The Williams sisters hold a very high post in the list of the all-time greatest tennis players. Being doubles partners, Venus and Serena Williams have won 22 titles, including 14 Grand Slams and 3 Olympic Gold medals. But what is it like to play together? The big sister explains.
Both the sisters have different personalities; however, their passion for tennis is the same. From their first face-off in 1998 to 2020, they have played 31 times, where Serena leads 19-12.
According to the 7-time Grand Slam champion, Venus Williams, the feeling of playing with her sister is above all. She also revealed that they have been playing doubles together since they were 8 years old.
On the show, the 40-year-old stated that even though they are competitors, they have also achieved greatness as partners. “A lot of people know us for maybe playing against each other, but we have done so much together on the court,” Venus said.
And behind all their titles and rankings, playing together has made a distinction for them. So when she was asked what it’s like playing with the 23-time Grand Slam champion, Venus happily responded.
She said, “It’s the best feeling.” And while one cannot easily sum up two decades of history, Venus answered it pretty well. “I am still the big sister, and a lot of people ask me, ‘What are your favorite moments on the court,’ and I’m always like, oh my gosh, when I play with my sister,” she concluded.
Scheduled for February 8, the Australian Open 2021 is the tournament every player and fan is waiting for. It will once again provide the 39-year-old Serena Williams with an opportunity to win her 24th Grand Slam title.
Considering that the two great players are training together again, the results might show up in their favor. However, we will have to wait and see what the new season has in stock for the Williams sisters.
