WASHINGTON: Before heading off to St. Louis to throw the first pitch at the Major League Baseball All-Star game, President Barack Obama welcomed

Wimbledon champion Serena Williams to the White House on Tuesday.
``It was amazing,'' Williams said. ``I love President Obama; he has such an unbelievable presence, and he seems to be so normal and he noticed my shoes. I think that was the highlight of the whole day, was he liked my shoes.''

Williams said she was wearing 5-inch (13-centimeter) heels for the presidential visit.

``He asked me, 'Should I be wearing high heels?' So I thought that was kind of funny because he may have been right,'' Williams said. ``Because it is a job hazard for me, but I insist on wearing them.''

Williams got to meet Michelle Obama and the rest of the first family.

``I didn't know she had such an amazing personality,'' Williams said. ``She had me cracking up and laughing. I knew she was a great person, but now I really understand how important this first family is to the United States. And the kids were just so cute and sweet, and the dog was nice.''
