On the heels of the engagement, Williams told People magazine, “it feels good.” She had made the comment during a post-match press conference after securing a first-round victory in the Australian Open.
“I really haven’t thought about it too much, because I wasn’t even really gonna think about it until after the tournament,” she said about the wedding.
“So, I just keep saying, ‘February, I’ll start looking at the bigger picture of my life.’ But right now I’m just so focused that this is all I can think about.”
