SERENA WILLIAMS stunned friends by serving up cockroaches rather than aces at a beach party – with one guest almost vomiting at the taste.
The sporting legend, 41, is “evolving away from tennis” – but few expected a creepy crawly-crunching controversy to be part of that change.

And the bug-munching moment threatened to backfire when pal Justus nervously took up the challenge of eating one.
She popped one of the fried insects in her mouth – only to quickly put her hand to her lips as if she was going to be sick.
In a clip posted on Serena‘s Instagram page, Justus can be heard saying: “I can’t – I’ll throw up.”
Serena suggested her friend needed a chip to help the cockroach go down.
But instead the friend’s main remedy seemed to be a double shot of liquor.
American 23-time Grand Slam winner Serena bugged rivals on the court with her power and supreme all-round game during 27 years as a pro.
And she did the same to her friends with her culinary offering of the high-protein ‘snack’ during an exotic seaside night.
After so long delivering the best on a court, few expected her to be dishing out such a pest on a plate.
But the icon helped guests overlook the cockroach-tasting by joining in moonlit dancing.
Serena swapped from a pink jumper to blue dress as she relaxed just weeks after what could have been her final hurrah at the US Open.
