Serena Backs Venus To Keep Wimbledon Title In The Family

Serena Backs Venus To Keep Wimbledon Title In The Family

On June 9, seven-time Grand Slam champion and former world number one Venus Williams was involved in a vehicle crash in Florida, which would lead to the death of a 78-year-old man two weeks later.

Arkansas coach Jack Crowe said he met with athletic director Frank Broyles the morning after the loss. The next week, the Razorbacks and. "It's two long weeks". I have one more match that I'd like to, you know, be the victor of.

Williams has won seven Grand Slam titles in all and shall be looking to add another slam to her impressive silverware.

So the 37-year-old, this time is carrying the hopes of the Williams clan while her younger sibling takes time out to have a baby. She missed some big tournaments and made several early exits at the majors.

It was a rare and revealing display of emotion by a player typically seen as pleasant but often careful and guarded in her answers.

However, Venus has found a way to turn back time in 2017, playing some wonderful tennis, which also saw her reach the final of the Australian Open, where she, again, was stopped right at the end by Serena.

"There's still a lot to be done".

British hopes flew high with Johanna Konta, until the vastly more experienced older Williams played ideal attacking tennis, effectively anchoring the Brit and leaving her on the back foot.

"She just loves to play and she enjoys going out there, that's what it shows when she keeps playing, even though she has achieved so many things".

What other Wimbledon finals are happening this weekend?

At 37, Venus Williams is aiming to become the oldest female champion at Wimbledon in the Open Era.

Longevity, battling odds, strength of character, sheer bloody-mindedness - all hallmarks of a champion, which the elder of the Williams sisters has been, despite having 16 lesser Slam titles than the little one.

The Spaniard slammed a bullet of a down-the-line return victor that landed smack in the corner to break for 3-0 in the second set, then immediately walked to her bench, nearly before the ball had touched the ground, and without once taking a glance at her opponent. She's tall enough, at 5ft 11in, and she has a nice motion that now I don't think she makes enough use of. Muguruza predicted a fast-paced final. He bested Federer in 2014 during the U.S Open semifinals and went on to win it all. "The racket has to talk".

The American winning her sixth title some 17 summers after her first would be an incredible tale, especially given her traumas off-court. The initial police report said she had run a red light in her Toyota Sequoia just as a Hyundai Accent driven by Linda Barson entered the intersection on a green light. "It doesn't feel that 2012 was that long ago, I looked more or less the same!" Muguruza won their last meeting, the only one played this year, in the quarterfinals in Rome in three sets. They have never played on grass.

For one, while her serve is good, it can be improved. Form and fitness clearly aren't an issue, and she has come across as relaxed on her off day.

But the sportswoman thinks unusual cravings could make her pregnancy "tougher". Williams is the oldest Wimbledon finalist since then.

Venus Williams has fired 117 unreturnable first serves in these Championships, out of 260 total in play.

Elsewhere, there's doubles action and Court 2 should be tasty as Andrew Castle and Michael Chang play Patrick McEnroe and Jeff Tarango, while Court 12 has a very British flavour as Jamie Baker and Colin Fleming take on Greg Rusedski and Fabrice Santoro. "So I think experience can either work against you or for you". ". I don't think I could ever be that nervous [now]".
