Face To Face with Venus Williams!

Her presence on the tennis court is formidable.  And there are many reasons why!  Her graceful 6-foot-2 frame, her athletic all-court reach and of course, that fierce 100+ mph serve.  I'm sure you've guessed by now: Venus Williams.

Currently, she's on the injured list, unable to play competitively.  Her favorite surfaces of clay and grass are the next grand slam tournament arenas.  Will the French Open and Wimbeldon see the likes of Venus there and in top form?

In my next Face to Face with Fredricka interview to air Saturday May 7 and Sunday May 8, Venus reveals it feels good to be playing again on her favorite West Palm Beach practice courts.  But she's not yet 100% physically fit.  The fierce competitor that she is, she tells me, she wants to be at the top of her game for her comeback tournament.

Back in January she had to withdraw from the Australian Open because of a painful torn muscle.  Face to face, Venus talks candidly about her injury, her recovery, her dreams on and off the court, and she delightfully answers some of your questions!  Questions about her favorite foods, dating and retirement.

Don't miss Face to Face with Fredricka and Venus Williams.  Saturday & Sunday, May 7/8.
