two-time champion Venus Williams practices at the US Open grounds

Tennis - Former World No. 1 Venus Williams, of the United States, will be competing in the US Open in New York for the 22nd time this season. Williams, who turned 40 years old in June, is a former two-time winner at the US Open event and has been practicing on the US Open grounds ahead of the Western & Southern Open event.

After playing the WTA event in Lexington where she defeated Victoria Azarenka before going down to Serena Williams, she will compete in the Western & Southern Open and then the US Open. The US Open has been a good hunting ground for the older Williams - she reached the final in her first appearance at the tournament in 1997 and then won two titles in 2000 and 2001.

She also reached the finals in 2002 and has been to the semi-finals on five further occasions. Venus Williams is currently ranked No. 65 in the WTA world rankings.
