Serena Williams visited the White House this week as a guest of President Obama and she met the entire family including First Lady Michelle, daughters Sasha + Malia, and pooch Bo.
She discussed the visit before her WTT match saying,
How exciting for ReRe! She sure looks good for the visit as well.
It was amazing, I love President Obama; he has such an unbelievable presence, and he seems to be so normal -- and he noticed my shoes. I think that was the highlight of the whole day, was he liked my shoes.
He asked me, 'Should I be wearing high heels?' So I thought that was kind of funny because he may have been right. Because it is a job hazard for me, but I insist on wearing them.
I didn't know [Michelle] had such an amazing personality. She had me cracking up and laughing. I knew she was a great person, but now I really understand how important this first family is to the United States. And the kids were just so cute and sweet, and the dog was nice.
But is it me or does she always seem to shrink all in her presence?
