Sports superstars ready for Super Bowl bowling battle

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Serena Williams is normally the one in a major league match, but the seven-time Wimbledon winner will be looking forward to watching the Super Bowl with her commercial.

“It’s always good to see other athletes come out and do their thing on such a big stage,” she said in a recent interview. “I’ve been on the big stage so many times, it’s so cool to see other athletes on this stage.”

In addition to watching the Bengals-Rams game, Williams will be on the lookout for his Super Bowl commercial. Big tennis stars in a Michelob ULTRA commercial along with several other superstar athletes such as Peyton Manning, Jimmy Butler and Nneka Ogwumike for competitive bowling.

The Williams ad is part of Michelob’s three-advertising series. She wants it to express the meaning of joy.

“It’s critical for us to continue to have that,” said Williams, who starred in a Bumble commercial in 2019 and last year’s Michelob ULTRA commercial, which preached joy.

“I believe a big factor in success is joy,” she continued. “I go back and look at the tournaments I’ve invested in – like the ones I’ve never lost a set in – I was so happy.”

Williams, a native of Compton, Calif., said the Super Bowl will help grow Inglewood, where Sunday’s game will be played.

“It’s so important to the community,” she said. “With the LA Rams in it, it’s just like, ‘How does this happen?’ It’s going to be an intense match, I think it will be the one that will go down in history.
