Hits back at Russian official

Williams says comments by the head of the Russian Tennis Federation referring to her and older sister Venus as “brothers” were bullying, sexist and racist, and that she supported the one-year suspension imposed by the WTA against the official. Shamil Tarpischev was also fined $25,000 for making the comments on Russian television. He also said the sisters were “scary” to look at.

I think the WTA did a great job of taking (the) initiative and taking immediate action to his comments.I thought they were very insensitive and extremely sexist as well as racist at the same time. I thought they were in a way bullying.

Advances to semi-final

Williams recovers from a slow start to beat Flavia Penneta and make it to the semi-finals with a 6-3 6-2 game. Williams has not lost more than three games in any set the tournament.

I felt she was playing really well, I don’t feel I was doing too much wrong (in the first three games). I just said to myself that if she keeps it up then she absolutely deserves the win and I just tried to do a little better. I had a lot of fun today, I really enjoyed it and I’m so happy to have won.

It can be a bit weird. Before it was, ‘Serena has a big butt,’ and that was all. Now there are way more people who feel comfortable with themselves and they’re saying, ‘I’m a woman, and this is what I look like.’ I always say, ‘We’re popular now! We’re finally in style!

O Magazine interview

Interview

Williams talks about playing against her older sister Venus when she was growing up in an interview with O Magazine.

When we were younger, it was difficult for me to play Venus because she’d always beat me so badly. I had to improve just so I could stay in the game. Even now when we practice together, I have to watch out because she’ll just blow me off the court.
