Venus Williams hopes to end a healthy and successful summer with another first — a World Team Tennis championship.

Sean Connery is pumped

RIGHT ON!

Sean Connery is fired up about the US Open. And he is pretty hyped about these things, too.

Williams will play for the defending champion Washington Kastles at the WTT Finals Weekend at the Family Circle Tennis Center. Orange County takes on Sacramento for the Western Conference crown Friday night before Williams' Kastles face John McEnroe and the New York Sportimes on Saturday in the Eastern Conference finals.

The conference champions meet Sunday for the WTT title.

Williams said Thursday she's never won a league title and hopes to add that to her accomplishments, something that grew this summer when she teamed with sister Serena to win an Olympic doubles gold medal.

Venus said her stamina's improved since returning to tennis in March after dealing with Sjogren's syndrome.
