Serena Williams was all smiles again after another strong win yesterday over Ana Ivanovic. When asked about her motivation of passing sister Venus and Kim Clijsters in overall titles, Serena joked that she has no more room in her house for tennis trophies.
“I don’t have any more space,” Serena said. “I have a new house in L.A. I created a karaoke room, so I can’t put trophies in there. The other area, the gentleman’s lounge, is kinda packed with vintage things I got at a flea market, which is really cool. In Florida, forget it. Venus and I, there’s just no more space. I would love to keep winning them. But we’re like, Oh, what are we going to do with this one?”
Serena has a karaoke room? Serena has a gentleman’s lounge?
“We sing our hearts out,” she said of her karaoke room. “We’ve sung till 8:00 in the morning. I was like, Oh, my God, the sun’s coming out. I look out and see the sun. We keep singing and singing and singing and singing. It’s magical.
“I’m big into the ’80s and ’90s. Sometimes I’ll start raping some of the latest songs. Just depends what’s out. My favorite thing to karaoke is definitely Rihanna. She is my favorite artist to karaoke.”
Right now everything is pointing to another Serena Williams US Open so she’ll need to clear some space. Still, the 29-year-old said she can play better.
“I think my movement has been pretty good, but other than that, I can improve a lot of the different things,” she said.
Serena plays Russian 20-year-old Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova tomorrow in the quarterfinals.
