Venus Williams sees Kim off
Kim vs. Venus Williams. This is the headline for the single match of Kim's Thank You Games on 12 December at the Sportpaleis in Antwerp.
On Wednesday 12 December Kim will bow out of her tennis career and this time for good. Kim's Thank You Games are completely dedicated to that farewell. In her last match Kim plays Venus Williams. Venus has a special relationship with the Antwerp Sportpaleis too: she took part in the Diamond Games four times, she won the tournament twice.
Venus Williams: "This is a very special moment for me. I was in Antwerp already at the first edition of the Diamond Games in 2002. I'm always very happy to play here, the audience is incredible. It is an honour to be able to play against Kim in her last match. I am really looking forward to it and am very pleased with the invitation! "
For Bob Verbeeck, organizer of Kim's Thank You Games, Venus is the perfect adversary for Kim: "Over the years Venus has contributed largely to the success of the Diamond Games, through her tennis and her victories, but also through her personality. Venus joined the Diamond Games right from the start, at the start of Kim's breakthrough too. We could not have hoped for a more symbolic goodbye for Kim."
After the match, there will be a one-hour-long Kim's Thank You farewell show. The evening is concluded by a doubles match.
