Schiavone, Pennetta dance to 'Beat It'

Monday December 5th, 2011

Serena and Venus Williams continued their exhibition tour over the weekend, heading to Milan, Italy, to do some shopping and entertain the crowd alongside 2010 Roland Garros champion Francesca Schiavone and Flavia Pennetta. While it brought a smile to my face to see Venus back on court, it wouldn't be a Venus match without some sort of fashion misstep.

But it was the Italians who stole the show, when they busted some moves that Michael Jackson might be proud of. Emphasis on "might" there.

Here's another angle, with Serena and Venus taking in the show:

Of course, this isn't the first time the Italians have put on their dancing shoes. Do we not remember the Italian Fed Cup team doing a whole choreographed routine to Madonna's "Vogue" on Italian TV? Oh, well let's go ahead and relive that.

Grazie mille, ladies.
