08 February 2005 - Nicolas VOLLAIRE
Serena Williams two-times winner of the tournament is back at the Open Gaz de France after a long year of absence. The youngest of the Williams recovered pretty well by winning the first Grand Slam of the season in Australia. Meet the great favourite of the week.
What did you do since Melbourne ?
I took some holydays in Asia to relax a little. But I didn’t celebrate too much because the season has just started and it’s still a long way to go. I am getting a lot of rest and trying to keep my energy for the matches. I didn’t even go for shopping yet since I am in Paris…

Is there a love story between you and the Open Gaz de France ?
I’ve always liked this city and specially the Open Gaz de France. That was my first win on the WTA Tour and I like it because it’s a cosy tournament. I don’t feel too much pressure here, which is cool. Besides, I take any chance or opportunity to come to Paris.

After an eight month injury, is the real Serena definitely back ?
My knee is nearly at 100%. I don’t have any apprehension at all and I’m excited playing at this level again. My victory at the Australian Open was a great relief especially after such a long absence. It gives me a lot of momentum for the rest of the season and a lot of confidence too.

Do you want to be WTA N°1 again this season ?
My goals are to win Grand Slams and important tournaments. If I do so, I believe the ranking will pretty much come with it…(laughters) The N°1 raking is difficult to reach because you have to stay focused and dedicated during the whole year.

What kind of relations do you have with the French public ?
To be honest, I like Paris so much that I also like its public. Whenever I come here, I always play against French players and the crowd is always going “Allez Amélie!” or “Allez Nathalie”! I am used to it now and it doesn’t bother me. Like I told you, I love French people, I love Paris and I love the language.

(LOL she neglects to mention the Justine match :tape: )
What will you be wearing this week on the court ?
I will wear some flowing fun skirts and a lot of cut outs on my top. You will see a lot a skin ! :hearts: (new outfit for Serena)

I think she was referring to French players only and the tournament at Gaz de France.

Serena usually plays good when she shows skin ;)
Yeah, :lol: like my sister said during the AO against Petrova, she had to get "nekkid" to play better. :lol:

Hey Star, if you want that title in your siggy, you should file an application with the Royal Court, and make it "legal". Click on the link in my signature to be considered. Thanks. ;)

Okay cool. Let SJW or Rokkstar know you changed your name, so they can fix it on the website. ;)

I bet it's that cute skirt she wore in her first round match at the AO.
I will wear some flowing fun skirts and a lot of cut outs on my top.

I just love the way she adds "color" to the WTA in every sense of the word, outfits and all, love them or hate them at least everyone is talking about them!!!

She doesn't seem to be bothered by past experiences but learn from them and look to the future. If the french tennis fans (I will not indict a whole country) want to continue to exhibit crude behavior thats on them as she will continue to demonstrate to them that she will never sink to their level no matter how hostile the enviornment.
A great attitude !!! Go Serena!!

She is always so relaxed and easy-going when expressing herself. I just love that she is well-spoken and appreciates the host city she is in, no matter where it is. SERENA!! :kiss:

shes desperate for attention

a) because she is not hot
b) she has to get half naked to get attention

she should learn from sexy people with CLASS like anna, maria or LENA D
