No voices, no distractions – just the peaceful pop of a rhythmic rally. That’s what the latest video of pregnant Serena Williams practicing her tennis shows.
The result is like a hypnotic metronome, as steady as a baby’s heart beat. Some mothers sing to the babies they carry: this video shows Serena Williams playing her own unique and perfect tune for her child. It’s quiet poetry. Palm trees, a few clouds and Serena’s hitting partner are the only observers. The only thing that could make it more delicious for public consumption is if that were Venus at the other end of the court, the way it was when the Williams sisters were just little girls with big dreams.
