In an interview Venus Williams commented on how it feels to be the auntie of her sister Serena's daughter Olympia. "It’s a lot of fun because she’s so cute. Also, I have the easy job. Being the mom is the toughest job and being the aunt is the fun job.
So I feel that I’m getting away with all the perks without the work", said Venus, who also spoke about the keys of her longevity: "Honestly, I get lots of sleep. That is very important. And I eat lots of good food, which can be a challenge on the road.
I try to make conscious decisions whatever I can. Airport food is getting better, but it is not the best. I use supplementations like vitamins and minerals, I try to keep my immune system healthy, I try not to eat a lot of processed foods—I eat whole foods like vegetables and fruits.
I try to avoid foods in packages. I don’t really like grains. So if I’m not on the court, I don’t eat them. But when I have to be at tournaments, I eat grains like rice and I also eat sweet potatoes. At home, I love Caesar salad.
I have at least two salads a day. I actually eat my main meal first and salad second. It’s a staple for me." On how she deals with cold and flu, Venus added: "Clorox really is very connected to what I do. My job is to be healthy and strong.
So if I get sick, I’m pretty much out of work. I’m always traveling with my Clorox Disinfecting Wipes in my tennis bag, carry on, even in my dog bag. So that way, I can wipe down all the surfaces. Even places you don’t even think about, like the phone next to your bed in a hotel or areas where you don’t think, you could catch a virus."
