Serena Slam, Novak Slam?
Q: It’s a few years since you did the Serena Slam. Novak is now going for the Novak slam…in a couple of weeks slam. I wonder what you were feeling like when you were going in to the last one to complete the Serena slam. Were you nervous or did you feel that you were on such a roll that you though nobody would beat you?
Serena Williams: Well, I just felt so confident and I thought nobody would beat me. I was heading to Australia but it was on hard court and that’s a good surface for me but I think I had a tough tournament and my first match I almost lost but I just kept fighting.
Q: And what type of achievement would it be considering the strength of the men’s game if Novak was to do it?
Serena Williams: It would be unbelievable. I don’t even think Roger did it. If Novak does it then he can join my club and we can be best friend.

On the windy conditions:
…a bit strange but I like that challenge and when the wind does in the middle of the point and I said “Whoa – who is in control here.”
On her comeback:
I wasn’t ready but I needed to get points for the Olympics I probably would have come out before Wimbledon or after…… but I didn’t have choice.
I do know how...
