Thanks Tennischick :)
I saw the pictures before but didn't read the article, so I am glad that you created this thread...

Here's a part from Venus that I particurlary enjoyed reading

"... Before a match, you see a lot of players talking and strategizing with their coaches. I walk out of the locker room and go out there alone. I get to think for myself.Ē However, this insular world Venus has created with her family has actually caused animosity with the other players. ďI canít exactly say Iím friends with the other girls,Ē she divulges. ďIím friendly, but I donít have their phone numbers. All of the girls are nice, but everybody has a little something to say.Ē
Nor does she take herself seriously as a tennis star. ďMaybe I donít have a normal job or existence, but Iím a regular person,Ē she declares. ďItís important for me and Serena to be normal, and not to think of ourselves as special people. If I expect to be treated differently then Iím going to need a major reality check in the future. That happens to many stars. Iíve seen tennis players who get a little crazy and think that they are all that, which they arenít. Itís nice to get those extraspecial privileges, but I donít expect them. Iím not buying Lamborghinis and Ferraris. Some people get caught up with that.Ē

Venus really has her head together......... Always a pleasure reading her interviews! Best Wishes Venus
