Serena Williams was recently in the news for all the wrong reasons after her outburst at the chair umpire in the final of the 2018 US Open. Serena not only lost the final to Naomi Osaka of Japan but also smashed her racquet and accused umpire of sexism.
Now that the issue has been done and dusted, the 23 time Grand Slam winner has hit the headlines yet again for posing nude in a video. Serena could be heard singing “I Touch Myself” in the video to raise awareness for breast cancer.
For #BreastCancerAwarenessMonth I’ve recorded a version of The Divinyls global hit “I Touch Myself”!

In a video posted, Williams covers her breasts with her hands while singing a version of Australian band The Divinyls’ 1991 hit in support of Breast Cancer Network Australia.
“This Breast Cancer Awareness Month I’ve recorded a version of The Divinyls global hit ‘I Touch Myself’ to remind women to self-check regularly,” wrote Williams on the post. The video was viewed more than 1.3 million times in the first 10 hours after it was posted early Sunday.
Serena, who turned 37 recently decided to pull out of the China Open in Beijing.
