PALM BEACH GARDENS, FL -- Palm Beach Gardens resident and tennis phenom Serena Williams has her eyes set on the future and it includes, she says - an acting career.
First thing's first, though. Serena tells Sky News she still has plenty of tennis left in her. She says she intends to play in the 2012 Olympics in London, England.
"I would love to win the gold medal in the London Olympics," she said. "Any type of medal would be great, but I've never won an Olympic gold, so that's my long-term goal."
Well, one of them.
Serena admitted after tennis she'd like to continue her career in acting. She appeared briefly on the hit NBC show E.R. back in 2005, when she played a character who died.
"I really enjoy acting," she said. "I like being in front of the camera. I think I should be an action star. I always wanted to die in acting and then I died (in E.R.) and I was miserable. I was like, 'I don't wanna die anymore,' so my dying in acting career is over. Now I'm moving on to more action roles. I can do a real mean chop and a kick and I can jump high and run fast and cartwheel."
It's hard to doubt Serena's determination. She currently holds 21 Grand Slam tennis titles.
