They are just really cool people and it's a great moment for her and for Venus.

It's going to be a big moment for Venus as well becasue she's playing against a player that actually reminds me of Venus, the way she, kind of her body and everything.

So I know that they both want to win obviously and go to the next round and I think that would be really important for both of them.

It will be a good match.

I think I might, might watch.

I always get nervous watching Venus, so..." STORY: Serena Williams on Saturday (June 29) said she might watch her sister Venus play the new teen star of tennis, Cori 'Coco' Gauff at Wimbledon in the tournament's first round, but she gets nervous watching her sister, she added.
