Serena Williams Rocks Karaoke Night after Withdrawal from Tennis Tournament Due to Illness (Video)
Serena Williams showed no sign of illness when she was captured on video during a karaoke night with friends. Just days earlier, she pulled out of a tournament after suffering from fatigue.
Serena Williams may have sat out her tournament due to an illness but she was on her feet during a karaoke night.
LIVIN' LA VIDA LOCA
The tennis superstar showcased her vocal skills rocking “Livin’ La Vida Loca” while on a night out at Neil’s Lounge in Indio, California. A clip of her live singing was shared by The Blast who spoke to a rep of the bar and filled the publication on the details.
According to the source, Williams sipped on Cazadores tequila while enjoying the night singing not just Ricky Martin’s song but a medley of the Spice Girls’ hits too.
In the video clip, Williams and two other friends energetically belt out the lyrics to Martin’s classic with accompanying dance moves. They were clearly having a good time and there was no sign of Williams feeling under the weather.
TAKING A BREATHER ON THE COURT
Just days earlier, the tennis champ pulled out of the BNP Paribas Open after she suffered from dizziness and fatigue. During her match against Garbine Muguruza, the medical crew checked on her between sets after she complained about not feeling well.
Williams later explained in a statement released by the tournament that she “did not feel great” even before the match and things just got worse during the game despite starting off with a 3-0 lead on the first set. She eventually lost six straight games and the set ended with a 6-3 score. She later learned she had a viral illness.
Williams hasn’t won a single tournament since returning to tennis after giving birth to her one-year-old daughter, Alexis Olympia. She vows to get in shape so she can prepare for an upcoming tournament in Miami.
PERFORMING ON TOP OF A BUS
Meanwhile, karaoke seems to be doing wonders for her condition. It is believed she’s a fan of the form of entertainment and would often seek it out. This is probably why she didn’t think twice when she provided backup for her friend Brooklyn Decker during a recent episode of “Lip Sync Battle.”
Decker upped her ante for her showdown against her husband, Andy Roddick when she enlisted the help of Williams who joined her in her performance. Williams surprised the audience in the middle of Decker’s Beyonce gig. She appeared on stage standing on a bus. She was dressed in leotards and fully hyped up as the crowd cheered in excitement and shock. She showed off her skills in lip sync as well as her dance moves and just brought the house down.
