Kim: Serena and Kim have been friends for over 15 years, according to Vogue.

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star told the publication's September Issue that Serena "is obsessed with karaoke, which personally is my biggest fear in life. I remember a dinner in San Francisco before a DNC fundraiser. Serena sang, [former U.S. President Barack Obama] sang, [Kanye West] sang. It was legendary. She gives herself those moments—it's how she recharges. Serena's the girl you can call and say anything to. She'll never judge you, and she's never too busy for you. Oh, and she can keep any secret."


Eva: Eva is one of Serena's biggest fans. The actress has been spotted watching her pal play tennis and the duo has been photographed together around the world for years. From events in Monaco to the beach in Miami. Eva was there to attend Serena's baby shower earlier this year and talked about dressing up for the occasion on Late Night With Seth Meyers. Check out what Eva said about her pal in the video above!

Colton: Colton is also a major supporter of Serena and has been spotted at her tennis matches as well. Back in 2015 for Serena's 30th birthday, Colton shared the Instagram post above which shows some of their most epic friendship moments.

Along with the post, Colton wrote, "On this day, 30fun yrs ago, this beautiful light @serenawilliams was born. What a fun journey it's been :) So happy to have ya in my life & cheers to many more dance rehearsals, karaoke nights, petty squad naps, & spontaneous flights! :)."


Caroline Wozniacki: Caroline, a fellow tennis star, and Serena have shown major support for each other over the years. When Serena was announced as Sport Illustrated's Sportsperson of the Year in 2015, Caroline posted her friend's cover photo and congratulated her.

Caroline wrote to Serena, "Congrats @serenawilliams !! SOOO well deserved! Hard working, humble, thoughtful, beautiful.. So many words describe you, but most of all you are a great person and an amazing friend! Can't wait to see you soon!! #beautifulcoverphoto."
