Top-ranked Novak Djokovic wards off upset bid
It was the kind of theater fans waited on long lines for outside Louis Armstrong Stadium.
“Sometimes it’s really nice to be on the smaller court where the crowd is closer to the court where you can feel them,” Djokovic said. “When you’re taking a towel, you can feel them so close to you.”
SPIKE‘S GAME: Even the most intimidating player in women’s tennis can be intimidated.
“He’s crazy. He wants to win more than I do,” Williams said about her good friend.
She recalled that Lee will implore: “Hit to me really hard.”
When Williams tells him, “I’m going to break your racket if I do,” he’ll insist, “No, go your hardest.”
“He’s actually really good,” Williams said. “He’s like really, really intense. I’m a little intimidated. ‘Calm down, calm down.’”
“Whenever we’re at dinner, he’s looking for a debate,” Williams said. “You have to join in and pick a side. I always try to pick an opposite side so it can just be a debate. It’s fun, though. I love it.”
Williams might be starring in her own videos soon of the musical variety. She has a karaoke room in her new house in Los Angeles.
“We sing our hearts out,” she said. “We’ve sung till 8 in the morning. I was like, ‘Oh, my God, the sun’s coming out.’ I look out and see the sun. We keep singing and singing and singing and singing. It’s magical.”
Williams loves tunes from the 1980s and ‘90s, but her favorite artist to impersonate is Rihanna.
