All hail the queen!

Just ahead of her attempt at winning a record 23rd major title at the U.S. Open, tennis great and one woman Tour de Force, Serena Williams, swung by Niketown NYC for a light-hearted chat with actor-comedian JB Smoove.


The ‘Four Courses With JB Smoove’ host kept the crowd of adoring Serena fans entertained with his antics and off-the-wall commentary.

As one of the talents Nike selected for its “Unlimited” campaign, which “applauds the perseverance of the world’s greatest athletes,” #UnlimitedSerena was all about fans “embracing their ‘unlimited’ mindset” and giving them the opportunity to get to know the fierce tennis superstar on a personal level.

Even the Nike Staff got into formation for #UnlimitedSerena with their branded tees.

Serena Looking Snatched

Keeping it sporty chic in her athletic gear, Serena looked divine and snatched for the GAWDS, as JB queried the tennis and beauty icon on everything from her favorite color (pink) to her favorite foods.

Kevin Hart Message

When it comes to greatness, game recognize game! Comedian and box office topper Kevin Hart was among several celebrities and athletes — including NBA superstar Lebron James —  who had a special message for Serena. Check out King James’ video below:

Hill Harper 2Look who else was in the house! Actor and author Hill Harper stopped by to show love to Serena.

Unlimited Tacos

The self-admitted foodie, Serena disclosed to JB when she’s in New York, she loves to indulge in donuts from Dough bakery (Me too, ‘Rena!), and her favorite food is tacos.

Taco Smiles

Serena looked all too excited to see taco ingredients being wheeled out in front of face! Too bad the athletic stunner is in champ mode, so she can’t dive in at the moment.

Eager fan

A few lucky Serena fans even got to participate in a taco making contest with Serena as judge. They had to prepare the tennis champ’s favorite taco.
