Celebrity Interview: Venus WilliamsSummer Olympics, Wimbledon and now the US Open…this summer’s heart-stopping tennis matches have been nothing short of spectacular. Inspired to work on your swing? Whether or not you’re ready to hit center court, you can now look the part with the just launched EleVen by Venus Williams tennis line, shipping internationally soon, which the gold-medalist herself wore throughout this summer’s games and will be showcasing for the first time ever next week at New York Fashion Week. Go for the Gold with the Limited Edition Olympic Collection, or hit the baseline in the classic tennis line collection in her signature style, with rose-gold charms and messages in Venus’s handwriting encouraging you to “beat ‘em.” Suddenly you’ve got a medal-worthy wardrobe and a super-star coach.  Your odds are looking up. Love.

We’ve scored an EXCLUSIVE DSTS INTERVIEW with the triple gold medalist and five-time Wimbledon champion, VENUS WILLIAMS, as she serves up sports, fashion, passion, packing and winning the gold! Need a little more inspiration to get into full swing?  Here’s what she had to say to Dim Sum & Then Some readers…

ON WINNING THE GOLD:
“It’s one gold of many for the US. But, it’s amazing to be a part of that and know that you brought home something for our country. That’s the best feeling of it all, contributing. And competing in the games is exhilarating. The experience has been amazing and I’m still on cloud 9!

ON WINNING WITH SIS SERENA:
“That’s the best! I would pick the Doubles Gold Medal over any Singles at any time because when I stand on the podium with her, it’s like the top of the top, it doesn’t get better than that.”

WHY DID YOU CREATE THIS LINE?
“It’s called EleVen and its really about being your personal best.  I went to school for fashion design, so this is my passion. I think you should be able to express who you are with what you wear and be who you are – even if you are being active – that’s what its about for me.”

I BET YOU ARE A MASTER PACKER.
“I am a master packer! I have this crazy plan to just bring a tennis bag one day with a little rolly and travel across Asia for a month with just a little carry-on, so one day!”

Looking forward to painting the town red with you on this side of the pond, Venus!
