Tennis: Reigning world number one Serena Williams has shared that she picked up balls for her elder sister Venus Williams during the latter’s practice session few days back.

16-time Grand Slam winner Serena is one of the best female tennis players of all-time but she cannot change the fact that she is younger in age than her sister and she has to obey her orders sometimes.

Serena wrote on her facebook page some days ago, “Day 2 off. I'm going nuts. I went to Venus Williams practice to pick up balls. #issues”

Venus became a superstar before Serena, when she ruled the tennis world at the start of 21st century. The American captured back to back Wimbledon and US Open titles in 2000 and 2001, rising to the top of world rankings. However, Venus’ reign was finished by her own sister. She lost five Grand Slam finals at the hands of her sister in 2002 and 2003.

Injuries, diseases and accidents have troubled both sisters’ career throughout but Serena has always bounced back better than her sister. Venus won last of her seven Grand Slams at the 2008 Wimbledon, when he grabbed her fifth title at the All England Club. The 32-year-old is still fighting to get to the top but she is failing in her job, having occupied that 21st position in world rankings at the moment.

On the other hand, Serena is still the player to beat in women’s tennis in her 30’s. She captured Wimbledon, London Olympics, US Open and WTA Championships last year.

Both sisters are having a break from the WTA Tour these days and practicing for the clay court season. They will resume competitive tennis at the Mutua Madrid Open later in this month.
