Serena Williams suffers swimsuit malfunction

Frolicking in the sea on a Barbados beach, Tennis ace 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, Daily Mail online reported.

Her relaxed attitude must have been a relief as the 28-year-old player is not particularly known for her sense of humour.

Serena has been hit with a record penalty in women's tennis for her US Open outburst.

She was fined 50,000 pounds 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.

The fine, which could double if Williams commits another major misdemeanour at a grand slam event, was however, lower than had been widely expected, the report said.

Williams' earnings from the singles and doubles events at the tournament were 334,307 pounds, so the penalty was covered by what she made from that fortnight alone.
