For Letterman fans, Venus and Serena Williams on tonight

July 6, 2009

This is one reason why David Letterman has the best late-night show -- he gets sports and not just the "ball" sports. Tonight he is hosting Wimbledon's winning women -- Serena and Venus Williams. The sisters won the women's doubles title and Serena beat Venus to win the singles title.

And one would not be wrong to tune in just to see what the sisters wear. They usually come up with some spiffy stuff for national television appearances.

Letterman always is on top of his sports. He's always sending staffers on the road to do funny bits from Yankees games or Super Bowls. He loves auto racing and invites race winners who most of us might not have heard of, but Dave doesn't care. He likes the sport, he has the guest.

:rolleyes: Diane Pucin perhaps you should live in the real world.

1) David Letterman hasn't had the best late night show in almost 15 years by ratings.
It took an almost suicidal quest by NBC just to get him there this summer and Conan O' Brian still had Kobe Bryant on.

2) Umm. The last time Serena won a slam she was on Jay Leno.
You must have forgotten Kevin Eubanks "suttle" flirtations with Serena while she looked fierce in a red dress that just barely covered her backside.

3) David Letterman has an investment in racing so it's not a surprising thing that he brings those people on his show.

Someone obviously decided that journalistic integrity is not that important when it comes to David Letterman. :tape:

I have no problem with David Letterman and I'll watch him tonite BUT what's the point in writing :bs:.

Why are there no youtube videos of Serena, Venus and Lindsay on these late night shows? All I've found are Roddick and Sharapova.

Hmm, I wonder if this will be moved into Serena's or Venus's forum :ras:

ROFL I'm rushing.

Letterman must be in love with Vee, because he never had Ree last year even though they both won dubs.

I'm looking forward to it. Hope I don't fall asleep.

They're already in America? :sad: I know the weather was sucky today in London but still. To leave so soon :(

I wonder if they went back via Gatwick or Heathrow? I was at Gatwick airport today, I'd be gutted if they ended up being there and I didn't know :(

Hopefully someone uploads this ;)

"you have to have rolemodels for grunting" and "i play in heels" were the funniest things she said. loved the interview, but not that dress.

i also liked the part where she was talking about her opponents and how she gets angry when her opponent hits a winner^^ that's so expected from her "you hit a winner? you wanna hit a winner against ME!??!" :lol:

She was probably nervous. A lot of people make grammar mistakes when they are nervous and don't normally speak that way. David Letterman is a big deal. :shrug: Jealous much?
