On tour, this time to promote her book Come to Win, Venus Williams chats about her on court tennis fashion choices with PBS's Tavis Smiley, particularly the controversial little lace number in France.

Watch the whole interview (it's not just about tennis fashion) Friday night, July 16. Check local listings here.
