Venus in Rachael Ray Mag.

Venus Williams

The tennis pro serves up healthful fare from the family fridge.
Rachael Ray: In addition to being one of the world's most amazing tennis players—congrats on winning Wimbledon, by the way—you have an interior-design business. Is this your dream kitchen, then?

Venus Williams: No—well, I like this kitchen, but I'll probably get my dream kitchen if I get married and build a house. Serena and I have lived here for seven years, and we're too busy to move! So until I get married, I'm living here.

RR: Are you getting married anytime in the near future?

VW: I'm 27—I think that's still too young. I figure I'll wait until I'm 30.

RR: So, who does all the cooking?

VW: Serena does. She'll cook chicken or fish or sometimes gumbo, and I just sit back and enjoy the benefits.

RR: Nice.

VW: But every now and then, I'll cook something, like a roast. That's my leg of lamb marinating in the fridge.

RR: You have a ton of turkey hot dogs—and I hear you have one of those old-fashioned hot-dog turner things.

VW: We bought the hot-dog turner for football season last year—Serena always wanted one, so we had people over for the playoffs and made popcorn and hot dogs.

RR: That's awesome. It sounds like you entertain a lot. Who's your dream dinner guest?

VW: I'd invite my favorite band, 311. I'd cook the guys whatever they wanted—no matter what!

RR: You know, we see a lot of celeb fridges packed with water bottles, but I think you guys take the cake.

VW: Yeah, we don't drink anything really besides water ... or Gatorade, since we're constantly at practice. Sometimes, we'll drink orange juice, but we?re pretty strict on the water thing.

RR: What do you think of all those fancy new vitamin waters?

VW: I like VitaminWater—especially the purple ones.

RR: And what about the Lactaid? Do you guys prefer that over regular old milk?

VW: We keep that for guests who can't tolerate regular milk.

RR: I'm jealous of your friends. They have a pretty good deal when they come over.

VW: Yeah, we try to think about others.
