London, July 7 (ANI): Grand Slam champion Venus Williams has revealed that she has to binge on food all the time during a tournament.

The 28-year-old tennis sensation slipped away with the title beating sister Serena 7-5, 6-4.

I have to eat all the time during a tournament, The Sun quoted her as saying.

In the morning I eat chicken, rice and pasta for breakfast.

For your first match you have to make sure you have enough energy so after I practise I eat another meal.

Then, after that, I eat another meal for the doubles and then I eat another meal. Its four, five meals a day and thats a lot.

Despite eating so much the World no.1 said that she is still loosing weight.

The funny part is I am still losing weight. Its challenging because I am eating food I dont want to eat.

I dont like pasta at all. Every day I have to shovel it in at least twice a day its just part of the job.

I dont like breakfast so now I will skip that. And I am going to a McDonalds thats always my treat after I win or lose.

Ill have cheeseburger and small fries. In the States I have a kids meal but here I mix it up because I love curry sauce, which we dont get at home. Its my special treat, she added.

Williams became only the fourth woman to lift the Venus Rosewater Dish five times after Billie Jean King (6), Steffi Graf (7), and nine-time winner Martina Navratilova. (ANI)
