Tennis ace Serena Williams holds court at Miami Beach in a tiny bikini
Last updated at 11:50am on 11th April 2008

After serving up yet another tournament victory in Florida, Serena Williams enjoyed a well-deserved day of sun and fun at Miami beach yesterday.

The star looked relaxed as she showed of her athletic physique in very skimpy black bikini while cooling off in the surf.

Her mood couldn't have been more different on Saturday as she battled it out on the court in a tense match against Jelena Jankovic

She smashed her racket on the stadium court at one point during the game before recovering to defeat the fourth-seed 6-1, 5-7, 6-3.

The win claimed her fifth Sony Ericsson Open title - a tie with Steffi Graf for the most women's singles titles at Key Biscayne.

The 26-year-old was thrilled to be matching her hero's record, saying after the match: "I love Steffi Graf. She's a great champion and was my role model.

"To even be compared to her is awesome."

Williams', who was last year romantically linked to rapper Common, has long been criticised for devoting too energy on her pursuits away from the court, including fashion design.

But she insists tennis is once again her top priority.

She says with a laugh: "I wasn't making as much money, so I've got to go back to the bread and butter."

"I feel like all I want to do is play tennis."

When were those pictures taken?  Seems like Serena has lost some weight when I saw her play last week.

This was shortly after the Miami tournament this year. So last week.

Venus takes indefinite hiatus for undisclosed reason

AMELIA ISLAND, Fla. -- Six-time Grand Slam champion Venus Williams will be sidelined indefinitely, though she did not say why she will be out of action.

"I've just been having some issues that I need to resolve, so I'm working on that at the moment and I'm hoping to be back playing as soon as possible," Williams said Tuesday at the Bausch & Lomb Championships. "I'm not going to get any further into it, but of course I love the sport."

Williams said last week she was dealing with a medical issue when she announced her withdrawal from the Bausch & Lomb tournament. She played last week in the Sony Ericsson Open, losing to Svetlana Kuznetsova in the quarterfinals.

Williams will not play for the United States in the Fed Cup semifinal against Russia on April 26-27 but did not rule out any other tournaments and said she still wants to play in the French Open beginning in late May.

"Of course I want to be there [in France]," Williams said. "I don't want to be at home watching on TV. Watching this week will be enough on TV, so hopefully not too many more weeks."

There's actually a rumor going around that Venus got engaged to that dude shortly before the Australian Open.... Could that have anything to do with it???

and thank you dallas for being the only one kind enough to pay this thread a visit. :rofl_2:

Hah... yeah right... I think Venus might even still be a virgin since she's all religeous and stuff...
Plus, she said she wants to play the French so unless she's gonna play with a bump.lol

At first I thought she was having boyfriend problems, but that was shot down when I saw her with Hank this week.  I wonder if it's "parent" problems?  as in her mom or dad?  I wish she wouldn't be so mysterious and just let inquiring fans know! :))

Or maybe she had a fall-out with one of them?

Why would that cause her to pull out of the tournament?
