  • Quotes

    • Serena Williams: (On beating her sister Venus and winning the Wimbledon title) It feels so amazing, I'm so blessed. I feel like I shouldn't be holding the trophy, like I'm holding Venus's trophy. It's named for Venus and she always wins, so it hasn't settled in I won yet.

    • Serena Williams: (On looking ahead after winning her 11th grand slam title) Now I'm just looking at the next goal. Someone like Billie Jean King is completely my idol. To get to her level and have 12 would be even better. I'm really just playing for me, I can't even put myself in a sentence with the greatest because I think about people like Martina Navratilova and Steffi Graf and Billie Jean King they were such great champions and even to be mentioned with those is a real honour to me.

    • Serena Williams: (On her no.2 ranking) I think Dinara did a great job to get to No. 1. She won Rome and Madrid. I think if you hold three Grand Slam titles maybe you should be No.1, but not on the WTA Tour obviously, so... You know, my motivation is maybe just to win another Grand Slam and stay No.2, I guess. I'd rather definitely be No.2 and hold three Grand Slams in the past year than be No. 1 and not have any.

    • Venus Williams: (On losing out in the Final) I don't think I did too many things wrong. But I would play a good shot and she'd hit a winner off of it or put me in a position where she could hit another winner.
