Williams enjoys the camaraderie and teamwork of the WTT.

“Being on a team, the crowd support, knowing every game counts,” she said. “All those things are amazing.”

The Kastles have won 30 straight matches, winning the title last season. Williams said she’s eager to keep that run going this weekend.

Williams lost in the second round of the U.S. Open last month to Angelique Kerber, 6-2, 5-7, 7-5. She acknowledged then losing matches like that was not fun for her. In the wake of such tennis champions as Andy Roddick and Kim Clijsters retiring following the year’s final major, could Williams make a similar decision?

Not now, she said, when she’s enjoying her time playing the circuit.

“I still want to be out there, competing well,” Williams said. “I feel good and I feel I’ve had some good results, so that’s my plan.”
