Serena Williams trains with Iron Man and Thor’s hammer before 1st Wimbledon match

Serena Williams revealed how she prepares for the 1st round of Wimbledon after being away from tennis courts for one year, and, surprisingly, it doesn’t involve tennis courts but a lot of mental relaxation. Serena posted a video on her Instagram account showing her doing a LEGO puzzle of Thor’s Hammer and watching Iron Man.

“In case you’re wondering how I prep for Wimbledon: I relax my mind by doing LEGOs,” Serena says at the start of the video.

Then, she showed that she already started building the LEGO version of Thor’s hammer. “Thor: Love and Thunder is coming out so I want to be on brand,” said Williams.

Thor: Love and Thunder is a coming soon movie starring Chris Hemsworth, Chris Pratt as Peter Quill, Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, and many more well-known actors and actresses. “Thor enlists the help of Valkyrie, Korg and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster to fight Gorr the God Butcher, who intends to make the gods extinct,” read the movie’s IMDB summary.

And if that wasn’t enough, she then revealed a second tactic she uses for relaxing her mind ahead of the All England Championships: watching movies. And it’s not any movie, it’s Iron Man. “I love Marvel, so I’m watching Iron Man for like the third… no, actually, for the twentieth time,” said Williams.

Serena Williams’s first round opponent “is going for the win”

Serena Williams will meet WTA world number 113 Harmony Tan in the first round of Wimbledon. An easy draw at the first look, but Serena hasn’t played for a whole year and Tan’s coach knows that.

“She can’t be at the top level. She can’t be. That doesn’t mean she won’t play well. But it’s not possible for her to be at her best on the first ball she hits in singles for a year. After that, it’s still Serena. We know her serve, which can help her on grass,” said coach Sam Sumyk.
