Serena Williams shows off koala nail art at the Australian Open… after donating entire prize money from the Auckland Classic to bushfire relief

Serena Williams is arguably the most stylish tennis player of all time.

On Wednesday, the American champion proudly showed off her love for Australia through her nail art at the tennis in Melbourne. 

Taking to the court for her second round match in the Australian Open against Slovenia’s Tamara Zidanšek, the 38-year-old drew attention to a koala design on her ring finger.
