The Williams sisters are arguably two of the most popular players on the WTA tour. Although Serena Williams is 39, she engages herself in various entrepreneurial activities off the court. In addition, Venus Williams also does the same.

Injuries have been a common feature in Serena’s 2021 season. Although she competed in all Grand Slam tournaments this year, she missed the Tokyo Olympics due to a leg injury. With less than two weeks left for the US Open, she will look to recuperate in time for the hard court Grand Slam.

On the other hand, Venus Williams looks well off her younger sister in the women’s singles category. While she also took part in all three Grand Slam tournaments, she faced very early exits and fell out of the Top 100.

On an entrepreneurial front however, Venus is making significant gains. Along with being the CEO of her own interior design firm, she also has her own fashion line titled EleVen. In addition, she also engages herself with various activities related to wellness.

Earlier today, the 41-year-old announced she will go live on Instagram with her sister Serena. While she tagged her sister in the story, the discussion looks likely to be based on wellness.

The session will take place at 5:00pm EDT, and 2:00pm PDT. Expect fans to catch the Williams sisters live at the time given their massive fan following on the social media platform, which runs into the millions.

Despite her World No. 20 ranking at the moment, one cannot disregard the chances of the 23-time Grand Slam champion. In fact, six of those have come at Flushing Meadows. Adding her seven Australian Open titles to that mix means she is one of the toughest competitors to beat on hard courts.

However, younger and fitter challengers await the American in the draw this year. Hence, her path to a record-extending 24th Grand Slam title looks much harder than before.
