Obviously, she could not have left out elder sister and tennis pro Venus Williams while talking about the inspirational people in her life.

 

 

Venus and Serena are one of the most reputed doubles team tennis has ever witnessed. The duo has won 14 Grand Slam titles together and three Olympic Gold medals.

Having said that, it is clear that their bond is extraordinary. The 23-time Grand Slam winner claims that Venus is the one that keeps her going, also highlighting her sister’s fight against an autoimmune disease as her inspiration.

 

 

Serena Williams on inspirations from Venus Williams

The Williams sisters have grown up together with the same dream; they even fulfilled it together. The two former World No. 1s, with their inexplicable potential, have been an example for athletes over two decades.

More than they dominated the sport, they have uplifted one another through tough times.

 

The 39-year-old spoke about Venus’s character that even the world is a fan of. She said, “She’s so positive and she never stops.” After being diagnosed with Sjogren’s Syndrome in 2011, she claimed the third gold medal in doubles with sister Serena Williams.

“She does so many things and she has more energy than anyone I know,” Serena continued. “But she deals with so much on a health thing that it’s so inspiring.”

 

 

It is still painful for Serena to remember her sister's death

The sisters, even though they’re 40 and 39, are still pursuing their tennis career in full swing. While Venus has stated that she is playing for their father, Serena wants to become the all-time major titles record-holder.

 

 

Even though they stopped training together a long time ago, they are still each other’s support system. Interestingly, Venus is also designing her younger sister’s new house in Florida.

 

 

Besides tennis, the two have also aced the business world. Serena is involved in fashion, jewelry, investing, and philanthropy. Venus, on the other hand, found her success as an interior designer and with a plant-based diet brand.

 

 

It is unlikely to see the duo take part in the Australian Open doubles event. Hopefully, fans will get to see them in the 2021 Tokyo Olympics.

‘I was down’: Federer had hard time before 2nd knee surgery

Published

on

DOHA, Qatar (AP) — Roger Federer never seriously contemplated retirement while he was away from the tennis tour for more than a year. He did have a hard time dealing with the need for a repeat operation on his bad right knee, though.

“I was down. Obviously I couldn’t believe I had to do a second one,” Federer said Sunday ahead of his appearance at the Qatar Open. “This is definitely a moment where you maybe question a little bit more.”

The 39-year-old Federer’s first match since the 2020 Australian Open will come Wednesday in Doha against Dan Evans or Jeremy Chardy.

Federer’s first procedure on his right knee occurred in February 2020. That knee kept swelling up after bike rides or walks with his four children; he announced in June that he had had a second surgery.

The 20-time Grand Slam champion will monitor how this comeback goes over the next several months and then assess things.

“I know it’s more on the rare side for almost a 40-year-old to come back after almost a year being out. And I was surprised how long it took. But I took a decision quite early with the team that I wanted to take the time, no rush, to get back onto the tour,” he said. “Important is that I’m injury-free, pain-free, and I can actually enjoy myself out there on tour. So we’ll see how it goes now. I’m curious myself to find out.”

What seemed clear from Federer’s session with reporters on Sunday: Wimbledon is what matters the most to him at this point.

He has won a men’s-record eight titles at the All England Club and came oh-so-close to a ninth in the 2019 final there, holding two championship points before eventually losing to Novak Djokovic in a fifth-set tiebreaker.

Wimbledon was canceled last year for the first time since 1945 because of the coronavirus pandemic.

It is scheduled to be played June 28 to July 11.

“I know I need to go back to training after here again,” said Federer, who pulled out of the Miami Open later this month. “So from this standpoint, it’s still a building up to being stronger, better, fitter, faster and all that stuff. I hope, then, by Wimbledon, I’m going to be 100%, and from then on, then the season really starts for me. Everything until then, it’s just ‘Let’s see how it goes.’”

He is curious what travel and tournament life will be like during a pandemic — “bubble life, quarantines all around, the whole mask situation” — and, most of all, how his repaired knee handles competition.

“That’s really the only concern I have: Is the knee going to hold up? As of now, I’m not sure,” Federer said. “I did everything I possibly could.”

They may be the greatest tennis player of all time and the first American to marry into the royal family in decades (and the first to leave in decades), but Serena Williams and Meghan Markle have remained loyal friends since their first real hang out in 2014.

Since then, the two have became close confidantes, with Markle regularly attending Williams’ tennis matches, and Williams defending her friend from the mountain of negative attention she’s received since 2017. After Markle’s bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, Williams took to Instagram to call her friend “truly noble.”

September 2014: Markle congratulates Williams on Twitter for winning the US Open, and their friendship grows.

Markle shared more about their friendship on The Tig: “She quickly became a confidante I would text when I was traveling, the friend I would rally around for her tennis matches, and the down-to-earth chick I was able to grab lunch with just a couple weeks ago in Toronto.”

She added, “We are both the same age, have a penchant for hot sauces, and adore fashion, but what connects us more than those things is perhaps our belief in exceeding expectations — our endless ambition.”
