Serena Williams walked on water during an exhibition in the Mexican city of Monterrey. Oy, don't give her any ideas, WTA.
The 14-time Grand Slam champion took part in the demonstration with Gisela Dulko. While standing on a floating, acrylic mini-tennis court, the two women hit for a short time, then spent the rest of their marine adventure dancing, much to the delight of hundreds of spectators.
It was all part of a promotional event for this week's Whirlpool Monterrey Open.
Serena had to withdraw from the tournament with an ankle injury, which makes the decision to put her on a slippery court in the middle of a fake river all the more questionable. The WTA can't keep top players healthy while on regular surfaces. Then they're going to have their top star spend time on a thin film of water while she's nursing an injured ankle? What's next week? Making Maria Sharapova run an obstacle course where baseball bats swing at her ACL?
