Serena Does The Splits In First-Round US Open Win

Serena Williams opened her defense mission at the US Open on Tuesday night with a 6-3, 6-1 victory over fellow American and rising teen star Taylor Townsend. Aside from her dominant performance, Serena impressed the Twitter-sphere with her animal-print dress and this ridiculous gymnastics move while trying to return a shot.

Warning: Don’t try this at home, kids, because there’s a good chance you won’t be able to get back up.

Despite Serena’s huge night, Townsend can at least head home with “tweet of the day” honors for her post after the match.

Either Townsend has a much different definition of “fun” than the rest of us or she has a really great sense of humor.
