Venus Williams: "I Blame Monica Seles!!"
Venus was asked about screaming on court...
Q. You're among the players who tend to scream a little bit on court. Is there a meaning to that? I mean, does it give you energy, or is it more like a weapon against the opponent?
VENUS WILLIAMS: Yeah, I started because Monica Seles was my favorite player when I was 10. So I started grunting, and that was 20 years ago. I haven't stopped.
I blame Monica.
Cute. Do you think players grunt to just grunt or is there a motive?
I tell you when I play, I grunt but it helps me keep a hitting rhythm.
