Tennis great Serena Williams recently made a stop in an NBA locker room.
Earlier this week, Williams shared a social media video of her playfully crashing the Miami Heat’s locker room. Before the tennis icon left, she wrote a message on the team’s whiteboard.
“Yo, you wanna see something cool?” a TikTok voiceover asked before Williams said, “Winning on the team!” The voiceover then responded, “No? Well I’ma do it anyway.”

The video then showed Williams writing on the board, “Serena was here. Kick butt. Go heat.” She then signed the message by simply writing her name “Serena.”

The six-time U.S. Open champion said she hoped she helped uplift Miami’s NBA team.
“I got caught in the @Miami HEAT locker room. Hope my HEAT players were inspired! (And I hope my message was not erased lol),” Williams wrote in her video’s caption.

Miami seems to have taken Williams’ message in stride, as the team is currently on a six-game winning streak. On Tuesday, the Heat defeated the San Antonio Spurs 118-113 in the NBA in-season tournament.

Many believed it would be her final time playing competitive tennis, but Williams has since hinted that she could one day return to the sport she dominated for decades. In September 2022, she talked about how she admired Tom Brady’s short-lived retirement.
“I mean, you never know. I’ve just been saying that I think that Tom Brady started a really cool trend,” Williams said with a laugh while speaking with “Good Morning America.” “And the way he did. Huge.”
