Thumbs up

Thanks Tennischick
I saw the pictures before but didn't read the article, so I am glad that you created this thread...

Here's a part from Venus that I particurlary enjoyed reading

"... Before a match, you see a lot of players talking and strategizing with their coaches. I walk out of the locker room and go out there alone. I get to think for myself. However, this insular world Venus has created with her family has actually caused animosity with the other players. I cant exactly say Im friends with the other girls, she divulges. Im friendly, but I dont have their phone numbers. All of the girls are nice, but everybody has a little something to say.
Nor does she take herself seriously as a tennis star. Maybe I dont have a normal job or existence, but Im a regular person, she declares. Its important for me and Serena to be normal, and not to think of ourselves as special people. If I expect to be treated differently then Im going to need a major reality check in the future. That happens to many stars. Ive seen tennis players who get a little crazy and think that they are all that, which they arent. Its nice to get those extraspecial privileges, but I dont expect them. Im not buying Lamborghinis and Ferraris. Some people get caught up with that.
----
Venus really has her head together......... Always a pleasure reading her interviews! Best Wishes Venus
