Naked Serena sings Aussie classic

SERENA Williams has appeared topless in a new Instagram video in which she sings the classic Divinyls song, I Touch Myself.

The tennis legend wasn't trying to rack up likes on her page but rather drawing awareness for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Williams surprises with her singing talent and shows she may have another career after tennis.

She confessed that she was "uncomfortable" doing the video but believed in the cause that much that she couldn't say no.

"Yes, this put me out of my comfort zone, but I wanted to do it because it's an issue that affects all women of all colours, all around the world," she said. "Early detection is key - it saves so many lives. I just hope this helps to remind women of that."

"The music video is part of the I Touch Myself Project which was created in honour of celebrated diva, Chrissy Amphlett, who passed away from breast cancer, and who gave us her hit song to remind women to put their health first. The project is proudly supported by @BerleiAus for Breast Cancer Network Australia," she said

It comes after Williams' loss at the US Open where she called out chair umpire Carlos Ramos for what she said was a sexist penalty against her during her loss to Naomi Osaka.
