Venus Williams now NY Times best-selling author

ESPN - Venus Williams thinks she's too young to have a bucket list.

"Shouldn't I really be older to have that?" said the 30-year-old Williams, who has won 21 Grand Slam titles and three Olympic gold medals. "I've been living a dream on the court and now I'm doing things off the court."

Like writing a New York Times best seller.

Williams tackled her first book, "Come to Win: Business Leaders, Artists, Doctors and Other Visionaries on How Sports Can Help You Top Your Profession," which debuted at No. 5 last week.

"OK, maybe I wasn't ever thinking of writing a New York Times best seller! Being on that list is way beyond my dreams," said Williams, who, along with journalist Kelley E. Carter, conducted the interviews in the 357-page book. "It was really amazing for me to write. I know what you writers go through now. I was so nervous, but it was such a positive experience."

Williams talked to more than 50 business leaders, such as Nike co-founder Phil Knight (running), former President Bill Clinton (rugby), NBA Hall of Famer Magic Johnson (basketball) and even fashion designer Vera Wang (ice skating), about how sports helped them succeed off the field.
