Why the hell is she trying to tell these two young women how to live their lives. Serena already dissed her in her last interview why don't these people learn and understanding that V&S are not single minded individuals.
“I dispute the perception that the Williams sisters are only around because of these outside interests,” Carillo said. “They are around in spite of that.”
Carillo, a former professional player herself, says she believes that elite athletes should live single-mindedly and not waste time, especially when they are as talented as the Williamses.
Serena came into the Open with eight Grand Slam titles. Venus, after beating Serena at Wimbledon this year, has seven. Ten of those combined 15 major titles came by 2003.
“I thought they were going to break every record and co-own the tour forever,” Carillo said. “Take the case of Steffi Graf. Look what she left behind. She didn’t take a break.”
Graf, who turned pro at 13 and retired at 30, owns 22 career Grand Slam titles. But Venus and Serena do not talk about that record.
Carillo admits she is imposing her own narrative on them — but perhaps we do, too, if only because we are never sure who they are or what they ultimately want. For now, Serena is clear.
