There's a great interview with Serena Williams just up on Fitness Magazine's website; hot cover shot ehh? The softer side of tennis' WTA #1 loves show tunes, dancing, karaoke and fashion but…don't let her fun loving white and pink Fiat fool you when she pulls up to a tennis court. 

“That’s when Serena Williams comes out and she’s nuts," says Williams. "That really upsets me. It’s not the real me…. Even for me, it’s shocking to see."

"I think of myself as two different people. There's the Serena Williams that everyone knows: She's crazy. She can't make a mistake. And she's angry and just not nice, to be honest. I'm only that person for three hours a day, when I'm on the court. The rest of the time I'm just Serena. I'm the class clown."
