The year 2000 was a monumental year in the career of Venus Williams. She had made it to her maiden final at the Wimbledon Championships and was on course to win the title. However, in the summit clash, she was up against Lindsay Davenport, the second seed. Venus caused a massive upset as she defeated Davenport in straight sets to clinch her first Grand Slam title. Later that year, she also went on to win her first US Open title in front of her ‘home’ crowd.

Apart from her exploits in tennis, Venus is also a fashion icon, both on and off the court. Recently, she reminisced how she and Serena put on a fashion statement on the tennis court.
