Serena Williams Enjoys Street Fighter The Old Way: On The SupaBoy

If there’s one way to gain some cred with the gamers, fighting game community or the internet in general, Serena Williams just aced all three.

On her Instagram over the weekend, female tennis champion Serena Williams posted a simple, but very effective, photo showcasing how she likes to spend weekends with her mother.

She might have a bit of trouble focusing on the family, however, because the photo is basically a full-screen shot of the very awesome SupaBoy portable SNES console — complete with a Street Fighter 2 cartridge.

Saturday with Mom, ?

Tennis World reported that Williams was playing the classic beat-em-up with her mother, although the photo only suggests that Williams is playing in her family’s presence. Williams is currently enjoying the tennis off-season, and it’s nice to see that firing off a few hadouken’s is just as cathartic for world-class athletes as it is for average gamers.
