Serena Williams Orders Espresso In the Middle of a Match (Video)

Serena Williams orders espresso

What do you do when you need a boost? Most people do whatever they can to get a coffee in their system, and Serena Williams is no different.

What makes Serena Williams‘ choice of energizing beverage interesting is the fact that she’s a tennis player, and you’d think it would be hard to get a cup of coffee on the court while you’re in the middle of a match.  That’s probably the case when you’re playing at Wimbledon, but it wasn’t an issue at the Hopman Cup in Perth, Australia.

After losing the opening set of her match to Italy’s Flavia Pennetta, 0-6, she asked the chair umpire and tournament referee is she could get an espresso because she was feeling jet-lagged. Her request was answered and it seemed to do the trick as she rebounded to win the match, 0-6, 6-3, 6-0.
