The champion tennis player pulled out of the World Team Tennis match in Washington last week to rest her back before the Olympic Games, but she insists she’s in better health.
“I feel really good going into these Olympic Games, and wanting to do really well,” Williams said at a news conference with the rest of the U.S. team. “I think it’s exciting to be back so soon. Usually we have to wait 12 months to walk back on Centre Court and kind of feel that moment that we felt (at Wimbledon). So for me, I’m going to be really excited with such a quick turnaround and get back on the grass where I love to play.”
Serena and her sister will be going up against the world, but as a team, is still in question. But Venus is convinced the duo is the secret weapon for the US.
“At the end of the day it’s really up to what our team captains want, and obviously being realistic and seeing who really has the best chance to win because we really want to bring medals home,” Venus said. “So it’s just about the betterment of the team and where we can do the best for USA, so I think that’s what it will boil down to.”
