"I love the Antwerp diamonds and the designer clothes" 12/02/03
In less than an hour, Venus Williams dismissed Slovanian Matevzic 6-1,6-1.
"It was a nice match. Perfect for getting into the rhythm." " The surface here is better than last year. A year ago, the ball would sometimes bounce the wrong way, but this year the surface is perfect. "
In the past few days, Venus took some time to spend on her hobbies:diamonds and fashion clothes. " Antwerp is one of my favourite cities.All those beautiful things make me melt.I haven't bought any diamonds yet. I hope I can take the tournament's trophy (a diamond racquet) home with me next year. How many diamonds are there on the racquet? 1.700? Waw!"
Dries Van Noten and Ann de Meulemeester are Williams' favourite fashion designers. Tuesday, she bought three suitcases packed with designer clothes. Venus: "The only thing I miss here, is the sun. It's always hot in California and Florida, but other than that, I'm having a great time here. The tournament is organised really well, the audience is great, and there's that awesome trophy waiting for me. What more could one want?"
