Venus Williams is a world famous tennis star who has dominated the sport with her sister, Serena Williams, for many years. At 6’1”, the four-time Olympic gold medalist towers over her opponents.

Serena is the more well known of the two Williams sisters. She’s also by far the more intimidating of the two. Her demeanor and the way her muscles flex during a match forces fans to be cautious when she’s in the zone. Not to mention, her insanely aggressive serve strikes fear in anyone that is near the tennis court.

Sarah Robles is considered to be the strongest woman alive, at least in the United States.

Regardless, her 269-pound frame is enough to make you look like a pushover.
