Venus tactfully responds to Mauresmo's 'destiny' shenanigans at Wimbledon this year!

Did u guys remeber the interview Mauresmo gave to French journalists about the Williams sisters matches and her own destiny or what have u...

Check out Venus' response to a not so clever question from journalist during the Williams-Seles post match interview:

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q. When you look forward to playing Mauresmo - you've beaten her four times, the last four times you've met - how do you get yourself psychologically ready for a match like that?
VENUS WILLIAMS: I'm ready already. The past is behind me. All I can do is play better. All the wins I've had and nice times so far hopefully will go into the semifinal match.

Q. What do you see in Mauresmo's game? Do you think she's at that stage that she might penetrate the elite to join the group that's just below you and Serena?
VENUS WILLIAMS: I'm really not sure what her career will be. I know what mine can be, and that's more or less what I focus on. I suppose she has all the potential in the world to do exactly what she wants.
That's the best part about tennis, is that you make your own destiny. Whether she gets there or not I suppose is up to her. But I'm just focusing on me.

Q. What do you see when you play her?
VENUS WILLIAMS: What do I see? Oh... (Shrugging her shoulders).

Q. What is it like to play against her?
VENUS WILLIAMS: I enjoy it. We've had some great matches. I played her twice this year - I played her once in Paris and was real close. Antwerp, the first set was real close. So hopefully I'll be able to play well and get the match under my belt.
But it's a couple days from now. I have a lot of time to practice and work it out.

Q. What has been the difference in those matches? What does it come down to as far as your winning?
VENUS WILLIAMS: Well, I don't like to lose that often. I don't know. Been able just to play a little bit better. I guess that's it. I don't know.

Classy champion that Venus Williams.

Venus's sharp intelligence has always been her greatest strength. Her interviews are a joy to read.

Venus AND Serena are so full of class. (And that is coming from a non Williams fan, though also a non Williams Hater) They certainly had great parents.
