According to AP,  Serena Williams is part of a new venture with LeBron James, Amar’e Stoudemire, Chris Paul, and Pitbull to promote Sleep Sheets, which bills itself as a natural sleep aid.

Serena said she’s had trouble sleeping for years because she’s “constantly on a natural high, high on life, and happy, happy, happy, and working.”

She said her sleep difficulty was so bad one year it affected her at the Australian Open.

“Several years ago before the finals, I couldn’t sleep, and I had to take something to relax and make me go to sleep,” she said. “It was obviously a pharmaceutical thing, but I physically couldn’t sleep, and the only thing with that is that it slows you down the next day.”

“I did, but I was a little sluggish,” she said, laughing. “It’s nothing that I ever want to do again. I can’t put the finals of the Australian Open on the line because I can’t sleep.”

Besides her excitement for upcoming Grand Slams and the Olympics, Serena said she’s also still focused on her side ventures, which include an upcoming appearance on the TV show Drop Dead Diva, her nails (she’s a licensed manicurist and has a nail polish line), her clothing company, Aneres, and business school, just to name a few.
