My goal in a couple of years is to try to build a successful fashion house like Armani or Versace. I want that more than anything.
Think of all the girls who could become top athletes but quit sports because they're afraid of having too many defined muscles and being made fun of or called unattractive.
Everyone in this room knows that Venus is probably one of the greatest people on the tour. She's really great. She's super professional. Complete opposite of me.
A lifetime with Venus Williams will not be enough.
My smile is my favorite part of my body. I think a smile can make your whole body.
My smile is my favorite part of my body. I think a smile can make your whole body. I want women to know that it's ok. That you can be whatever size you are and be beautiful inside and out.
I love going shopping.
I'm definitely not a fearless individual.
I've always made some legendary comebacks since 1998 when it first started. So that's kind of just been my MO for my whole career.
I think you have to love yourself before you fall in love. I'm still learning to love myself.
The success of every woman should be the inspiration to another. We should raise each other up. Make sure you're very courageous: be strong, be extremely kind, and above all be humble.
Luck has nothing to do with it.
Luck has nothing to do with it, because I have spent many, many hours, countless hours, on the court working for my one moment in time, not knowing when it would come.
Hopefully I'll be able to mature one of these days, get serious, and at least have them kids pretty fast.
It's only a crazy dream until you do it.
You have to believe in yourself when no one else does.
I was just tired of losing... Life was passing me by.
When I was younger, I was always obsessed with nails.
I'm Serena Williams on the court, but away I have so many different names. I call myself Butterfly.
How many people yell at linespeople? I see it happening all the time. I don't know how many times I have seen that happen.
It's always good to get a smaller tournament under your belt so that by the time you get to the Slams, you have a lot of experience.
I definitely have found a balance. I've had so many offers in the past to do different movies or different things and I always choose tournaments over it.
There's one thing I'm really good at, and that's hitting the ball over a net, in a box. I'm excellent.
I'm so frugal, you wouldn't believe it.
Someone like Billie Jean King is completely my idol.
All my life I'd woken up to tennis, tennis, tennis. Even if I don't go to practise, I'm thinking about it all day.
You can be whatever size you are, and you can be beautiful both inside and out. We're always told what's beautiful and what's not, and that's not right.
The knee just isn't 100 percent. It's hard to be out there when you know that you can't play at your best and could potentially make it worse.
I'm definitely not at my best. Honestly, I'm under 50 percent. But I've won stuff under 50 percent before.
I am here to play women's tennis. I'm a lady. Predominantly, most of the time I always like to play ladies.
What's going to make me happy is going on the court and holding up trophies, singles and doubles.
I'm thankful to my family, friends, and fans for all of their support.
I always say that when I'm playing well, no one can beat me. I'm not just saying that to sound full of myself or anything, but it's true.
I've always considered myself the best and the top. I never considered that I was out of it.
I've always enjoyed acting. When we were younger, my sisters and I would put on plays for our parents.
Tennis is my job, but it's not my life.
I'm a perfectionist. I'm pretty much insatiable. I feel there's so many things I can improve on.
I wanted to get really fit. I wanted to lose some weight. So I've been doing Pilates and yoga, trying to lean out my body so I won't be bulky.
Family's first, and that's what matters most. We realize that our love goes deeper than the tennis game.
I'm a real extrovert, but when I'm round someone new, I'm super shy.
I feel like I'm really young and I'm only thinking about my career and continuing playing.
To this day, I don't love my arms. People want more fit arms, but my arms are too fit. But I'm not complaining. They pay my bills.
I think a smile can make your whole body. Models, they look fabulous, but they don't smile, and they look so mad.
No one likes getting their nails done more than I do.
I've had to learn to fight all my life -- got to learn to keep smiling. If you smile things will work out.
I'm really exciting. I smile a lot, I win a lot, and I'm really sexy.
I decided I can't pay a person to rewind time, so I may as well get over it.
I've developed a karaoke habit. I've become a crooner.
Having a pulmonary embolism is definitely easier than heart break.
Tennis just a game, family is forever.
Everyone's dream can come true if you just stick to it and work hard.
Since I don't look like every other girl, it takes a while to be okay with that. To be different. But different is good.
I am not a robot. I have a heart and I bleed.
I've always been a fighter and I've always fought through things my whole life.
We're going in really fresh. We're going to have fresh legs and bodies, we're going to be able to stay the distance, and that's our goal.
If you can keep playing tennis when somebody is shooting a gun down the street, that's concentration.
I'm not used to crying. It's a little difficult. All my life I've had to fight. It's just another fight I'm going to have to learn how to win, that's all. I'm just going to have to keep smiling.
Venus told me the other day that champions don't get nervous in tight situations. That really helped me a lot. I decided I shouldn't get nervous and just do the best I can.
If anything, you know, I think losing makes me even more motivated.
I don't know if I've had my share of drama, but I've definitely had my share of hard times.
I want to be a giving woman and just a nice person in general.
Hopefully, we can build a rivalry and we'll be able to do this a lot. Make a legacy, then retire champions.
