Serena Williams Is Enrolled In Beauty School!?

The ol’ backhand must be getting a little rusty if Serena Williams is training for a second career as a nail tech. The tennis champ recently enrolled in a 240-hour program to become a certified mani-pedi giver. She claims to be launching a new line of nail polish with a company called HairTech. We certainly hope this career switch has nothing to do with her U.S. Open meltdown, but if the former is true, maybe all celebs should devote this kind of energy to their forays into beauty and fashion.

Serena Williams Teaches Jon Stewart To Dance

I love Serena Williams. And I love her even more after watching this clip of her on “The Daily Show” last night, where she teaches Jon Stewart how to dance if he wants to pick up the ladies. (Scoot forward to :45.) She also reveals that she and Venus often have dance-offs. Glad to see the whole U.S. Open line judge incident hasn’t stuck with her. [The Daily Beast] Keep reading »

Serena Williams Could Be Banned From Australia Open 2010 After Outburst

Serena Williams is under investigation by the International Tennis Federation for her outburst during the U.S. Open semi-finals last month and could be banned from two grand slams, including the Australia Open 2010 which she is expected to headline, under the tennis code of conduct. Serena has been asked to explain what prompted her to “threaten” the baseline judge with: “You don’t know me. You better be right. I swear to God I’m going to take this ball and shove it down your throat.” The lineswoman allegedly thought Serena had threatened her life. Serena was given a point penalty that cost her the match, and was later fined $10,500 for the outburst and smashing a racquet during the same event by on-site authorities. The ITF still has the power to fine her more than $500,000 in prize money and impose a ban. If she does receive a grand slam ban, Australia Open officials are expected to lobby for the ban to be served during nest year’s U.S. Open. [The Daily Telegraph] Keep reading »

Athletes Remove Their Uniforms For ESPN The Magazine

ESPN is sexing things up with its first-ever “Body Issue,” which will feature six covers, each with a different athlete in the nude: mixed martial artist Gina Carano, NASCAR driver Carl Edwards, tennis player Serena Williams, Orlando Magic basketball player Dwight Howard, Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, and Sarah Reinertsen, the first amputee to compete in the Ironman Triathlon.

While this could go the way of that other sports magazine’s yearly provocative issue that features women in swimsuits, ESPN‘s special issue seems more like it’s honoring the work athletes put into developing their bodies for peak performance, rather than putting them on display in a sexual way. Though, we’re pretty sure some guys will be excited to see Williams in a new way. Keep reading for a look at triathlete Reinertsen’s cover. [HuffPo, USA Today] Keep reading »
