The 42-year-old Venus Williams hasn’t competed in a singles match since August of last year. Venus Williams made a return announcement this week in preparation for the next tournaments in Toronto and Washington. Williams will compete in their first singles competition in a year at the tournament in the nation’s capital on August 1.
The tennis player should then get onto the court for the Toronto competition. Serena Williams, Venus’ sister, was also confirmed to be present in Canada. Karl Hale, the director of the competition, recently made the following remarks: “Venus and Serena Williams competing in the National Bank Open this year makes us very happy.
For the viewers, the tournament staff, and the other players, these two tennis players are crucial. They have contributed much to our sport. We can’t wait to watch them in action in Toronto since they are two of the best tennis players in history.”
Venus did, in fact, compete in the most recent Wimbledon tournament, but only in the mixed doubles division. Venus Williams and Jamie Murray‘s mixed doubles team received an easy release of a wild card from the organizers.
The two lost against Alicia Barnett and Johnny O’Mara after making it to the tournament’s round of 16.
These three celebrities would be invited to dinner by Venus Williams.
Venus Williams, the first black player to hold the top spot in the global rankings, won seven Grand Slam championships.
Venus recently responded to a series of fan questions on Instagram live, during which she shared an intriguing curiosity. Venus chose the three players with whom she enjoys a wonderful rapport on both the men’s and women’s Tours when a fan asked the tennis player which players she would want to have dinner with.
She said as follows: “Serena Williams, Reilly Opelka, and Grigor Dimitrov are my choices. I’m sorry, but I can only select these—and they are the Tour participants to whom I have the strongest attachment.” Among the most anticipated athletes in this US hard-court swing are Venus and Serena.
