Serena Williams says sister Venus is 'inspiring'
Serena Williams: 2nd French Open title, decade later, would be 'really intense, really crazy'
By The Associated Press

PARIS (AP) ' Serena Williams says it would be "really intense and really crazy" if she manages to win the French Open a second time ' 10 years after her only title at the clay-court Grand Slam tournament.

Speaking after Friday's draw, which puts her in line for a quarterfinal against Maria Sharapova, Williams says the back problem that bothered her last week in Rome is "a lot better."

The 13-time major champion adds that she feels "really 100 percent" committed to tennis since returning last year following a series of health scares.

She's also thrilled to have her older sister Venus competing in Paris, too, after being diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. Says Serena: "Everything that she's doing is so inspiring for me."
