Fellow tennis legend John McEnroe makes a cameo appearance with his trademark "You cannot be serious!" exclamation as Serena Williams sees off a selection of ball-firing robots in this amusing ad for DirecTV. Attired as the superhero character Wonder Woman, the US player sets her formidable focus on overcoming the formidable-looking rogue machines, to promote the broadcast company's new streaming service of live TV and on-demand content. How do you think it comes across? Good fun? The winner of 23 Grand Slam singles titles said: “I’m always juggling my priorities as a mom, athlete and designer so I am a big fan of products like DIRECTV STREAM that help make my life more simple." Williams, 40 on September 26, 2021, also said she had "so much fun" playing Wonder Woman for the spot, which riffs off a scene in the 2020 movie 'Wonder Woman 1984'. The superhero character in the 1970s action TV series was played by Lynda Carter, after a 1974 movie in which Cathy Lee Crosby played Wonder Woman in a first for a female superhero on TV.
