To play a round of tennis opposite one of the greatest players of all time usually means you have to be ranked somewhere in the Top 100 tennis players in the world. But for two lucky tennis lovers, they just had to be in the right place at the right time.
Serena Williams was out for a walk in San Francisco on Sunday night with her fiancé, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, and her Yorkshire Terrier Chip, when the trio spotted two men playing tennis.
Williams decided to approach the men and ask if she could play with them, a request that was understandably met with ‘Oh my god’ and ‘Yes please!’
The Nike spokeswoman wasn’t wearing proper footwear, but even Serena Williams in winter boots is still going to beat just about anyone in the world at tennis.
Williams and the two lucky men played a quick game, with Chip pulling his weight as the unofficial ball retriever. The entire event was a great mix of awesome and cute.
Serena recently broke Steffi Graf’s record by winning her 23rd Grand Slam title at the Australian Open in January, beating her older sister Venus Williams to claim the victory. So yeah, we hope these guys stretched before the game.
Williams ended the video by saying “The moral of the story is, you never know when I could be coming to a tennis court near you.” Excuse us while we grab our sneakers and run to the nearest court.
