Wimbledon 2012: Serena Williams jokes that her ace stroke is for sale

9th July 2012

• Women’s singles title winner addresses champions’ dinner
• Powerful service stroke is ‘only a million dollars per bottle’

A day after winning her fifth Wimbledon singles title while raising her ace total to 102 for the tournament, Serena Williams joked at the All England Club champions’ dinner on Sunday night that she is bottling that powerful stroke and putting it up for sale.

Williams told the attendees at the formal dinner at a London hotel. “I have a package at the door. If you guys want to buy my serve, you can get it. It’s only a million dollars per bottle. They’re available.”

Williams, who also won the women’s doubles title with older sister Venus, and the men’s singles champion, Roger Federer, made brief remarks to guests while interviewed by Virginia Wade, the 1977 women’s winner at the All England Club.
