#BossMoves: Serena Williams Eats Dog Food, Falls ill And Still Wins At Italian Open

Before the Italian Open, Thursday (May, 12), Serena Williams ate her dog’s food which made her very ill.

Though the tennis star still went on to beat Christina McHale in the third round of the Italian Open in Rome at 7-6 (9-7) 6-1.

Sharing her plight via Snapchat, Williams talked about her decision to taste a salmon and rice dish offered in her hotel’s ‘doggy menu.’
She began with, “Before you judge me, look at it. It looks good”, then went on to post,

I thought ‘what the heck, I’m gonna try a piece, it looks good.

Fast forward two hours, I just ran to the toilet like I thought I was going to pass out. I mean, It did taste weird…. it tasted kind of like house cleaner.

I don’t know what they put in these dog foods, but Chip liked it…I don’t think it is consumable.
Christina McHale played against Serena Williams after pushing Williams to three sets in their last meeting at the Miami Open.

McHale had beaten former world number one Ana Ivanovic to reach the third round in Italy.
