Venus Williams is tuning up for the US Open talking a walk on the bad side.

The normally stoic Venus channels her inner Johnny Mac in this irreverant training video she posted to her YouTube channel titled “Why I am Becoming the Bad Girl of Tennis.”

Working with coach Eric Hechtman, the 40-year-old Venus works on her racquet slamming, staring down the opponent and how to protest unfair calls by the chair umpire.

While Venus has never been a racquet smasher and seldom uses Hawk-Eye to challenge calls she did pick tennis bad boy Nick Kyrgios as her dream mixed doubles partner in a past interview.

Kyrgios didn’t make the trip to New York so a Venus-Nick mixed doubles show will have to wait.
