Serena wants 'everything'

2011-06-13 16:05

Eastbourne - Serena Williams says nearly a year away from tennis hasn't diminished her competitive spirit.

The 13-time Grand Slam champion returns to action on Tuesday at the Eastbourne International after recovering from an injured tendon in her foot, which led to a blood clot on her lung.

Williams says doctors warned her that the blood clot could have ended her career and that prospect taught the 29-year-old about "not taking things for granted."

But she says that her attitude "hasn't changed" and that she still has "that insatiable, innate thing inside of me that I want everything. I just want to win."

Williams opens against Tsvetana Pironkova of Bulgaria as she warms up for the defense of her Wimbledon title.

      No, papaRoach, it is far harder to make a comeback than to never have been there and reach the top. Serena is very good and very imposing, but I doubt it that the real will to become the best again is still there. She might say so - did they sexpect her to say anything else? - but that does not mean that she means it with all her body and soul.
