After revealing her pregnancy complications, Serena Williams admitted that she almost walked away from her tennis career after giving birth to her daughter in September.
The 36-year-old pushed through and returned to the game with a victory at the WTA Tour over the weekend. She is still expanding her empire off of the tennis court.
According to TMZ, the tennis legend has filed documents to trademark the name Aneres (which spells Serena backward). The name was once supposed to be used for a clothing line. Now it will reportedly be used for a beauty line by Williams. The line will include a range of beauty products such as makeup kits, skincare, perfumes and bath products.
Serena will join the likes of Rihanna, Kylie Jenner, and Kim Kardashian who have entered the makeup industry.
