Tennis superstars, Venus, 31, and Serena, 29, Williams traded in their one-of-a-kind, attention grabbing tennis getups for designer gowns as they cover the pages of Hamptons magazine.Â In the latest issue, the pair was photographed and also shared the responsibility of interviewing one another.Â The Williams Sisters open up to each other about co-parenting their dog, Jerry or Harold, depending who you ask, their favorite US Open moments, their successful side hustles in fashion & interior design, giving back to the community, and of course, living it up in the Hamptons.
The carefree interview reveals a side of each sister that is not revealed often enough.Â While Serena has developed more of a public persona over the years due to close friendships with Lala Anthony, Kim Kardashian, and Kelly Rowland, the media continues to criticize both Venus and Serena for pursuing interests away from the tennis court.Â However, it’s apparent that their love affair with tennis is still going strong after all of these years, especially considering the setbacks both have experienced during the past year. With a long bucket list of achievements to complete, hoisting the US Open trophy is still among the top of the list for both.
And I also must point out that both sisters look absolutely lovely in their shots.Â The classic black and white photos, beautiful lighting, pearly white smiles, and soft waves, are the perfect accessories to complement these brown beauties and their rock solid athletic bodies.
Enjoy this excerpt from their interview:
: Iâ€™ve been working out a lot since the summer and was really disappointed at Wimbledon, even though I shouldnâ€™t have been. I felt like I should be really happy, but I am never really happy unless Iâ€™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.
What is your outfit going to look like at the US Open? I know you have been wearing a lot of lace, like you did at Paris last year and at Wimbledon this year. It has influenced my Home Shopping Network collection; we had a tremendous amount of lace. So what is the next trend?
VW: 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
donâ€™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.
