One of the trailblazers of the game, Venus Williams had a legendary career as a tennis player. Not just on the court, she has been successful off the court as well. Along with many other female players like Billie Jean King and Serena Williams, Venus was also a great advocate for equality in tennis. 

Currently, the 41-year-old tennis star is away from tennis. In the meantime, she decided to pass on some of her knowledge to the young kids. Recently, she visited a VIP clinic at Moore Park in Miami, where she met a bunch of kids. Venus’ coach, Eric Hechtman also joined her in the clinic. Incidentally, Venus’ sportswear brand EleVen by Venus sponsored the whole session inside the clinic.

The last few weeks have been quite busy for the two sisters due to the Oscars. Their film ‘King Richard’ was in the spotlight as the lead actor Will Smith won quite a few awards due to his outstanding performance as Richard Williams.

Although the ‘Slapping Incident’ took some shine away from the Williams family, the sisters still cheered for the actor. Now that the award season is most probably over, the Williams Sisters are looking forward to returning to tennis. Earlier, they both hinted at a potential comeback on the tour. However, it’s still unclear about their return timeline.
