Can’t stop, won’t stop.

Venus Williams was working hard on her tennis skillz on Thursday when duty called!

The star left the court and was greeted by none other than her too-cute pup! Aww!!!

We’d be eager to quit practice early too with that precious pile of fluff waiting for us.

Venus probably gave him tons of smooches before getting to work, because she posted this pic with the caption:

“Just got off the court so now I can answer more of your questions#VenusOnEleVen tweet me @elevenbyvenus”

There's no doubt she snuggled this little guy while answering questions because omigod how could you not?!?

When is hanging out with the First Lady not a big deal??

Probably when you're an international tennis superstar — and even then we're not totally sure it would ever NOT be a big deal! It just becomes a big deal for the First Lady too! LOLz!

Michelle Obama and Venus Williams hung out together during a recent event, and it looks like they could be besties! So much so that we're glad both of them felt comfortable snapping this pic, which Venus posted along with this message:

Legal problems, schmegal shproblems!

Showtime IS planning on showing the documentary about Venus and Serena Williams, basically giving a middle finger to the U.S. Tennis Association, because they want the U.S. District Court in NY to ban it! Instead, Showtime is showing it on August 23! Ha!

Why does the USTA want it banned?

venus williams wimbledon tennis drop out injury back sad syndrome pain healing

Bad news, twin and tennis lovers! Venus Williams has pulled out of Wimbledon!!

That's right, half of the Williams sisters has had to drop out of the Wimbledon Championships because she hurt her lower back. The injury is in addition to having the chronic autoimmune disease Sjogren's syndrome — which is hard enough to deal with. She's one tough woman, but she isn't stupid. We agree that it's a better idea to sit out than fight through!

Here's what she said about her decision:

Serena And Venus Williams Do Some Retail Therapy In Rome!

serena and venus williams do some shopping in rome italy

Being two of the best tennis players in the world is NOT easy! Just ask the Williams sisters!

Serena and Venus are both hard at work overseas competing in the Internazionali BNL d'Italia tournament in Italy! But the girls decided to take a little break from the action and hit the streets do a little shopping!

As Ron Burgundy would say, "When in Rome!" LOLz!

Serena continues to show why she's the number 1 female tennis player in the world and is cruising along to the quarterfinals! Venus, on the other hand, had an early exit after she was defeated by Laura Robson in the 1st round!

Nothing like a little retail therapy to take you're mind off a tough loss, right ladies? Besides, from the looks of bags she's carrying it's not like she's going home empty handed! Ha!
