After her disappointing first-round exit at Wimbledon, Venus Williams took a break in Italy, for which she received a humorous message from her sister Serena Williams. Venus is in Puglia, in the country's Southern Italy. She shared beautiful glimpses of her lovely vacation on social media "This is it a caption," she posted on Instagram.
Her sister Serena, evidently envious of Venus' vacation, posted a funny reply: "Yea yea yea keep rubbing it in my face lol!"
Venus Williams at Wimbledon 2023
Venus Williams has expressed her frustration after her loss to Elina Svitolina in the first round of the Championships.
The American player immediately got the break, but an unfortunate slip gave her a strong knee pain. The problem didn't improve as the minutes went by and, only an immense willpower pushed Williams to continue until the end.
Venus told in the press conference: "I am not what happened. I will have to check. I was in pain and it was difficult to concentrate on the game. The grass is always slippery. It was just bad luck. I started perfectly, then I was killed by the grass.
I felt in great shape, but that's the sport. Now I have to figure out what my next plans are.cI'm a bit in shock right now. I just can't believe this happened. It's bizarre. I do not know. I still have to elaborate. I've had so many injuries, so it's not easy to process what happened.
This is not what I want for myself. I didn't do anything wrong, I just tried to hit the ball. Emotionally it's really hard. I never thought of retiring before the end: I tried to fight and looked for another way to win. I think no woman should worry about getting paid as much as men.
I am very happy that no woman has to worry about this in the Grand Slams and she can only think about playing tennis. I got scared because she screamed. I immediately thought it was a very serious injury. She fought like a champion to the end."
