After her 6-1, 6-1 win over Camille Pin of France in the first round of the Australian Open on Monday, Serena Williams was more excited to talk about her appearance in the TV sitcom “All of Us,” than about her match. Williams said she played two roles in the show, which is produced by Will Smith and Jada Pinkett.
“I never do comedy,” Williams said. “They have been begging me to do a show a lot, but I never got the right script.”
She plays herself, and her assistant.
“Her assistant was named Wanda, she was kind of … out there, wore a really loud blond wig. She was really eccentric. I really got to stretch my comedic roles. I ad-libbed so much.”
Asked if hers was an Emmy-winning performance, Williams said: “Definitely not.”
