Serena Williams Hits Amazing US Open Shot, Does the Splits (Video)

Serena Williams

All eyes are on Serena Williams the next couple weeks as she attempts the calendar year Grand Slam with this US Open appearance. However, she got a little more than she bargained for against lowly American challenger Bethanie Mattek-Sands, who stole the first set from her. 

For a while, it looked like Serena was in trouble, but then she did that thing where she becomes awesome. This time around, it was an amazing winning shot that ended in the splits. She just sat there for a minute, making the shot even cooler.

Check it out:

Fortunately, Serena was able to right the ship after that point and did what we all thought she would do. Most people would probably say this micro-scare she faced was a good thing for keeping her sharp and focused, and if we managed to get this cool shot out of the whole affair, then all the better.
