Be like Monica

World No. 1 Serena Williams said she ''totally wanted to be like Monica'' Seles as a child.

''I think I started grunting because of Monica,'' Williams said. "I thought she was really cool. Venus and I, we both loved Monica. She was one of our favorite players.''

Williams was asked if at first she started grunting on purpose because of Seles.

''I think, initially,'' she said, ``I did. Now I just can't let it go.

"It's like a bad habit.''
