Many people are surprised that Venus Williams is still playing tennis and refuses to let her health problems derail her. One of those people is her mother Oracene.
"Yeah, I am,” Oracene commented in an interview to the media. “You know she’s out there and can’t lift her arms and stuff. It’s determination. I know part of this is she wanted make it to the Olympics. After that I have no idea. I think she needs to get it out of her system."
"Serena is an inspiration because if she can do that and she was on her death bed and I'm not dying, I do have a disease that I'll have the rest of my life but at the end I can do it too," Venus commented in their press conference after winning the doubles title on Saturday
