In a press conference, Serena Williams spoke about her relationship with Andy Murray. The American player and the Brit paired up in mixed doubles in Wimbledon. Serena said: "I always ask about his girls. I think his youngest daughter is almost the same age as my daughter, just a month apart.
That's pretty cool. I feel like I always play doubles, and the doubles really are able to help my singles game. That's super, super important for me. Andy and I both love the competition. I know we both want to do well. We're not here just for show.
We want to play well. We both have been champions at Wimbledon. It's like we want to continue to do that. I always play the forehand side. If you want to play with me, I play a forehand. It's just the only rule I have."
Serena also spoke about the concept of competition: "Getting to the top is often fun. You have nothing to lose, especially if you've never been there. It's like a great climb. Sustaining that for years and years takes a lot of work, a ton of work.
You don't want to fall because you know what it's like to be at the top, you know how it feels. At least I do, I know how it feels, how you want to stay there, how you want to get back there. That's how I would describe it."
