Tennis star Serena Williams avoids reading media's match reports because she fears that positive press will make her "big headed".
Williams doesn't want to read stories that praise her because it might make her cocky, reports contactmusic.com.
She says: "I don't read anything. One time, I think it was '99, I read this article. It was really good and I was like, 'Oh yeah! I'm the bomb.'
"I just got too headstrong. I don't want to be like some of those celebrities walking around, just so full of themselves. I always want to be down to earth, want to be a person like when you meet them, they're the same person that you think of them in the article or something.
"When my career is over, I've been saving a lot of articles, I'll go back and read them. I don't want to be big headed (so) I can barely get through the door."
