American tennis player Sachia Vickery took to social media to reveal that she had a practice with Serena Williams and Venus Williams. Serena, 40, is preparing for the National Bank Open in Toronto, which kicks off on August 07.
On the other side, Venus is getting ready to play at next week's Citi Open in Washington. Vickery posted a 15-minute clip of her practice with Serena and captioned it: "Practice with Da (the) GOAT."
A bit later, Vickery posted another clip and this time it was from her practice with Venus.
Sachia Vickery and Serena Williams practicing earlier this morning in Florida.
Vickery captioned her second video: Practice number two, also the GOAT, Venus Williams. Not me hitting back-to-back with two legends."
When hitting with one legend is not enough. 💁🏼♂️ Sachia and Venus Williams also took to the practice courts today.
Serena, Venus Williams set to compete this summer
Last week, Venus was announced as a wildcard recipient for this year's Citi Open.
Venus, 42, is set to make her debut on the hard courts of Washington. “I am excited to be playing the Citi Open for the first time this summer,” Venus Williams said. “I love Washington, DC, and returning to the nation’s capital to play in front of a community that has supported me so strongly feels like a homecoming.
I am looking forward to being back on the courts and competing in DC soon”. We won't be seeing both Serena and Venus in action at the Citi Open but the two are expected to be at the National Bank Open in Toronto.
“We are thrilled to have both Venus and Serena playing the National Bank Open presented by Rogers this year,” Toronto Tournament Director Karl Hale said in a statement. “They have meant a great deal to our sport and having them at a tournament really puts a spark in everyone from the fans, tournament staff, and even the other players. They’re two of the greatest players in history and we look forward to hosting them in Toronto”.
