For venus williamsThere is no greater cheerleader than family.
Since she turned professional at the age of 14, the tennis player had the support of her parents and her younger sister. Serena Williams. And as Serena leaves the game they both love, Venus is filled with gratitude for an unbreakable bond.
“She has been my role model,” Venus shared exclusively with E! News. “No one knows more what I’m going through than her. She’s someone who understands me without even saying a word. I know it’s unusual to have a brother in sports, but it’s the only experience I know to be able to.” I can’t imagine not having one.”
Added Venus: “From what I understand, 99 percent of people do it on their own, but I never had to.”
Whether practicing together as children or traveling the world to participate in tournaments as adults, Venus and Serena have shared countless experiences together. Choosing just one favorite can be impossible.
