Double fault: Serena Williams slips out of her bathing suit as she body boards with friends on a beach in Barbados

Messing around in the sea on a Barbados beach yesterday, Serena Williams suffered an embarrassing slip-up – when her strapless swimsuit rolled down.

Luckily for her friends, the tennis ace saw the funny side, laughing off the incident.

Her relaxed attitude must have been a relief – the 28-year-old isn’t known for being placid.

Yesterday, the world number one was hit with a record penalty in women’s tennis for her US Open outburst. 

Serena was fined £50,000 and given a suspended ban from Flushing Meadows over the next three years for the threats she directed at a line judge who foot-faulted her during her semi-final against Kim Clijsters.

While an immediate suspension was never likely to materialise, the fine, which could double if Williams commits another major misdemeanour at a grand slam event, was lower than had been widely expected.
