Q. Sisters get annoyed with each other and so do doubles partners, but I don't think I've ever seen you and Venus disagree with each other on court. Do you ever recall disagreeing?
SERENA WILLIAMS: We try to be very professional out there. We disagree on‑court then maybe other people would be more excited. In general I can't ask for a better partner in doubles ever, so I don't see anything I should be upset about or disappointed with.



Q. Who's in charge there?
SERENA WILLIAMS: Venus is the leader. She's definitely the leader. I think she was the leader because when we first started she was older and obviously so much better than I was. She always took the lead position. So she's definitely the leader, but we are both such A‑players and such A‑type personalities that we both can be leaders if one of us is down. I can easily take over that position, and I welcome it. So it's great. It's the best chemistry.

If you watch their matches, it is very obvious Venus is the leader. And Serena answers correctly - Venus is the older sibling and it shows.

Yep she is, since they were kids and they haven't changed, Venus still always serves first and plays on Ad-side

Of course she is. You ain't gonna diss your older sibling like that. :lol:

Serena follows, but knows when to pick it up.

What is Serena trying to say here:

I think Serena is perfectly happy to let Venus be alpha. You can tell that she enjoys the fact that she is the baby sister.
