Serena Williams has kicked off 2020 with a reminder that her rock-hard body hasn't gone anywhere. The tennis superstar and entrepreneur took to Instagram on January 1 with a boss photo showing off her killer physique.
Of course, Serena was where she belongs – on the court. The 38-year-old was posing shot full length and wearing a tiny and purple-colored mini skirt paired with a muscle-flaunting white tank. To be fair, muscle kind of sums this star up, with the snap also showing Serena's sculpted legs and toned shoulders.
Amazon Is Paying Her Big Bucks
A caption from Serena mentioned the New Year, plus Amazon – yup, Serena likely got paid big bucks for her pic.
"New year, an even better me (and you!). Excited to team up with @Amazon to share everything I'm "adding to cart" in 2020. Link in my story or head to www.amazon.com/serenawilliams #FoundItOnAmazon #Ad," she wrote.
The post may have been a paid one, but it was smart. After all, anyone following Serena's Instagram is bound to be a giant fan. Anyone not following is still likely a little curious about what this sports face fills her Amazon cart with.
Fans Are Noticing The Body
Kinda hard to miss. Fan comments poured in from the moment Serena's post went live – likes did the same. Over 150,000 were clocked within four hours of Serena's update going live.
"Looking fantastic," one fan rwote.
"Happy new year dear, A year of breaking records and setting new records....," another added.
"Nice photo of you!! Have a wonderful 2020!" was another comment.
Some fans were wittier than others.
"Hopefully you can cart that Aussie Open title," one user wrote. Sister Venus Williams left a like.
Roast Chicken And Vegan Sushi: Serena Talks Food
One thing that isn't rocket science – how Serena achieves that body. The star is on the court for hours at a time, although what's less-known is how Serena nourishes herself.
It turns out, this mother is an amazing cook.
“For years, I was always making gumbo for everyone. My other go-to dishes are something I call a ‘seven-bean delight,’ which really only has five beans, but don't tell. Everyone loves my roasted chicken with garlic. For a minute, it was my turkey tacos. Now it's vegan sushi. I just love to cook!” she said back in 2013.
Pre-Match Turkey Sausage And Baked Potato
Celebs like Kourtney Kardashian might go low-carb (the 40-year-old is trying out the keto diet for the second time), but Serena knows that energy doesn't come out of thin air.
Despite admitting that she usually can't eat before a match, the star did mention foods when speaking to Glamour.
"And I haven't been able to figure out why — it must be nerves!" But I did have some turkey sausage and a baked potato before this last match. I try to do a combo of protein and carbs," she said.
2020 seems to have kicked off well for Serena. Muscles, money, and let's face it, probably more people subscribing to that Instagram account.
