Mirjana Lucic-Baroni doesn't seem to care who wins the incredible Venus vs Serena Williams final on Saturday, admitting she'll probably be on the plane and well out of the loop.

"Would you believe me if I tell you that I don't care at all?," she said when asked who her favourite for the final was.

"I hope it doesn't sound the way it sounded. I'm sure it's going to be a great final. I'm happy for both Venus and Serena. It's something really special. What they've done, what they've achieved, two sisters, incredible really. It's an incredible story. I'm happy for them. They have that special moment again. It's amazing.

"I'm going to be on a plane, flying home, see my family, get a little bit of rest. So, yeah, I'm done. I'm done. I'm not going to watch."

Lucic-Baroni lost in under an hour against Serena on Day 11, winning only three games throughout the entire match which finished at 6-2 6-1 in Serena's favour.
