Serena Williams is one of the top athletes in the world. But the Los Angeles native still likes to have fun taking selfies in her undies just like a Kardashian.
On Tuesday the tennis pro posted several images where she was in a bra and panties while standing next to a bidet – a low oval basin used for washing one’s private parts – in her bathroom.
No clothes: Serena Williams is one of the top athletes in the world. But the Los Angeles native still likes to have fun taking; The star looked nicely made up and was showing off a very flat tummy when she took the snap.
The cover girl was likely so focused on her figure and the angle of the camera, she did not notice a bidet, which can often be found in European hotel rooms and homes but is not common in the US, in the background.
The icon had her hair down over her white tank top pulled over her bra. The beauty was barefoot. These images come just before she is set to compete during the US Tennis Open begins on August 27 in Queens, New York.
She will be at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center ready to take part. Since the champion has never spent a day apart from her daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr, who turns one on September 1 during the tournament, it’s a fair bet the little cutie will be with her.
On Friday, Serena shared a sweet Instagram snap of herself in athleisure wear from her Time shoot as she cuddled the little girl whom she shares with her Reddit co-founder and tech entrepreneur husband Alexis Ohanian, 35.
She captioned it: ‘Something so cool to say: check out my @time magazine cover. I talk about the struggles all of us moms feel. It’s is so important to spread the knowledge.’
Serena added: ‘Also we were super excited to wear my new clothing collection @serena on the cover and inside spread of the mag.’
Time also posted the front cover on Instagram with a gushing tribute to the tennis star.
It started out: ‘No modern athlete who has reached @serenawilliams’ level of stardom has ever returned from so difficult a childbirth, at her age, in a grueling individual sport like #tennis, to claim a major global championship.
‘She says separating herself from Olympia…has become even harder. Why keep at it? “I’m not done yet, simple,” she tells TIME.
‘She needs tennis as much as her sport needs her. It’s the one thing, as a mother, she can do solely for herself. “My story doesn’t end here.” ‘
According to Time, Serena has won 23 Grand Slam singles titles, one short of Margaret Court’s all-time record, and the U.S. Open is her last chance to even the score this year.
Meanwhile, the devoted mom juggles training, competing, traveling and handling all her business ventures while carving out time to bond with her only child.
Serena and Alexis announced their engagement on December 29, 2016 and were married November 16, 2017 in New Orleans, 11 weeks after Olympia’s birth.
