Biography of Venus Williams

Venus Ebony Starr Williams is a tennis player from the USA. Williams has won seven singles Grand Slam titles, including five at Wimbledon.

She was a former No. 1 in both singles and doubles. She is widely recognized as one of the greatest athletes to ever play the game.

She surpassed Althea Gibson to become the second African American woman to ever reach No. 1 in the Open Era. Oracene Price and Richard Williams, Venus’s parents, served as her coaches.

She got four consecutive significant finals between 2002 and 2003 but lost each time to her sister Serena. She also had injuries, only taking home one major trophy between 2003 and 2006.

Venus Williams has won seven women’s singles major titles and 14 women’s doubles major titles. On June 7, 2010, she and Serena won the non-calendar year Grand Slam at the French Open, and she rose to the top of the doubles rankings for the first time.

The pair also won three Olympic gold medals in women’s double, in 2000, 2008, and 2012, adding to Venus’ singles gold in 2000 and her mixed doubles silver in 2016.

Williams is the active player with the second-most singles championships, behind only her sister Serena, with 49 WTA titles.

Along with Serena, she is one of just two women still competing who have advanced to all four major singles finals. In 2001 and 2017, Williams led the season prize money for both times, and she is second only to Serena in terms of total career prize money won.

Venus Williams Biography

Early life

Williams was born in Lynwood, California, to Richard Williams and Oracene Price, and grew up in West Palm Beach, Florida.

A professional tennis player spotted Williams’ potential at the age of seven. Her father stopped sending his daughters to tournaments when she was 11 because he wanted them to focus on schoolwork.

Another motivation was racial, as he allegedly heard the parents of other players disparage the Williams sisters during tournaments.

Personal life

Williams has dated a number of men in the past, from Hank Kuehne to Cuban model Elio Pis and publishing heir Nicholas Hammond.
