Serena Williams shares bathroom selfie, showing off her toned curves in black & white underwear
Serena Williams is a tennis legend, but she’s down with taking bathroom selfies anytime, any day. The 23-time Grand Slam singles winner was probably enjoying some downtime before she would have to compete in the US Tennis Open.
Williams shared a photo and video of herself posing beside a Bidet in her bathroom. She sported a white tank top and black briefs. She chose to go with light makeup and stood barefoot as she looked toward the camera.
The 36-year-old beauty was probably taking some time to chill before having to take part in the US Tennis Open that is scheduled to begin on August 27 in Queens, New York.
Williams had earlier revealed that she’d never spent a day apart from her almost one-year-old daughter, so little Olympia should be coming along with her famous mom as well.
Despite her busy schedule and training commitments, Williams has repeatedly expressed how difficult it is for her to stay away from her daughter. One look at the tennis champion’s social media and you can see just how attached she is to her little girl.
Williams has been very open about her struggles to strike a comfortable Mommy-Athlete balance, even revealing she has been going through postpartum emotions that leave her feeling not so good on some days.
The Michigan native, who shares Olympia with her husband, Reddit co-founder, Alexis Ohanian, said as much in her recent Time interview. She told her followers about the issue on which she starred as the cover girl:
“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.”
The cover photo showed Serena wearing her athletic items from her “Serena” clothing line which launched in May. At the time, the icon wrote of her journey in fashion:
They say life is about timing. I learned this lesson at age 18, when I chose to play a light tennis schedule because I wanted to go to fashion school. Some criticized my decision, but I knew I had two loves--tennis and fashion--and had to find a way to make them coexist. After 15 years of false starts, and people in fashion telling me "no," it only only drove me to work harder. As a result, I discovered what it meant to invest in myself, and I allowed that belief in myself to drive me to reach my dream.
Today, I am proud to launch @serena , my own online shop. Never stop believing in yourself, you're worth it. #BeSeenBeHeard
In the midst of it all, Williams continues to credit her husband, Alexis Ohanian, for being a supportive partner and father to their daughter.
