Tennis legends Serena Williams and her older sister Venus have both made significant strides during the US OPEN.
On Wednesday, Serena defeated Kiki Bertens of the Netherlands. It was a close one, but ‘Rena pulle dit out as always. All eyes are clearly on Serena as she’s already won the Australian Open, French Open and Wimbledon, now, she’s only five matches away from becoming the first player since Steffi Graf to complete the calendar-year grand slam.
Earlier yesterday, Venus battled against Irina Falconi of the USA…and she took the victory. But it also wasn’t easy. During a press conference following the victory, Venus was open with the NY Times about her struggles, calling the match “A combination of errors.” Then she complimented Irina saying, “I was really impressed with those drop shot returns off her serve. It was just insane. Just great hands.”
