Few people in the world have demonstrated a higher level of athleticism than six-time Olympic medalist Aly Raisman. At the 2012 and 2016 Olympics, the talented gymnast proved she was a dominant force on the world gymnastics stage by earning both individual and team medals.

If the video is any indication of how it went, let's just say the Williams sisters aren't looking over their shoulders. Still, it didn't stop Raisman from offering Serena her services on the doubles court if needed.
