Serena Williams on playing against her sister: "I'm really, really ruthless out on the court, but so is Venus"

Coming up this evening at 9 p.m., Piers Morgan laces up his tennis shoes, and volleys with women's great Serena Williams.

A 13-time Grand Slam Singles champion, Serena has also teamed with her sister Venus Williams to win 12 Grand Slam Doubles titles. And though the Williams sisters have met head-to-head 23 times professionally, Serena prefers to see her older sibling on the same side of the net:

"I hate playing against her. Sometimes we practice against her and she's amazing to practice against. But then I get competitive a little bit," reveals the 30-year-old. "Like the other day we were practicing together, and I was serving against her, and she was hitting winners, and I was so mad."

Pressured by the host to predict the winner in a life or limb battle, Serena reluctantly declares victory:

"I can't say I would lose," she tells Morgan. "I'm really, really ruthless out on the court, but so is Venus. So, I don't know. I can't sit here and say she would win. So I would say I would win. But I'm sure if she were sitting here she would say she would win."

Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, then tune in this evening at 9 p.m., as the most recent player to hold all four Grand Slam singles titles simultaneously, shows Morgan what it means to be "properly in love" on the tennis court.

    anyone out there hear Serena show Piers her calming/sleeping/relaxation product, called "Sweet Cheeks" ?
    I'd love to know where to find them so I can try them myself...I googled Sweet Cheeks and the only response is a winery in Oregon!
    Feel free to email me about this relaxation product Serena and Piers chatted about- Thanks!

      I knew the Tea party would soon come here! Do you know that Federer cursed out an umpire during the 2009 USO FINAL and was fined? Just because she's black and a woman every mistake she makes is elevated more than others in the STFU

    Of course Serena would win in a life-or-limb battle. Everyone knows Venus is the nuturing older sister.

    after spending an hour trying to get to the "EMAIL" and signing up. This is a joke. CNN has become an international pile of news. What would Ted Turner think. I was trying to comment on a "Pierce" segment which was a joke and had to go through "what I call a top secret clearance" just to comment. Yes, I am a veteran. This bull"""" is a joke. Please post this but I will not be back nor watch CNN anymore.
