Serena Williams' foot cancels Villanova, parties in heels

That foot injury that kept Serena Williams from appearing at Villanova's Pavilion Tuesday didn't keep her from wearing heels to her ESPY Awards party Monday in Bel Air.

The Wimbledon champ was supposed to take part in the Philadelphia Freedoms event in an exhibition match, but organizers said that she bailed due to a foot injury. Williams missed three other World Team Tennis events due to what appears to be a small cut on her right foot. We can't imagine that the high heels that Williams was photographed wearing (with a small Band-Aid on her foot) at her party Monday or at the Saturday wedding of Nuggets star Carmelo Anthony and former MTV personality LaLa Vazquez would have made walking any easier for her.

"She loves World Team Tennis and loves playing every year, and was disappointed she couldn't play," said World Team Tennis spokeswoman Rosie Crews. Williams' spokeswoman said that she had "no comment at this time" on the extent of the injury.
