Serena Williams’ dance moves on the tennis court

Serena’s dance moves weren’t just restricted to her home, as she brought them to the tennis court too. While practicing recently, Serena showcased her top-notch technique, but also grooved on her own, showcasing some dance moves. Her coach Patrick Mouratoglou commented on the video well.

“I was told I don’t share enough of my training, I hope this helps y’all know I’m serious,”  Serena wrote in the caption.

“I like when you move your legs like that,” Mouratoglou commented.

Naomi Osaka also had a few words for Serena, and so did Serena’s sister, Venus Williams.

Serena’s agent Jill Smoller also revealed a few things about Serena. He iterated that Serena’s training sessions involve great focus and concentration. “When Serena is training, that’s all she’s thinking about,” he said.

Smoller also said that when Serena loses a big match, it’s a major blow and she can “get very dark and down on herself and wants time alone.”

We all know Serena is very passionate about her daughter Alexis Olympia. Her agent agreed with that. “She always shows up for her baby. She doesn’t have that luxury to disappear, because she’s a mom,” he said.
