With all of the success that she's enjoyed playing it, you'd think that Serena Williams would be head-over-heels in love with tennis. If nothing else, she's made a shitload of money thanks to her skills on the tennis court over the years and it's helped her finance her love for fashion and her other entrepreneurial endeavors. But it seems that that's not actually the case. In fact, after playing a match at the Brisbane International in Australia recently, Williams admitted that she's never really love tennis—or any sports, for that matter—and that she'd really prefer to be doing other things in her life right now.
"I don't love tennis today," she said, "but I am here. I can't live without it so I am still here. It was never that I have fallen out of love with it—I have actually never liked sports. I have never understood how I became an athlete. I don't like working out. Anything that involves sitting down or shopping, I am excellent at that."
We're not sure if she was just being facetious or if she's actually serious. But when you're as good as she is at tennis, how can you say you don't like sports? Or, better yet, how can you say that you'd prefer "sitting down or shopping" to working out? If she's telling the truth, it sounds like it might be time for her to hang it up.
