Venus & Serena Williams Cover 'Hamptons' Magazine

Venus and Serena Williams grace the cover of the August 19-25 issue of Hamptons magazine.

Here is what the tennis superstar sisters had to share with the mag:

Serena on how she’s spent her summer: “I’ve been working out a lot since the summer and was really disappointed at Wimbledon, even though I shouldn’t have been. I felt like I should be really happy, but I am never really happy unless I’m on the top. Ever since then, I dedicated myself to working out, practicing more and just trying to do the right things on the court. I had to get serious about my fitness because I have taken so much time off, I almost forgot how to play.”

Venus on U.S. Open style: “The US Open this year is all about the little black dress, and I always put zippers in my dresses, so there will be a zipper down the back. Because I don’t ever wear black in the daytime, it will be opposing colors. Last year there were three different styles; this year it will be simple because it is just one, but in different colors.”

Serena on her foundation: “We have opened two schools in Africa, and we are trying to open a third. We are raising money and sending kids to college here in the United States, because college is so expensive.”

Serena Williams Makes a Racket at U.S. Open

Tennis player Serena Williams talks to the media on Monday (September 14th) about her temper tantrum over the weekend at the U.S. Open in New York City.

The 27-year-old number 2 ranked player in the world captured the women’s doubles title along with her sister, Venus Williams, on Monday (September 14th.) The powerful sister duo defeated the number 1 ranked team, Cara Black and Liezel Huber.

The talk of the Open, however, was Serena Williams exploding at the line judge for a foot fault penalty. Due to her outburst, she was assessed a point penalty, giving the semi-final match to Kim Clijsters (who went on to win the title).

Her outburst included, “If I could, I would take this (expletive) ball and show it down your (expletive) throat.”

Serena issued a statement on Monday, saying, “I want to amend my press statement of yesterday and want to make it clear as possible — I want to sincerely apologize first to the lineswoman, Kim Clijsters, the USTA and mostly tennis fans everywhere for my inappropriate outburst. I’m a woman of great pride, faith and integrity and I admit when I’m wrong.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK of Serena’s apology – REALLY SINCERE OR REALLY BOGUS?
