All throughout her career, Venus Williams has been a great asset to the tennis world. Although she doesn’t win before like she used to, her presence on Tour itself is a motivation. She has influenced a number of youngsters that are now well-established players on the women’s Tour.

Williams first started this wonderful initiative last year during the pandemic. It was a great move, as people all over the world seemed to be losing their motivation and desire to do things during the lockdown, and being able to physically exert oneself provides a sense of upliftment to the mind.

Williams began her 2021 season in Melbourne, competing at the Australian Open. Unfortunately, her journey ended pretty quickly, as she lost in the second round. After that, she competed in Miami but ended her stint after losing in the opening round.

Her performances kept on deteriorating as she crashed out in the opening round of the next four events. While her single’s stint at the Wimbledon Championships, ended after a second-round loss to Ons Jabeur, her mixed doubles stint ended after her partner, Nick Kyrgios, had to pull out due to an injury.
