Memory Lane: Jamie Foxx serenades Serena

Memory Lane is a recurring feature in which we dig through photo and video archives for classic moments.

Here’s a nice dusty gem from the YouTube vault that’s well worth a watch. Jamie Foxx successfully mortified Serena Williams on back-to-back ESPYs in 2003 and 2004, smoothly asking her, in musical form, to be his tennis ball.

If you’re anything like me, you’ll catch yourself singing, “15-love, 30-40 love, advantage you, ’til you get to DEUUUUUUUUUUUUUCE” for the rest of the day. There are worse fates.

    Funny. But you're right. Serena looked tickled yet embarrassed. And I can only imagine her mortification at that ending. She squirmed and flailed her hands to no avail. Jamie's talented, but that very last was a bit much. Thank goodness it was edited out for tv!
