Watch Serena Williams's terrible attempt at diving in a pool

Tuesday June 23rd, 2015

Serena Williams is a world class athlete, but that athleticism does not translate to all walks of life.

While she may be near unbeatable on all surfaces in tennis, her dominance falls off considerably when it comes to water.

The world No. 1 recently posted a video to Instagram of her attempt at diving and swimming, and it was not pretty.

Williams added the caption "Swimming... Not my thing... Lol working on my dive." to the video, which shows her trying to "dive" into the pool and making a brief attempt to swim before standing up in the pool.

Swimming... Not my thing... Lol working on my dive.

​It seems like the inability to dive is all in Williams's head, as she showed off her gymnastics skills in a video just a day earlier.
