Video on ESPN. I'm sure the moderators won't by hypocritical enough to have this moved to the player forum considering how long that Serena transcript stayed in this forum.

Thank you for posting that! I caught the end of it on ESPN2 yesterday and wished I had had the chance to see the whole thing. Please take care of yourself, Vee.

"I want to do things on my own terms, I can't have anything take me out.
I have never given up and it's important for me to prove to myself that I can do this, and to prove to me that i'm a champion.
If I were just to sit down, lay down and give in, then I wouldn't have any respect for myself."
