After an intense WTA Tour, championship winner Serena Williams finally had a chance to tour Istanbul.
On Monday, Serena was joined by her mother Oracene, her physiotherapist and her manager to take part in an open-air bus tour of Istanbul. After the three-hour tour, Serena visited Sultanahmet and went shopping at the Grand Bazaar.
Known for her great love of authentic and silk rugs, Serena paid a special visit to the rug shop Halıca Mağazası in Florya.
The eight-story shop was closed for Serena's exclusive shopping visit where for over two hours the tennis-pro was given a show of over 100 rugs to choose from. A pro at bargaining, Serena was able to bring down the original price of 137,500 for the five silk rugs from Bursa she purchased to 68,750 dollars.
