The Girl Who Will Do Two Interviews in Seven Days

The Girl Who Will Do Two Interviews in Seven Days

CNN interviewed Serena Williams when she was 9. Here’s what she said:

“He looked at me and said I should be there. I didn’t even cry. I was told by him, I was going to be there, and I was like, ‘He’s not going to say that I have to do it, he’s going to say I’ll see how far I can push myself, and that’s fine. I’m going to be there.’”

“I grew up watching my mother coach my sisters at the same time. It was my mom, my oldest sister, and my youngest sister, and then my youngest sister, and then my oldest sister, and then my youngest sister. There’s like four of us.
