As we have previously mentioned here on the blog, former #UVAMTEN All-American @JarmereJenkins is the hitting partner for Serena Williams (read a great piece from Whitelaw Reid on that right here). Jenkins is at Roland Garros this week as part of #TeamSerena as the tennis star plays in her first Grand Slam since the birth of her daughter. Jenkins has also been featured in the five-part HBO Sports documentary Being Serena (with a prominent role in episode two). The show airs its final episode tonight on the network, but all of the episodes are available to watch On Demand and on HBOGo.
