I just watched it and they both looked great!
I love Serena's sweater and Venus' leather pant suit.

Robin Roberts interviewed them. She gave her condolences to them and their entire family. They seem to be dealing and coping by remembering what a wonderful person Yutunde was. While Venus was talking she said she didn't want to get to emotional. While Roberts was in the process of asking about how they and their family are coping Serena seemed to brace herself while Venus smiled the whole way through.

I'm happy to hear that they are coping
and remembering all the wonderful things about their sister.

They also talked about looking forward to getting back on the courts
and how eager they both are. Also, just about having fun out on the courts and enjoying themselves.

They were there for the Ronald McDonald's Kids Day and are going to be helping out and taking orders. It's celebrated in over 100 McDonald's all around the globe and profits go to the Ronald McDonald foundation and other various children's charities.

So proud!

I luckily last night feel a sleep while watching my soap tape. It was lucky because the tape played all night and then rewound itself and cut the VCR off leaving the TV on Ch. 3. So when I woke up to hear Venus and Serena on next I was able to watch the entire interview. My TV would never had been on an ABC channel otherwise and I would've missed it.

They were great but you can tell that was really the first time they talked publicly about their sister.

They really didn't say much but that they miss her, she will always be their sister. They know she will be with them on the court. Stuff like that. They really didn't couldn't say much. You could tell it was kind of painful for them.
