AceShowbiz - Serena Williams knows how to entertain her fans while at the same time getting real about the seriousness of the coronavirus crisis. The athlete took to her Instagram Stories on Thursday, March 19 to give an update from her self-quarantine while jokingly suggesting that she might have developed multiple personalities.
In the videos, the mother of one opened up about how the pandemic has affected her emotions. "It started out with me feeling like 'oh it can't really affect me,' " she said. "And then suddenly Indian Wells was cancelled and I was like 'oh ok that's weird but I have a little time off and I'm going to enjoy that time off.' "
She went on sharing, "One cancellation led to another and another and then all this anxiety that I'm feeling." She revealed, "Now I've been social distancing for a really long time, like two weeks, and now everything little thing makes me crazy."
Serena claimed she has got a little paranoid whenever someone sneezes around her. "And by anxiety I mean I'm just on edge every time anyone sneezes around me or coughs. It's crazy," she admitted.
The 38-year-old tennis player then recalled one particular moment with her daughter Alexis Olympia that got her feeling conflicted. "I don't hang out with anyone so when I say anyone I mean, my daughter. She coughed, I got angry and gave her a side-eye. I gave her that 'angry Serena' and then I got sad," she said.
"I was like 'is she ok? Is there something wrong with my daughter? Is there anything I can do?' I just don't know what to do, so instead of being relaxed and I'm really under a ton of stress," Serena continued, before concluding the videos as saying "I never expected to be relaxed but it is what it is. We'll get through this, we have to and I just wanted to update you on what I was doing."
As she began the Stories, Serena was wearing a white T-shirt with the word "Legendary" spelled across the chest paired with a red tutu, and a medium-length wig. Throughout the videos, she changed her wig and skirt multiple times, but by the time she ended it, she suggested that she did it without realizing it. "Wait a minute. Something...changed?" she asked while looking at herself in the camera.
Commenting on the videos, Serena's fans praised her sense of humor amid the crisis. "I wish I had multiple personalities to keep me company lucky you," one wrote. Another expressed her/his admiration to her, "loll i love her queen of tennis period."
"Always Beautiful! Keep the sense of humor," another user praised her. Someone else called the videos "refreshing," adding that "we all bored AF!" Another person remarked, "She's so funny."
