Serena Williams is on the cover of the April 2015 issue of Vogue. The feature inside focuses on the 33-year-old’s longevity in the sport and her friendship with Caroline Wozniacki. I suggest you to read the whole article, but my favorite quote is the one when Caro describes the spark of their bonding, after Caro was classlessly dumped by her fiancé.
She wasn’t pitying me, like a lot of people were. I mean, it’s not like anyone died. I was in shock, but she was really helpful because she had been through it before. She didn’t sugarcoat it, and she didn’t look down on me. She was really there for me when I needed her the most, and that’s why I think our friendship is so strong now.
And Serena praised how Caro handled the situation and I have to say that I also admire the Dane for her composure and strength of character:
I was impressed with how strong she was.
Even though she’s intimidating on the court, Serena’s private personality is not as dominating:
On the court, I am fierce! I am mean and I am tough. I am completely opposite off the court. My confidence just isn’t the same. I wish I was more like I am on the court. Nobody would know that I am constantly crying or complaining.
And on the question of starting a family, Vogue writes that Williams simply shrugs, saying “I guess,” sounding unconvinced. “I’m not even looking for it,” the tennis star added. Her post-tennis career plans include the expansion in the fashion department, i.e. spreading beyond her current clothing line on the Home Shopping Network, as well as philanthropic activities.
