Serena Williams working out hard

Serena Williams is 'serious' about looking good at this year's US Open.

Venus Williams and sister Serena are preparing to battle for a title at the annual US Open tennis tournament. With the event beginning August 29, Serena admits that she had to work extra hard to get in contender shape.

"I've been working out a lot since the summer," Serena explained to Hamptons Magazine. "I had to get serious about my fitness because I have taken so much time off, I almost forgot how to play."

Besides undergoing rigorous athletic training, Venus and Serena have spent much of their time on beautification efforts this summer. Venus has put a lot of energy into finding the perfect outfits for on and off court. Her sensational style will be a bit more streamlined this time round, with colour leading the way.

"The US Open this year is all about the little black dress, and I always put zippers in my dresses, so there will be a zipper down the back," Venus explained. "Because I don't ever wear black in the daytime, it will be opposing colours. Last year there were three different styles; this year it will be simple because it is just one, but in different colours."

The US Open is being held in New York from August 29 to September 11.
