Sometimes you have opportunities and sometimes you take them and you don't, but it's not like you get opportunity after opportunity after opportunity in these sorts of matches. You have to take the ones you have. You know, definitely when I had opportunities in the second set and so many break points disappearing, you feel like, wow, I should be doing more. You have to put it behind you. It's about winning the match you're in. Doesn't matter whether you're playing well or not playing well. It's about figuring out how to win.feedback

They could have really been even more boisterous. I thought the crowd was so fair. And I know that they love Jo, and she gave it her all today. It's a lot of pressure. It's a lot of pressure. I thought she handled it well. I think my experience just helped a lot.feedback

She played an amazing match today, She really played a match that was worth - she deserved to win. But these sort of matches are always so close. The first set I had a break.

I feel like I am a great player. I am a great player. Unfortunately, I had to deal with circumstances that people don't normally have to deal with in this sport. But I can't be discouraged by that, so I'm up for challenges. I have great tennis in me. I just need the opportunity.feedback

Every day we're like, Baby Vee, Baby Isher, Baby Lyn, so we all want the baby to be named after us.feedback

May 29 2017

Is it 20 already? I thought I missed a few, but apparently not. Here we are. You know, what an experience. What can I say? So would I recommend it? For sure, but I think if you're happy playing a lot of tournaments and you can handle that, then it's not a problem. But if you're not, then you have to space it out. I think today the experience helped, for sure. Having the opportunity to play 20 of these tournaments helped me a lot.feedback

The first round is always tricky. You know, she played well. I just tried to stay aggressive until the end. You know, you have to still be aggressive even though the courts are slower here on the clay.feedback

May 29 2017

Definitely, I think spacing out how long, how many tournaments I have played, I believe that's helped me. It's not easy emotionally or mentally or physically to do this job, so I think that helps. I haven't had any other experience.feedback

May 29 2017

All I can speak of are the players that I play against, and they play amazing every time. That's the competition I face. What other players are doing, I have got to be honest, I don't watch so closely. I just try to understand what can I accomplish. And then after that, I go home.feedback

May 29 2017

When I was trailing, I know she had done things to earn it, to be at 4-2, so it was a credit to her. But also, I realized I had to put some balls in the court, so that would be my main focus at that point.feedback

May 22 2017

As I try to plan a schedule, I know I've already played a lot less than most players. And who knows what I'll do next year? You get to a point in life where you don't want to spend four and five weeks on the road. You want to play quality and not quantity.feedback

May 02 2017

It all started right here, Mark Twain. It looks so much smaller!feedback

Mar 30 2017

I feel that his greatest accomplishment was for Serena and I to be whole people and to not be statistics. He just wanted us to not see tennis as the whole thing in our life. At this point I think he never wants us to retire, so it's a joy for him to see us out here.feedback

Mar 21 2017

I am so exited for Serena. She is so prolific on the court, but now I am happy to watch her prepare for her wedding!feedback

Mar 21 2017

We are not sure what is happening with who doing what yet. You know there are a lot of sisters in our family! But I am looking forward to doing whatever Serena asks.feedback

Mar 12 2017

It ain't over til' it's over, and I didn't see no fat lady singing.feedback

Mar 08 2017 - Women

We have to empower each other and empower ourselves and that involves believing in yourself and betting on yourself. You are your best bet. Invest in you physically, emotionally financially. The more powerful a woman is, the better this world grows. Empowerment is even more on the radar with what's been happening this year. I unfortunately had to miss the march, because I was in Australia for the Open, and had to miss the pulse of being in the U.S. at that time – that would have been so great!feedback

Mar 08 2017

I still see my family only all the time! We all encourage each other … When you're young you learn all of these powerful lessons in terms of being raised. And [my parents] still foster those ideals.feedback

Mar 03 2017

There's still a lot of time to do a lot of things on and off the court.feedback

Sjogren's is something that stays around, hangs around in your body and tries to take over but that's not how I see it. I'm running the show.feedback

Mar 03 2017

It's wonderful to see all kinds of people and all kinds of women playing tennis at all ages. So that's been a highlight for us, to see that happen.feedback

Mar 03 2017

I'm planning on playing tennis for a very long time yet. That dream is still going strong. It's definitely challenging, but it's mind over matter for me to be able to live the life I want to live regardless. I personally love a challenge and challenges motivate me. I don't like to go to bed at night knowing that I haven't done my utmost to overcome any challenge that I've faced. Playing tennis, (my sister and I) were definitely very different for tennis at the time and that definitely broke down a lot of barriers.feedback

Jan 28 2017

Serena Williams, that's my little sister. I have been right there with you. Some of them I have lost right there against you. It's been an awesome thing, your win has always been my win.feedback

Jan 28 2017

Congratulations, Serena, on No. 23. I have been right there with you. Some of them I have lost right there against you. Your win has always been my win, you know that. All the times I couldn't be there, wouldn't be there, didn't get there, you were there.feedback

Jan 26 2017

Everyone has their moment in the sun. Maybe mine has gone on a while. I'd like to keep that going. When I'm playing on the court with her, I think I'm playing, like, the best competitor in the game. I don't think I'm chump change either, you know. I can compete against any odds. No matter what.feedback

Jan 26 2017

Everyone has their moment in the sun. Maybe mine has gone on a while but I'd like to keep that going. I got nothing else to do, let's keep it going.feedback

Jan 26 2017

She played so unbelievable and I had to play defence the whole time it felt like. It's an unbelievable thing to watch Serena Williams play tennis, I have to say. I'd love more than anything to see her across the net from me on Saturday.feedback

Jan 26 2017

Honestly, I probably just need to continue playing like I'm playing. I haven't played badly. I lost a set today. I was not happy about it. But my opponent deserved that set. So what else could I do? Try to get the next two. Growing up, all I wanted was to have an opportunity to play these tournaments. But then you get here and then you have an opportunity to inspire other people. It's more than a cherry on top. It's more than I dreamed of.feedback

Jan 24 2017

Should I look across the net and believe the person across the net deserves it more? This mentality is not how champions are made. I'd like to be a champion, in particular this year. The mentality I walk on court with is: 'I deserve this.'.feedback

Jan 24 2017

I have a lot to give, I have a lot to give to the game. I feel like I have a lot of great tennis in me. So anytime you feel that way, you continue. It's just the excitement of having the opportunity to compete at my best level. It's wonderful to start the year out with this appearance.feedback

Jan 24 2017

Oh my gosh I'm so excited. I want to go further. I'm not happy just with this. I'm just so excited that I have another opportunity to play again.feedback

Jan 20 2017

It's good (but) it's never enough. I've tasted it before and it's always a great feeling because it means, hey, I have an opportunity for the quarterfinals. That's what I'm going to go for.feedback

Jan 20 2017

All I can say is it's been a wonderful, wonderful career for me full of positives. That's what I focus on.feedback

Jan 20 2017

I pay attention and address situations that are noteworthy. That's been my past record, clearly.feedback

I have to talk about this every interview. I've played some of the greats.feedback

I'm not coming all the way to Australia for kicks and giggles. I'm here as a competitor.feedback

Jan 16 2017

She played amazing.feedback

Jan 16 2017

Well I know how to play tennis ... You know, I like to think I'm good at this. She hasn't had the years that I've had yet. Se hasn't had the gray hairs that I'm dying, the wrinkles that I'm hiding. You're trying to make me feel old now!feedback

Jan 16 2017

Each player in the draw has an unbelievable ability to play tennis. There are some that have won more championships than others, but it's because we know how to play this game, and it's pretty serious stuff for us.feedback

Aug 11 2016

What can you do except come back and play again?feedback
