Looks like ESPN is going to have a field day with their “Not top 10″ countdown. Right after we found the video of Dwight Howard airballing a free throw, we get this one of Serena Williams hitting herself in the face with her own racket. It’s no surprise that something like this would happen considering the intensity that Williams plays with.

After winning her gold medal yesterday Serena Williams took it to the streets and decided that c-walking would be the best celebration. Here you go…
“WIMBLEDON, England — Serena Williams won her fifth Wimbledon title with an explosive start and a fighting finish to beat Poland’s Agnieszka Radwanska 6-1, 5-7, 6-2 on Saturday.

After pounding away a backhand winner after just over two hours to end Radwanska’s resistance and secure a 14th Grand Slam singles title, Williams collapsed backward to the court before climbing through the crowd to celebrate with her family and friends.”
