Serena Williams attempts to break the internet…
Yesterday, the 33-year-old superstar athlete posted the above image, flaunting her round rump in a super sexy monokini. Although the photo was without a caption, fans made up for it by posting their praises. “D— ma wish I was there for that view.” wrote one user. “Word! It’s like that?” penned another.
This isn’t the first time the tennis champ has broken the internet in a bikini. In 2009, the Michigan resident covered rolling out magazine in a hot pink bikini, cute curly coif and pink pout.
On Saturday, July 11, Williams won her 21st major competition. And even with William’s making tennis history, the main subject of women’s tennis media in the days following was not Williams’ victory. Instead, newspapers, broadcasters and social media focused on Williams’ appearance, especially her muscles and the shape of her body.
On social media, author J.K. Rowling praised Serena Williams’ victory, tweeting, “What a woman!” Another Twitter user from Manchester, England called it “ironic.” Adding that Williams was only successful because “she is built like a man.” Rowling answered with pictures of Serena in a dress and high heels. She tweeted, “Yeah, my husband looks just like this in a dress. You’re an idiot.”
If this new bikini photo is any indication of Williams’ attitude towards the slander, she’s definitely unbothered! For more of Williams’ best bikini moments, hit the flip.
