Serena Williams loves to ‘Roar’ on court

Serena Williams is a Katy Perry fan

Serena Williams is the two-time defending champion at the US Open and is going for her third-straight championship at the 2014 tournament and her 18th Grand Slam title.  She is very energetic on the tennis court, and you can often hear her signature ‘come on!’ when she wins a big point.  But this year, you have been able to hear Serena ‘roar’ as well.

After her three wins thus far in the 2014 US Open, the Katy Perry song ‘Roar” has played, and it isn’t by mistake.  “Incidentally, I love that song Roar. I listen to it all the time. I love Katy Perry. I think it’s an inspiring song. I love the words to it. I think it’s great.”

Katy Perry has a pretty talented fan in Williams.  If Serena is to indeed claim her third-straight US Open title, then we will hear ‘Roar’ four more times after her matches, starting today versus Kaia Kanepi in the fourth round this afternoon.

    Great read. I’m watching the US Open at 8:34 EST and Serena is in a dog fight against this Italian named Pennetta. This has been a crazy tourney for the women’s bracket. Go USA.
