Former World No. 1 and seven time Grand Slam singles champion Venus Williams says she is missing her sisters during the current quarantine period. Williams posted a message on her Instagram account in which she said, "Missing my sisters.
It’s only a day late, but wishing you #nationalsiblingday @serenawilliams @lyndrea_imani @ladyisha01" Besides Serena Williams, Venus also has two half-sisters Lyndrea, and Isha Price, who have often been seen in the stands during their tennis matches.
Siblings Day is celebrated on April 10 in the United States and Canada on April 10.
Venus has been ranked world No.
