Serena Williams Keen on Fashion Career

NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

Serena Williams (search) still loves playing tennis, although her passion for fashion is undeniable.

"I'm an unbelievable designer. I don't know how I know and just do these things," she said Tuesday. "I just start sketching and then I just know the colors and I always know the forecast. I know green and purple are going to be hot. I was born to be a designer. I worked hard to be a tennis player, I don't work hard to be a designer."

Williams has created an on-court stir over the years with her skintight outfits, including a leather-looking "catsuit" she wore as a 17-year-old at the U.S. Open (search). She is now designing outfits that she'll wear next year.

On Nov. 2, she reached a new level of exposure at the London premiere of Pierce Brosnan's new film, "After the Sunset." In an outfit that had a near-topless effect, Williams wore a red gown with strips of sheer fabric that revealed more than just cleavage.

She has her own line of designer clothing called Aneres (search) — her first name spelled backward — that she plans to sell in boutiques in Miami and Los Angeles.

"I love tennis more than designing because it's actually easier and I don't get nearly as nervous. I'm so nervous when I'm designing," she said.

And she hasn't forgotten about acting.

"I've had a lot of different offers, interesting offers from TV shows," she said. "If I wasn't playing tennis, I would have something to do every day, but unfortunately, I don't have time for it right now."
