As it turns out, the tennis champ is also a Target champ, and has some simple advice when it comes to the prime time to shop at the retail giant.

"I love to shop there late at night," she recently told InStyle. "No one is ever in the store then, so you can have as much fun as you want."

And for the always-fashionable and always-busy mom, fun means scoring bargains on some of her go-to fashion and beauty essentials.

"Target's swimsuits are cool and fit me great," she told the publication.

“Beauty wise ... they literally have everything,” she said. "Anything that says ‘curls,’ ‘manage your curls,’ ‘proud of your curls,’ I’m drawn to it.”

Another must-have product for the grand slam queen is coconut oil, which she considers a life-changing find.

"I’ll go home, dig my hand in the coconut oil, spread it on my face, and (the makeup) falls off," she explained. "It also works as a moisturizer for me.”

That's only a couple of ways she incorporates it into her routine.

Williams is also a proponent of co-washing, aka conditioner-only washing, and uses coconut oil and shea butter for custom conditioning creations.
