Dear Diary,

On Tuesday, Serena and we will play any other for a 27th time given 1998. You’d consider a universe would be over it by now, nonetheless sadly not. The hype appurtenance has been incited adult to 11.

I get that Serena is gunning for a Grand Slam and we am station in her way, nonetheless we are both veteran tennis players personification in a same tournament. As prolonged as we didn’t remove to anyone else, we were going to finish adult personification any other (though we both would have elite to accommodate in a final). That’s how these tournaments work and have always worked. It doesn’t confuse us much, as we have both pronounced over and over again. But that doesn’t seem to relieve a glare.

What’s many irritating are a questions — mostly a same questions — that we get any time this happens. Sometimes we wish to tell a reporters to use my quotes from a final time and only change a name of a tournament.

Yes, we are some-more calm on a justice than we would be opposite anyone else nonetheless we are both out there doing what we adore — playing tennis. How can we get insane or dissapoint with any other for that?

Us personification any other is indeed harder on a rest of a family. Mom isn’t going watch, as usual. But she taught us good — family is some-more critical than winning and losing. When a careers are over, we’ll still be sisters.

Obviously, a stakes a bigger this time than “just” winning a vital tournament. But we still wish to win (and so does Serena). Sure, we wish her to finish a Grand Slam nonetheless Serena has to acquire it and we both know that. She wouldn’t wish me to give reduction than my best. If we didn’t, we would be intrigue her, myself and a sport. Not to discuss a fans and a tournament. It’s how we were lifted and we have schooled over a years to come to terms with it.

There’s one some-more thing we wish to contend before we have to get to practice. Serena might be a biggest tennis actor ever and a favourite to win this compare nonetheless I’m personification some flattering good tennis myself. So Serena improved move it tonight. Big sister ain’t finished yet.

This diary is apparently a work of fiction
