Serena Williams couldn’t help but have a good-natured laugh at her friend Kim Kardashian’s tennis skills!
The 23-time Grand Slam champion, aged 41, playfully teased The Kardashians star after Kardashian, aged 42, shared a series of photos of herself on the tennis court last Saturday. In the pictures, Kardashian seemed more focused on showcasing her swimwear style than her tennis prowess as she posed in a bubblegum-pink Chanel logo-print bikini.
One snapshot captured the mother of four holding her tennis racket in an unconventional manner, while another showed her extending the racket towards the sky for an overhead shot. She captioned the photo carousel with a tennis ball emoji and a pink heart.
Williams playfully joined the conversation by pointing out Kardashian’s unique racket grip.
“Literally not how you hold a racquet. Clearly I have to give you lessons lol ??,” she joked.
The two have shared a close friendship for over two decades, having initially met when Kardashian, long before her global celebrity status, worked on organizing celebrities’ closets, including those in Williams’ home.
In 2017, Kardashian was present when the tennis legend and her husband, Alexis Ohanian, tied the knot in New Orleans. At the time, the SKIMS mogul told Vogue that Serena and Alexis were a perfect match.
“I’ve known Serena for so long, and I am so happy she’s found her prince,” Kardashian shared with the magazine. “From the moment she told me she met Alexis in Rome, it was like… she’s been so happy and has this light about her that is so special to see.”
She added, “You just know it is so real. He makes her so happy, and that just makes her friends happy.”
Serena Williams is undoubtedly the GOAT (Greatest of All Time).
