I just saw her and this is what she said:

She will be back playing tennis later this year (didn't give a date) and her rehab is going well

Response to MN's comment that would like to play the sisters in doubles because she and Venus aren't good doubles players. Serena said that she and Venus have won the career Grand Slam in doubles and have nothing to prove to anyone.

Repsonse to the fact that the FO final ratings this year were down 39% from last year when she and Venus played. Serean said that she and Venus have brought a new fan base to tennis.

There was more but I can't remember.

Damn! I missed it. Must have been very short.

Both Serena and Venus are so mature and carry themselves very well.

The haters will keep hating.

Knizzle, did you see Serena on CNN? She look fabulous and she gave a great interview. Ofcourse, Martina N said something negative about the sisters that they are not good in doubles and she would like to challenge them in doubles. Serena's answer was as usual very dipomatic. She also said she is not rushing the healing process she is taking her time to fully recover. They also showed the FO fisaco cheating again and ofcourse, again, Serena said she is over that and she is moving on. She's such a lovely young lady. Great interview. What channel is Venus suppose to be on. I am not watching the open and I need to see a Williams.

I don't think so, but I think they will be showing clips of it for the next couple of days.

Serena also was surprised that Pete was going to retire and she said he was someone she looked up to. She also said that she was disappointed to not be at the USO, but that she will be back soon enough. Paula implied that she and her sister will be missed at this year's Open.

Did Nav say this shit in 2001? I don't understand because her and Serena have played doubles together.

Martina Navritalova seems to have alzhiemers. Her and Kusnestzova played Venus and Serena at the Austrailan Open this year where they were clocked 3&1 by the sisters. They also played at Wimbeldon in 2000 where she here partner also lost handidly to the sisters (who won the title that year).
