Venus Williams is one of the world’s top tennis players and tends to have everything in between the lines under control, but when it comes to her sister, Serena, and her baby that’s on the way, V is a little nervous. How will she handle being an Auntie? “I don’t know yet, that’s the problem … I don’t know how well I’m going to do, because I don’t know what to do,” Venus said. “I think you just have to be ready, aware and alert.
