Serena Williams still loves playing tennis, although her passion for fashion is undeniable.
"I'm an unbelievable designer. I don't know how I know and just do these things," she said Tuesday. "I just start sketching and then I just know the colors and I always know the forecast. I know green and purple are going to be hot. I was born to be a designer. I worked hard to be a tennis player, I don't work hard to be a designer."
Williams has created an on-court stir over the years with her skintight outfits, including a leather-looking "catsuit" she wore as a 17-year-old at the U.S. Open. She is currently designing outfits that she will wear next year.
She has her own line of designer clothing called Aneres, her first name spelled backward, which she plans to sell in boutiques in Miami and Los Angeles.
"I love tennis more than designing because it's actually easier and I don't get nearly as nervous. I'm so nervous when I'm designing," she said.
And she hasn't forgotten about acting.
"I've had a lot of different offers, interesting offers from TV shows," she said. "If I wasn't playing tennis, I would have something to do every day, but unfortunately, I don't have time for it right now."
