Venus Williams is not only a tennis legend: but she is also a social media star, especially on Instagram, where she posts photos and videos of tournaments, but also off courts moments. The US posted a video on Instagram, in which she shows herself trying to prepare her sister Serena Williams' favorite pasta dish.
Although Williams is known to follow a vegan diet, she admitted that she was making an exception in cooking the Italian cheese platter. She said in the video (in which she amusingly wrote cheating for vegans): "Making Serena Williams' favorite cacio pepe pasta." Williams added that this was her first time making the dish: "This is my first time making cacio pepe.
I've definitely made some mistakes along the way."
Venus and Serena, two US legends
Serena and Venus won 121 singles tournaments, 4 mixed doubles tournaments and occupied a total of more than 300 weeks at number one in singles and eight weeks also in the doubles rankings.
After the 2002 French Open, Venus and Serena were number one and two respectively in the singles rankings. Both are part of the small group of tennis players who have won the most titles ever. Partnering in women's doubles tournaments, the Williams sisters have won 14 Grand Slam titles and on one occasion won 4 consecutively (from Wimbledon 2009 to Paris 2010), but not in the same calendar year.
There's no shortage of achievement at the Olympics either: they've captured a total of four gold medals each, including three together in women's doubles and one each in singles. Venus is also the tennis player, including men, with the most Olympic medals won, five.
Between them, they also kindled an intense rivalry. In fact, they have met 31 times, of which 9 times in a Grand Slam final. They are, therefore, the second pair who have met more times in the women's singles finals behind Chris Evert-Martina Navrátilová, who have met 14 times. Serena finished ahead in number of matches won (19-12).
