Serena Williams drew similarities between her and Roger Federer. Speaking to the reporters in New York, the American player said: "I feel like we obviously have a love for the sport. I feel like a lot of players do, too.
I can't really answer for Roger. I can just say that -- I always said I would wake up one day and say, I'm done. That day hasn't come yet for me. I'm still playing pretty good tennis. I do look at Roger, like today, and the guy is incredible.
His game is shockingly amazing. So there is no reason that he shouldn't be out there with his ability, and I feel the same way about mine." On how to be feet grounded, Serena said: "I would be pontificating to a level I wouldn't even know to say I'm a superstar.
Obviously I'm just Serena. I don't try to be anybody else. I don't try to be famous. I don't try to be anything. I think when people meet me and they see me, they are I think almost shocked at how low-key and how average I am."
Asked if she taught tennis to the younger girls in Kenya where she has opened a school, Williams said: "No, I haven't. That's definitely on my list to do. I don't know if I have time to do it with my career still going.
I definitely want to continue that legacy of knowledge and continue that in the future most probably when I'm not playing because the schedule is really rigorous."
