Venus Williams didn’t get a great start to the 2021 tennis season. The American legend lost to Sara Errani in the second round of the Australian Open 2021, and that ended her campaign at the Grand Slam. Surprisingly, she was able to win just a single game and lost the match 1-6, 0-6.

Like her sister Serena Williams, 7-time Grand Slam champion Venus Williams is also quite active on Instagram. The older sister frequently posts about her life, her day-to-day routines, and about the people she loves and admires.

In her recent Instagram post, one can see her with her mother, sister Serena, and Serena’s daughter Olympia. It was a little get-together for the Williams’ family yesterday, and Venus certainly enjoyed it.

“I love all the strong powerful women in my life… On a side note, I would have tagged my mom, but she deleted her account,” wrote Williams in the Instagram caption.

Venus was clearly trying to highlight the importance of the strong and powerful women in her life. Interestingly, she also decided to tag young Olympia, who might have been a source of inspiration to Venus.

Venus Williams reiterates the importance of family during this tough time

As the world is still battling the coronavirus pandemic, Venus tried to emphasize the significance of a family. She mentioned that during unprecedented times such as these, it is important for everyone to stick to their family.

“In such an unprecedented and uncertain time, gotta hold on tight to the important things, like family,” added the former World No.1 player.

Although Venus Williams is 40 right now, she hasn’t openly talked about her retirement plans yet. Fans want her to play as long as possible and will want her to lift some titles before bidding goodbye to the sport. Will Venus be able to clinch a title before the end of the 2021 tennis season?
