In 2016, Venus Williams had set the next Olympics as her long-term goal, and she has not changed her mind about meeting this goal. 'I have no plans of stopping anytime soon,' the world no.

5 told Entreprenaur. 'It seems somehow that 2020 Tokyo is on the horizon. Isn’t that wild? I’m trying to stick around for that.' Venus has a busy off-court life: she runs her company EleVen and interior design firm V-Starr, and is also studying to get a degree in design.

'Lately, I’ve been trying to figure out how to get the best out of it without going crazy. That’s how your grades drop. I finally learned what school was about. It’s about getting the best out of it and using your time wisely.
