Everybody knows pop sensation Shakira can shake it, but who knew she can rip it too? That is, rip tennis forehands with the power of an amateur Serena Williams. The 42-year-old singer is likely too late to make much noise on the tennis circuit, but perhaps she’s working toward a few celebrity tennis appearances? She’s hitting on red clay in the video below, and it is clay court season on the pro tour. (Clay court season culminates at the French Open in June.)
Promoters getting a load of this video of Shakira just hammering shots with her coach will be eager for a chance to print Shakira’s name on tickets, since Skakira could sell out an arena if she merely promised to eat a bowl of cereal there for the fans. If she promises to play a few sets of tennis, it’s game-set-match for the ticket vendors.
What fans would really clamor for is some celebrity doubles, with the Colombian superstar teaming up with her Catalonian superstar husband, professional soccer player Gerard Pique. What do you say, Shakira? You obviously got game.
