10:00 am
then venus won the second set. and then it was down to the third set and serena ended up winning it and how -- can you imagine, though, looking across the net and seeing the person who you grew up playing tennis with and each one is competitive. i wonder what they're saying. but serena did talk about what that match was like afterwards. take a look. >> it's a really great moment. she's the toughest player i've ever played in my life and the best person i know so it's -- [ cheers and applause ] it's going against your best friend and at the same time going against the greatest competitor for me in women's tennis so it was really difficult today. >> so when you look at them when they are little, there was some b-roll on one of the shows. >> on espn. >> watching venus and serena when they're playing. you're watching them hit with their dad and how they played
10:01 am
since they were little. this is what venus said when she was asked about tennis when she was a little girl. >> i like tennis a lot and i think i want to play all the time. >> you see them as little kids and you can't imagine. >> don't you think that's true? we are the same human being all through our life but what you love to do when you're a little kid and the time flies, i call it follow the goose bumps. follow your goose bumps. it leads to the sweet spot where you define your own success. if you can -- my dad used to say if you find what you love to do and figure out a way to get paid for it. they are getting paid extremely well following their goose bumps. i did that and i think you ultimately did it as well, too. >> it takes a minute to realize. >> not everyone knows. >> if i was looking across the net and i saw hala and i knew it was a huge thing and it's not like a sister thing, it's like the world is watching you. i can't -- i would feel terrible every time she missed a shot.
10:02 am
i think i would be like "oh, my god, you'll do better next time." i think that would be in my head. >> i don't know if we can put ourselves in their place competing at that level. by my sister mechy who i always adore, we worked together. she was one of my backup singers along with denice carly for years and years and years an years so we were on the same team so i only know that. >> but did you ever compete in singer? >> no, because she was so much a better singer than i ever was but she didn't have the inner constitution for this business. >>ee. >> this business almost ate away at her gut and i thrived on it because we're different people but we were able to find a way for us both to do what we loved to do but she was in a militia ore protected environment that way. and hala -- you're a good tennis player, right? >> no, both hala and i like to
10:03 am
play but we're not great at it. but i'm always rooting for her to do well so i think it would be hard to go toe to toe with her on anything. >> do you think serena is going to get? >> i think she's going to get it. >> who does she play in the semifinals, anybody no? >> i don't know. >> this is nbc news! they're all going, um -- >> no one has google, no one knows. who? >> vinchi. >> i hope you're right, we just said it out loud. a lot of people were in attendance at this match. is that kim kardashian? she was there. oprah and gayle were there. gayle always gets cut out of the shot. >> poor gail. >> donald trump was there. >> and gladys knight was back. gladys loves tennis. >> she loves her tennis. so there's a milestone happening, right, with the queen? >> yes, the queen, queen elizabeth.
