Williams Aussie interview a tense affair

“I’m in your hands, Serena. I’m totally in your hands,” Australian Channel 10 interviewer Lisa Wilkinson said during an interview three days after the US Open final.

When you exchange cooperation for access, you’re definitely at the interviewee’s mercy.


After a question about smashing her racquet, Williams looked over to an associate, who stepped in with, “That’s four questions now about the U.S. Open …”

Williams had reportedly cancelled many interviews. But she did honor this one, which the program had spent months nailing down before the drama, to talk about a breast cancer initiative back in Australia.
