it’s on: serena makes her comeback

June 14, 2011

Abs, Attitude and … Gatorade? Serena is back…on Twitter (again) with a fierce new outfit. She’s also finally primed for court-time this week, where she’s playing at Eastbourne, along with sister Venus, for the first time since winning Wimbledon last year. Those off-court woes? Serena is passed them. | Draw: Eastbourne

But more about this picture: No, she’s not posing behind a curtain this time and she’s not even rocking the pin-up look from that raunchy video game ad. Plus, who could forget that over-the-top hot pink bodysuit we saw her practicing in a couple months ago?

This time, Serena’s looking sleek and buff (that’s possible, right?) in a dark purple, Nike bra and skin-tight, athletic Capris. Tennis’ Queen Diva is sporting the abs, the curves, the smile of a champion, and, yes, even a Gatorade bottle featuring none other than the 13-time Grand Slam titlist herself.

As Jonathan Scott writes of Serena’s abs and return: “It likely caused a commotion among all the fellow WTA players following her on that medium, too. With all due respect to them, yes, cue the chorus of groans from Serena’s soon-to-be foes. Simply put, the woman looks positively fit.” That she does, Jonathan.

The picture’s caption reads, “Look who I spotted on the @Gatorade bottle…. me!!! That’s G! : )”

In short, it’s great to finally have Serena back, whether you hate her or not. According to her, she was on her “death bed.” Another successful Wimbedon for this G girl? We wouldn’t be surprised if Gatorade shot another promo commercial, just in case…

serena, queen of aces

Gatorade has put out the first post-Wimbledon win ad featuring Serena Williams, and we’re liking it okay. We wish she would’ve kept a little bit more of a retro look in costuming, but the girl can smile, twirl, swing (and serve!) and we gotta give her props for smashing 89 aces in seven matches, a tournament record on her way to the title. Click the image above to watch the commercial!
