, and, as the Huff Post interview reveals, she will do everything she can to achieve that goal.
