Lightbulb Venus Williams to young players: "Don't make excuses."

@BenRothenberg
Venus had strong words of advice for younger generations of players: "Don't make excuses." Said with a sternness Venus doesn't often have.

@The_Changeover
"If you didn't win the match, guess what, it's you on the court. So figure it out.” -Venus Williams’ advice to the next generation

Venus: Competitive fire can be learned. She learned from watching Serena. Advice to younger generation was stern: "Don't make excuses."

But she was one of the worst sore losers in the sport

She was, but that was years ago. Venus has really matured since then.

Hey Crater,

I think you're right, cause it ain't this new generation

My mind went back to when Venus and Serena took down Stefi Graf, Seles, and other top players in the draw to set up their first Williams final in Miami. They were about the same age as Sloane and these other young players, and they managed to take them down. But this younger generation can't seem to win when it matters.

maybe she's speaking from experience?
and can hingis fans please refrain from calling any player a sore loser. i don't recall venus ever crying her way out of a stadium after getting her ass handed to her in a final.
