The gourmet food Serena Williams ordered off the hotel room-service menu for dogs looked good enough for her to eat - so that's exactly what the top-ranked tennis player did.

Then she got very sick.

Williams posted a video Wednesday on Snapchat showing the salmon and rice dish she ordered for her Yorkshire Terrier at their hotel during the Italian Open.

Noting how good it looked, she tells the camera: "I ate a spoonful. Don't judge me!" 

Williams says the bite tasted weird, "a little bit like a house-cleaner thing," but she ate it anyway.

But within two hours, Williams had to run to the bathroom.

However, she recovered in time to beat fellow American Christina McHale 7-6 (7), 6-1 in the third round Thursday.

The dog, Chip, appeared fine watching Williams from her player's box.

Williams says of the doggy menu: "I don't think it's consumable for humans. They should have wrote that!"
