She didn’t have to hurt ’em like this, though.  Serena came out and tried to blind those Aussies with all the ice she had on:

Serena Williams produced a dazzling performance off the court at the Sydney International, sporting a 2.5 million US dollar diamond necklace.

The American world number two was well below her best in a stuttering 6-3, 6-7 (4/7), 7-5 first round win over Australian Samantha Stosur, but it was her sparkling necklace, replete with 427 diamonds, that sent the press photographers into a snapping frenzy.

The nine times grand slam champion made friends with a Sydney diamond designer in a visit to his boutique store over the weekend and was loaned the necklace to wear on the court.

But the thought of being entrusted with the multi-million dollar jewellery made the 27-year-old Williams nervous and she decided to only wear it at her post-match press conference away from the gaze of the fans.

“I told the jeweller that I would wear it at the press conference because I didn’t have the cash to be losing a three and a half million dollar necklace,” Williams said with a laugh.

“I’m just not comfortable with it and if it fell off I just would have go for it….. I wouldn’t care about the ball.”

The flamboyant American has worn diamonds on court before, causing some controversy at the 2004 US Open when one of her 40,000 US dollar earrings fell off during a match.

We are most definitely upset at ourselves for the life decisions we have made thus far that have resulted in us having to wear CZ jewelry items, but we ain’t mad at Serena one bit.  Do you’re thang, girl.

Those diamonds look nice, but her phatty looks good as well.  You can double dip below.
