“We Stopped It Many Years Ago”: Venus Williams Opens up on Practising With Sister Serena Williams

Venus Williams has had a very fruitful career herself. The older William sister has won seven grand slam titles. Venus has also won a mammoth 49 WTA titles, which itself sounds irrational. To win five Wimbledon and two US Open titles are something players would only dream of.

Venus along with her younger sister Serena Williams has been groomed into a force in tennis thanks to their father. Venus has often been living in the shadows of her sister. However, that doesn’t take any credit away from the greatness she has achieved on her own.

Just the other day on asking Venus if she still has a knock with her, she said “No. Not that much. We stopped practicing many many years ago. We just like to work on different things. So in order for us to get our best practices we got to do different practices.”

 

Both players have different departments they like to focus on. Elaborating more on this topic, she said “Serena likes to hit a lot of groundstrokes, I like to do a lot of other stuff. And also when we practice together we spend the whole time saying what do you want to do? Whatever u want. No what do u want? (Laughs) we don’t always hit. But sometimes we do and those are the best practices.”

Phenomenal Career of Venus Williams

Venus has had an extraordinary no only in singles but also in doubles. Along with her 49 WTA singles titles, she also has an astounding 22 doubles titles. She’s won 73 titles which include two mixed doubles titles too. Venus has also won four Olympic Gold Medals, comprising one in the singles (2000) three in the doubles (2000, 2008, 2012).

 

Williams has an all all-court game. She has been known to be an aggressive baseliner. Due to her height, she has the ability to cover the court far better than her rivals. She’s not had the best of seasons this year. We look forward to her having a more successful season in 2021.

‘Without Roger Federer’s patience…’, says famous trainer

Published

on

After more than a year of inactivity, Roger Federer will return to play a tournament on 8 March in Doha. The Swiss maestro last played an official match at the 2020 Australian Open, when he was defeated in three sets with Novak Djokovic (later winner of the tournament).

Many questions that arise spontaneously to millions of fans around the world, above all “Will he be able to get back competitive?” His former coach, Heinz Gunthardt, told him about the matter. “It will be one of the greatest challenges ever seen in the world of sport.

There is no doubt. A couple of things have to be fine. He has to move well, he has to build a little confidence with the pitch and with the game, as well as with his body. Playing at a high level right away? Possible, but the first thing to do will be to serve well.

Of course, though, he won’t be used to the game, but that’s not the biggest problem. The focus will be on how well he can move. Why not, he could even win Wimbledon maybe. Why don’t fans have to be optimistic about his return? There is much more to be curious than pessimistic about his condition.”

While speaking with Rene Stauffer, Pierre Paganini made a startling revelation, explaining how Federer’s body has suffered significant degradation during this period – which is in sharp contrast to its condition during his 2016 injury hiatus.

Paganini talks about Roger Federer

“Without Roger Federer’s patience, the guillotine would have fallen long ago,” Pierre Paganini stated. “He depends on it (passion), and so do we! When a player who’s almost 40 has to do exercises that a 70-year-old can do without any problems, and is happy that it gets better every day – if that’s not passion (then what is).”

Paganini further revealed that Roger Federer’s participation at the Dubai Open is not yet a guarantee, as was previously believed to be. “At the moment it is only clear that he is playing Doha, then we’ll see,” Paganini revealed.

Federer is the most successful player at the Doha Open, winning the tournament previously on three occasions in 2005, 2006, and 2011. The event is played on hard courts in an outdoor environment. The tournament will be played from the 8th of march and will end on the 13th of the month. The ATP Dubai 500 will begin on the 14th of March and will end on the 20th of March.

Novak Djokovic: ‘I once showed my son Stefan who Rafael Nadal is’

Published

Novak Djokovic attended an event held by his endorsement Asics, shoe producer, on Saturday in Shanghai, China, and the interviewers showed him a photo featuring him and his son Stefan staying on a bench together looking at something on the Wimbledon practice courts.

That was actually a very funny moment. ‘I was showing him (Rafael) Nadal, who was playing two courts away because he doesn’t know anybody from tennis but he knows Nadal because I explained him, This is the guy who hits the ball very very hard.

When he sees him, he says, Oh, you are the guy who hits the ball very very hard’, said Djokovic. Talking on his comeback, the 31-year-old added: ‘I worked very hard to be able to regain confidence on the court after that I had surgery in February.

It took me several months to be able to get my game together. I have made some compensations with my game especially with my serve, I made certain changes with the racket so it took a little bit of time to get used to the new racket and serve and not to have the elbow disturbing me.
