Serena Williams and I have a few things in common. We are both from Mid-Michigan and we enjoy espresso. During her match on Monday, January 5h, the tennis legend needed a boost that Gatorade could not provide. 

Williams lost the first set of her Hopman Cup match against Flavia Pennetta 0-6. The beautiful tennis star paused the match to ask if she could have a cup of espresso. The judges allowed it and it was a huge mistake for Pennetta.

Williams went forward after her cafe drink to win the match in last two sets, 6-3 and 6-0. Talk about a jolt of energy. After winning the match, the tennis star explained her decision for espresso according to Complex.

"I was just feeling it, so I just had to get some coffee into me. I just asked them to get me a shot of espresso -- I asked them if it was legal, because I've never done it before. I needed to wake up."

If you do not like drinking coffee, here is proof you need to incorporate in your diet. You could be the next superhero powered by espresso, you never know. I love Starbucks and would love to sit down and have some coffee or tea with you some day. Hit me up on my Twitter for my drink suggestions.
