For the low, low price of a million dollars, Serena Williams' record-setting serve can be yours. OK, not really, of course. A day after winning her fifth Wimbledon singles title while raising her ace total to 102 for the tournament, Williams is joking she's putting that powerful stroke up for sale. Speaking at the All England Club champions' dinner on Sunday night, Williams says: ''If you guys want to buy my serve, you can get it. It's only a million dollars per bottle. They're available.'' Williams and men's singles champion Roger Federer made brief remarks to guests at the dinner at a London hotel. All England Club Chairman Philip Brook notes that Williams finished with more aces for the tournament than Federer.
