Serena Williams Plays Tennis in High Heels and Fitted Skirt

World No. 1 Serena Williams was up against host David Letterman in a tennis game outside the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York City on Wednesday afternoon. Can you guess who won? It must have been a fun match for the two!

Tennis is Serena’s game, so playing it in heels and a fitted skirt was effortless for her. The 32-year-old professional tennis player wore a figure-hugging striped skirt and a crop tee that flaunted her beautifully toned abs! She styled the sexy outfit with gold jewelry, including oversized hoop earrings and a long chain necklace hidden under her top. Wearing her curled locks down, Serena opted for simple makeup with nude lips and dark lashes.

We love Serena on and off court! She always has her game face on when playing, but for red carpet events and interviews, she knows how to up her style game. She’s clearly one of the few fashionable tennis players of today!

We’re glad that the athlete’s heels didn’t break during her match with David Letterman. Her Balmain bamboo-like heels measuring about 4.15 inches were sturdy enough to keep Serena on her feet as she showed off her tennis skills. The intricately woven cotton ropes make them one of a kind. These gladiator-inspired sandals are finished with leather trims, open toes, and back zipper fastenings.
