The commercial highlights the "two sides" of Williams — the ultimate champion on the court and the business leader and fashion icon she is off the court.

She had been in Michelob commercials in the past — in 2022’s "Superior Bowl" and 2021’s "Happy." She was also featured in the beer brand’s "Joy Is The Ultimate Trophy" earlier this year, which showcased the incredible accomplishments she’s achieved throughout her career.

"You’ve seen me hold trophy after trophy in my career," she wrote in a March Instagram post. "This one was extra special because it was the first time I got to show my daughter that her mom is a champion. The real achievement isn’t the hardware though, it’s the happiness behind it."

The 40-year-old will walk away from the sport with 23 Grand Slam titles — the most in the Open Era and second most all-time behind Margaret Court. She will get one more chance to tie the court’s record. She lost in the first round of Wimbledon earlier in the summer.
