Such confidence at 17 years old. Ericcson 1997.

(Question is about Martina)<br />Q. Venus, can you imagine a match from tomorrow will be a match that you'll see over and over in the next couple of years, the two of you fighting to be the best players in the world?

VENUS WILLIAMS: Oh, no I think it will be my sister and I fighting to be the two best players in the world. I don't see that at all.

<br />Q. Since she's No. 1, are you interested to see how you measure against her? Will you measure yourself and your progress?

VENUS WILLIAMS: I measure myself against myself. I would never measure myself against someone else. I feel that I'm the best, okay? That's just how I feel. Even if it wasn't true, that I can feel that way, it makes you play better, makes you have more pride about what you're doing, saying, "I'm the best player out here, why am I losing, pull it together." What was the question you asked?

<br />Q. You answered it well.

VENUS WILLIAMS: I wanted to say something else, but I forgot the question.

Those days she was fearless and assertive, now she is quiet and invincible.

Hingis after beating Venus-Ericcson 1997.

(Press conference)<br />MARTINA HINGIS: I have a nice present for you. There's a cute thing I found on the court. One of Venus' pearls.

They were both so young and fiesty then.
