In an interview to PEOPLE, Venus Williams spoke about her feelings when she watches her sister Serena live or on TV. Venus, who will be back on Tour next year, said: “We both get nervous still. Sometimes it’s hard for me to watch her matches.
Sometimes there will be replays of finals she’s played so I know that she’s won and I’m like ‘Okay, I can just watch this match and sit back and relax’ instead of being like ‘Oh my God is she gonna win? I hope she wins!’.
Even as much as she’s won — you’ve got to earn it in those intense matches,” Venus, who recently partnered with Clorox for the fight against cold and flu season, said. “It’s never a give in.
You fight until you shake hands and hopefully you use those wipes so you don’t get sick!” Venus has many activitives off the court and she cares a lot about her health: “One of the reasons I’m teaming up with Clorox is because being sick for me is not an option.
I have to work and my work is very physical and if I can’t be physical then I’m out of work. So hopefully, I am able to prevent a lot of illnesses by disinfecting surfaces especially when I go on airplanes … filled with germs. Airport bathrooms and airplane bathrooms are my least favorite. I don’t trust them,”
