INDIAN WELLS, Calif. – A little more than 12 hours after her successful return to court Thursday night at the BNP Paribas Open, it was back to business as usual on the practice court for Serena Williams.
Basic black seems to be the theme for the week, but the voluminous coiffure from Thursday night’s match tied up nearly for work time.
At the end of the video, Williams and hitting partner Jarmere Jenkins play a game of “no miss”.
Not sure if they were going by number of hits, or time elapsed. But the number of hits, we can attest personally, came out to … 119 before Jenkins missed into the net.
He missed long a few times as well before that, but Williams handled it.
A lot of tennis players could do that 119 times, if they’re any good at all. But few of us can do it at that pace (and without passing out). Williams didn’t run that much – it’s a fairly cooperative exercise – but she seemed barely out of breath.
Here’s what 119 looks like.
Some pics as well.
