yea it was:

At 12, Venus had a 63-0 record on the junior circuit. She turned pro in 1994, at 14, making her debut at the Bank of the West Classic in Oakland, Calif. (The next year, she nailed a $12 million Reebok endorsement deal.) Last fall, Williams became the first black woman since Althea Gibson in 1958 to reach the finals of the U.S. Open. Her '97 prize money totaled nearly $470,000. This year, teamed with Justin Gimelstob at the Australian Open, she won her first Grand Slam title, in mixed doubles.

the tourns she played weren't ITF events but USTA ones.

the ITF won't have her record cos they only count the U18 events on the Official records.

Try to contact the USTA

I'd email them and I'm sure they'd give them to you. Everytime I've asked them for info, they've always been very cordial and forthcoming.
