“She Was My Role Model” – Venus Williams on Serena Williams
In a recent interview with E! News, Venus Williams has revealed that her sister Serena Williams is her role model and no one understands her better.
“She was my role model. No one knows what I’m going through more than her. She’s someone who understands me without even saying a word,” she said.
Venus added that she couldn’t imagine her career without Serena.
“I know it’s unusual to have a sibling in sport, but that’s the only experience I’ve had so I can’t imagine not having one. From what I understand , 99% of people do it alone, but I’ve never had to.” she says.
In a separate interview, the seven-time Major champion revealed her favorite moments were playing alongside Serena Williams at the Olympics and added that she is “retired from doubles now”.
“My favorite moments are probably the Olympics together. I have so many moments to share and watch her and be in awe of how she could play,” she added. “I think I’m retired from doubles now,” said Venus Williams.
The Williams sisters took to the doubles court at the recently concluded US Open but fell at the first hurdle to Czech pair Lucie Hradecka and Linda Noskova.
