One of the worst-kept secrets in tennis is that Serena Williams loves the '80s. Williams took some time out of her training schedule this week to dust off her leg warmers and Tina Turner wig and throw a little '80s party for her friends.

So what happens at a Serena Williams '80s party? Lots of costumes and lots of suspect dancing.

Noticeably absent from the party was Serena's coach (and unconfirmed amour), Patrick Mouratoglou. The Frenchman is in Mauritius for the Mouratoglou Academy's preseason training block. Looks like Williams opted to skip the Mauritius trip to stay Stateside for her training.

Williams will begin her 2014 season by defending her title at the Brisbane International, which begins on Dec. 29.

Here are some more photos of Serena's '80s obsession, taken from last year. She definitely has the color scheme down pat.
