Tennis legend Serena Williams kicked off the first day of the Australian Open with a win as she defeated her Russian opponent Anastasia Potapova in Melbourne Park. However, it was her koala-themed nail art which grabbed everyone’s attention. According to many, Serena Williams’ cute nail-art was a nod to the massive bushfires which have affected Australia badly off late. The devastating bushfire has far wiped out more than 25,000 koalas. According to Daily Mail, the former World No.1 helped raise nearly $5 million for the people of Australia.
After her match, fans took to Twitter and praised Serena Williams for her efforts. However, some of them wondered how Serena Williams delivers an incredible game despite flaunting those long and beautiful nails. One even said that Williams is so talented that she can defeat opponents and look good at the same time.
