I went out to Arthur Ashe Kids’ Day today at the U.S. Open and ran into Richard Williams, father of Venus and Serena. Here is his comment on how Venus is playing, which ranks as the ZAGSBLOG U.S. Open Quote of the Day.
“Venus is moving and her feets are moving like Michael Jackson when he was dancing. So far I haven’t seen no one’s feets move like Venus since Steffi Graf has left. Venus’ feets are really, really moving big-time, so she could definitely win it all, too.”
