Questions for Williams sisters after French flop

continued from page 1

“I definitely grew up watching them. I’ve idolized both of them forever. I mean, they were the first players I watched on TV and said, `I want to be there, one day, playing the tournaments that they’re playing,’” said Melanie Oudin, a 20-year-old from Marietta, Ga., who reached the 2009 U.S. Open quarterfinals.

“I just can’t see them _ especially Serena _ retiring. Serena’s been the best of the best for so long,” Oudin continued. “Even when she’s out for a while, she comes back, and she can still play amazing tennis and beat everyone.”

The world will be watching when Wimbledon begins next month to find out if that’s still the case.
