Despite pouring her heart out in a blog post on her official website last week, Australian Open champion Serena Williams now says it wasn't such a big deal.

Williams says she was shocked at the reaction her blog post received from fans and other blogs. "I didn't know it would be that big. (So) many people go on my website, which is fantastic. So many hits. It was like, Oh my God," she said.

Williams said she was in a "melancholy state" when she wrote about a nameless boyfriend who stopped calling her. "I think it got really out of control," said Williams about the fan reaction.

Williams said she would continue to expose her innermost feelings on her blog including what not to do in relationships and secrets of her recent weight loss. "It's really interactive and I always try to bare my soul so people can kind of see what kind of person I am and get a better feeling for Serena Williams," she said.


    That post really touched me, so I am glad to have the chance to read it.

    Jakie Long is one fine man! I'm glad that she is being classy about it and not acting like Vivica did w/ the breakup with 50!

    I like her honesty. I also like that she isn't perfect nor portrays herself to be. She has accomplished much but is still a human and goes through the same ups and downs. She doesn't always look as perfect as people want her to look but she is still out there living her life, making her dreams - realities.
