Serena in Hong Kong

Yeah it is true, she is stopping by Hong Kong and should have arrived here by now. She will hold a press conference around this time and tonight she will go on a shopping trip (be sure the Hong Kong frenzy media will be following her everywhere she goes LOL)
tomorrow night she will hold a demostration night showing all the moves and shot serena has in an exhibition/training section, unfortuneately I can't get hold of any tickets coz it looks like they only sell to people who will purchase the Salem Open in hong Kong for men later next week

Serena rules the world

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

well she just hold a press conference in a famous hotel in hong Kong (sorry forgot the name) she talked about her aim for next year saying she has no pressure and she will be happy as long as she can win one slam next year. She also reconfirmed that Venus is okay and they are and will still be very close no matter what happen on the tennis court

Fun report Wongqks. Shopping. Really why
not Singapore too?. We have the best selection,
and prices for watches here.

Great to see her make the effort to do the press
conference in HK. We may not agree about Serena's
on court persona;but off court she's doing a great
job of taking the responsibility of Champion to the
public.

Alot of people didn't think she would do the Toyota
Princess Cup since..hey it's only a Tier 2 etc.. But,
I'm really happy to see a top player give Asia the
attention it deserves; not just when their on a losing
streak or unable to make the draw in a European
tournament. I think Asia WTA fans deserve something
back.

Thanks Serena for giving the kids on this side of
the tennis planet a nod, and a wink.

If we look back on past years...not many winners of
the US OPEN did an Asia tour after winning in NYC.
I like that Serena is doing a mini Asia tour; it shows me
that she's aware that tennis is beyond just the USA and
Europe.

this is so cool. i just hope she's cured of her shopping addiction or else she'll just have to win a few more Slams to help pay the bills...

Oh no... now I know why she has been winning so much... her shopping bills are too high...


But seriously, where does she store all the things she buys?
