Paris (AP) -- She has rubbed shoulders with Donald Trump, but Serena Williams seemingly won't be voting for the presumptive Republican presidential nominee — because she doesn't vote at all.

Adroitly sidestepping a question about Trump at the French Open, where Williams is the defending champion, she says she is "not involved at all" in politics.

Williams, a Jehovah's witness, adds "I don't vote. It goes back to my religion."

She says she has met Trump "several times," because she lives in Palm Beach, Florida, and he has a 17-acre estate, the Mar-a-Lago Club, there.

Williams says "everyone in Palm Beach kind of knows each other."
