That Time Serena Williams Ordered an Espresso in the Middle of Her Tennis Match
On Monday, the tennis star requested quite the beverage during her Group A match against Flavia Pennetta at the Hopman Cup in Perth, Australia.
Williams ordered a cup of joe.
“I was just feeling it, so I just had to get some coffee into me,” Williams said of her coffee order. “I just asked them to get me a shot of espresso — I asked them if it was legal, because I’ve never done it before. I needed to wake up.”
