Williams' Dolphins

Serena and Venus Williams decided to get themselves some new pets - the choice fell on dolphins, the Miami Dolphins. The deal isn't done yet, but it is believed, that next week, they will be announced as limited ownership partners.

"Well, you know, Serena, we could use this as an excuse, why we weren't totally focused on tennis this summer..."

"There have been talks, [preliminary] talks and hopefully it will work out. I mean, that would be a great opportunity for both of us. We'll see what happens. You never know. We'll see.''
- Serena said during the tournament in Toronto.

On Monday, in a meeting with Miami Herald editors and reporters, Dolphins majority owner Stephen Ross said three limited partners would be announced next Tuesday and indicated at least one would be African-American. Ross has said he wants the ownership group to reflect South Florida's ethnic diversity and glamour. This summer, Ross has brought in longtime Miami residents Emilio and Gloria Estefan and singer Marc Anthony, music stars with Hispanic backgrounds, as limited partners.
