Serena Williams shares picture of her swollen ankle

serena williams ankle

Serena Williams shared a picture on her Twitter account Wednesday night of her swollen right ankle and, as you can see, the area is massive in size.

Williams didn’t add much context to the photo, only writing “ouch” in her tweet.

We don’t know when the picture was taken, but what we do know is that Williams rolled her right ankle during her first-round match at the Australian Open last week. She managed to reach the quarterfinals despite the ankle problem, but the swelling coupled with back spasms may have contributed to her three-set loss to Sloane Stephens on Wednesday in Melbourne.

    As a photographer, the picture was taken 1-2 inches away from the ankle. It is EXTREMELY misleading! The ankle might NOT be swollen AT ALL!
    Serena is the tour whiner.  I challenge her to post a picture from 1-2 FEET away.

    why should she lie. she is still the best. the youngsters will come along in due time. give the woman a break.

  • Dollar Bill

    She needs to man up and accept that she got her @$$ whooped in a big tournament. She’s never gracious in defeat.

  • Doc_Ott

    As a photographer and a physician, i can tell you that there is swelling present as evidenced by the rounded shape of the ankle, but as Mike said, the close photo makes it look to be much more that it really is.  Bottom Line: There is swelling but can’t judge degree.

    I would never post a picture with my feet in it if my feet were as gross looking as hers.  (vomit)  Next time leave your socks on.

    As a true tennis fan, Serena’s bad attitude always get me. She is a sore looser and the most arrogant tennis player in history, no doubt along with lack of tennis etiquette.

    Somebody notify the BFRO — we just found out what’s been making all of those mysterious footprints in the woods!!!

    Funny how her ankle is normal size when you watch the matches she played (as I did) in this tournament. You can’t hide something as big as that which makes me suspect the picture was taken right after the injury a week and a half ago.  Such a sore loser – I can’t WAIT until she retires.  You’d think she would spend some of her fortune on pedicures instead of those gaudy earrings she is always wearing.

    Interesting comment. I’m an ER doctor, and have taken photos of numerous injuries and unusual rashes. I just think the camera angle and proximity to her [?] lateral malleolus results in a facetiously appearing swollen area.
    Why isn’t there another picture, which isn’t an ultra close-up? I’m waiting…

    I didn’t know Serena had a twin brother named Austin! LOL 
    Lots of people feel that Serena always has an excuse when she loses.
    Name calling usually says more about the one calling names…

    This photo looks suspect to me and I would have never showed this picture with all those corns on her toes. She should have seen a podiatrist by now.

  • 4YourView

    Srena needs to see a podiatrist to have her hideous corns removed.

    “Give her a break” when it appears that she’s misleading her [naive] fans?

     You are so right.  She lacks any type of etiquette – she still doesn’t  know that the winner of the game is the last one to shake the referees’ hand.

    i think that it is time for her to retire and nurse all her injuries……
