"Until Venus came along, tennis was dead. Venus brought tennis to life. When Serena came along and added more life, tennis became a very popular sport all over again. Until then, tennis had died and went to hell." R. Williams
"I want to do things on my own terms, I can't have anything take me out.
I have never given up and it's important for me to prove to myself that I can do this, and to prove to me that i'm a champion.
If I were just to sit down, lay down and give in, then I wouldn't have any respect for myself." VW
Re: 2013 ǁ Wimbledon “Venus”: Once a Champion, always a Champion! ǁ
my favourite outfits are 2003 (LOVE the back) and 2008 goddess dress. also special mention to the tina turner shimmy dress. Vee looks good in the above pics but i honestly would prefer V skips wimbledon if her back is not doing well, but it would also be a joy to see her play!
I think everyone in sport can be inspired by what Venus has done and how she's come back and winning championships and just doing so well. So I have been utterly completely inspired by that. I just have no words for it. There is no greater champion in my eyes.
