“Nothing scarier than a fully-focused Serena 😱,” Mouratoglou captioned the picture. Going by Williams’ sheer on-court dominance over the last two decades, facing her is certainly a scary experience for every opponent.

Serena Williams’ coach wishes Halloween

The Halloween fervor has gripped the tennis players. Recently, former World No.5 Eugenie Bouchard asked her fans on Instagram for costume suggestions.

Interestingly, Russian tennis players Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova and Daria Kasatkina attended today’s press conference at the Billie Jean Cup Finals in a fancy dress for Halloween.

Meanwhile, the fans are eagerly waiting for Williams’ to upload pictures of her Halloween costume alongside her 4-year-old daughter Olympia, who has become a huge social media star.

A few days back, Williams posted an adorable video of her daughter dressed up as a ‘cowgirl’ in a cute white dress and a cowgirl hat. Whether it’s posing for a photoshoot, baking a chocolate cake, to taking tennis lessons, the mother-daughter duo is always inseparable.

Since retiring from her first-round match at this year’s Wimbledon Championships, Williams has played no match. She withdrew from the US Open citing a hamstring injury and has dropped to World No.41 in the WTA rankings.
