VENUS ON SERENA "When I’m playing on the court with her, I think I’m playing, like, the best competitor in the game. I don’t think I’m chump change either, you know. I can compete against any odds. No matter what, I get out there and I compete." "She's the toughest player I've ever played in my life, and the best person I know"
VENUS "I felt like I had to say something that was very humanizing because these people on the board, they have mothers, they have daughters, they have sisters. They have to remember that these women who are not getting equal prize money are mothers and daughters and sisters. You have to look at it that way, or else you might not be able to see through it." "When you lose, you're more motivated. When you win, you fail to see your mistakes and probably no one can tell you anything" "If you're not a competitor, you've just got to go home"
SERENA ON VENUS 'She’s always wanted to be a strong woman and set an example. With her campaigning [for equal pay], she laid out an example for her country to stand up and show that you can do more than just be a tennis player.’ “I am really proud of Venus. She is a total inspiration. I am really happy for her and to be in the final together is a dream for us. She is my toughest opponent, no-one has ever beaten me as much as Venus. I feel no matter what that we have both won after all we have been through" "We talk every day and we text every day, not about tennis always - our relationship isn't based around tennis so it's just been really great. I miss her a lot and I look forward to her coming back. All my energy is towards making her want to be great and making her want to win. It's just a totally different feeling." SERENA "That’s what makes me great. I always play everyone at their greatest, so I have to be greater.” “I have singles, doubles, actually everything there is to win in tennis. Where do I go from here?” Sources: #espn #bustle #nike #wta #elle #timemagazine #telegraph #vogue #dujourmagazine
