Serena Williams sounds like one hell of a friend. The tennis player, who covers Vogue wearing a fitted Rag & Bone dress, focuses on friendship and sisterhood with her fiercest competitors on the court. When it comes to playing against big sister Venus, Serena admits that she's learned to disconnect her emotions from her familial opponent. She says, "I don't look at Venus on the court. I can't. If I am winning, I might feel sorry for her. If I'm losing, I will want to knock her out." In terms of close friend and fellow tennis champ Caroline Wozniacki, Williams threatened to fly to Monaco and knock down her door after Wozniacki was abruptly broken up with over the phone. Now that is girl power.
