Sometimes, you just need a caffeine fix, and it doesn’t matter where you are or what you’re doing.
At the Hopman Cup, held yesterday in Western Australia, Serena Williams ordered a coffee at the end of the first set. The tennis pro said, “Is it illegal to order an espresso? I mean, I don’t know if it’s allowed—is it allowed? I’m tired.”
After Williams ordered the double shot “as black as it gets,” the announcer commented, “This is one of the funniest things I’ve ever heard.”
It’s been a big week for Australians and coffee, given that Starbucks just announced it would begin serving flat whites in the U.S.
