Not even a foot can keep Serena Williams away from a good party.

Dressed to impress in a sexy animal print mini dress and a matching black cast, the 28-year-old tennis great hosted Hamptons Magazine’s cover party at Pranna Restaurant in New York City on Wednesday (August 25).

Joined by the likes of hip hop mogul Russell Simmons, Serena partied the night away as they celebrated the athlete’s sexy new black and white cover.

In the mag, Serena opens up about how her injury gave her some much-needed time to relax.

“I can actually use the recovery time,” she says. “I’m so active trying to produce television shows now, writing and playing tennis—and on top of that, winning Grand Slams—that it’s good for me to just have some time off. At first I dreaded it, but I’m sleeping a lot, which is good, and I’m being babied.”

As for what the future holds? “A year from now, I see myself trying to compete and win Grand Slams, but maybe not playing such a full schedule so I can focus on the other things in my life, like doing more in show business,” she says.
