The newly resurfaced 2016 video from YouTubers Dude Perfect showcases Serena Williams' phenomenal accuracy and talent, and shows why no amateur has a hope of scoring a point on her.

Even if they're one in eight random men on the internet.


Given Williams' 23 Grand Slam wins, this may seem like something that very few people would aspire to. It would seem that is not the case, however.

A recent poll of UK citizens by YouGov found that 1 in 8 men (12%) thought that they could score a point on Serena in a tennis match.

In case anyone has any doubts about Serena's astounding tennis abilities, here is Dude Perfect's video to clear up the confusion:

Even with all 5 of the guys on the court, they're barely able to even think about keeping up with Serena.

Despite her utterly wiping the floor with them, the guys of Dude Perfect are so enthusiastic about collaborating with Williams, and with her amazing skills!

Twitter users were thoroughly impressed with Serena's performance after Rob Bennet shared a clip from the video.


They also loved how supportive everyone was of Serena and that everyone was having fun.




The video renewed some people's respect for Williams' level of tennis skill.

The hubris required for some random dude on the street to assume that they can best a professional athlete at their chosen sport was astounding to some.

Serena may have been having fun and thoroughly enjoying herself in the video, but that didn't hurt her ability to perform in the slightest. There's no denying that her tennis skills are the real thing.

She has devoted her entire life to the game of tennis, even working through blood clots and other health complications after the birth of her daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian, with husband Alexis Kerry Ohanian, in 2017.

If anyone hopes to match her skill on the court they will have to be just as devoted and put in just as much effort as Serena.

Disciplining children in a way that will make them reflect on their behavior without taking it too far is definitely a difficult line to walk. Some parents have apparently had to get rather creative to get the point across.

It's next to impossible to get through life without regrets. Whether it was a missed opportunity to ask someone out or missing a chance to say goodbye to a loved one before they walked on, missed opportunities are part of life.

We sometimes regret decisions and life choices too, but the missed opportunities always seem to hit the hardest when we look back on them.

Accusations of sexual harassment are serious things, and not tools for manipulating a game, but two Survivor contestants ignored that to make the game go their way.

Elizabeth Beisel and Missy Byrd voiced concerns over touching by another contestant, Dan Spilo, which now appear to have been either greatly exaggerated or completely made up to manipulate other players.

We all need a pick-me-up now and then. The news can be depressing and so many of us are used to hearing nothing but messages of gloom and doom from the moment we step outside.

Parents are everything, well good parents, parents who are destined to be parents. Some people really shouldn't be parents. That's for another time to discuss. When we are all born our parental units have such high hopes and plans.... and more often then not, the spawn will choose the adverse path. When you're children choose the adverse path, it has to be harrowing, but, a true parent finds a way, even with disappointment. But that doesn't mean you can't chat about it.

So flying can be a handful and a half. We can't travel with anything but our knickers anymore, well that is what it feels like. Sometimes we forget what we've packed, especially if we've packed in a hurry. It feels like the simplest of necessities is now a HUGE no-no. So once and awhile we're flagged with a thing or two that could raise a few eyebrows. (For no good reason!)
