Venus Ebone Starr Williams Price (Lynwood, California, United States, June 17, 1980) is an American professional tennis player. She is the older sister of another tennis player, Serena Williams (born in 1981), who has eight Olympic medals between them.

Venus won 49 individual WTA tournaments, including seven individual Grand Slam tournaments (five at Wimbledon, two at the US Open), one WTA Tour Championships and nine Tier 1 tournaments. He won 14 Grand Slam titles and two WTA Tier 1 titles, all of them with his sister Serena. He also achieved four gold medals at the Olympic Games.

On February 25, 2002, she became the first African-American player to be ranked No. 1 in the WTA ranking, held in that position for 11 weeks in three periods.

Venus Williams’s Biography

When the Williams sisters (there are five in all) were girls, they moved to Compton, California. His father Richard used to take his five daughters to the tennis courts with the hope that one day, at least one of them could achieve sports glory and be able to move to a better place.

Early on Venus became one of the best young players in California, and along with her sister Serena shared the head of series as the best young players in California for long periods.

Venus became a professional player in the 1990s and had a very lucrative career. He has won many important championships, including three gold medals in Olympic Games (singles and doubles in Sydney 2000, doubles in Beijing 2008), the Fed Cup, the French Open in 1999 in women’s doubles, (with his sister Serena as couple), the Oklahoma City Tournament, the Italian Open, the Hamburg Open, the Wimbledon Championship five times and the United States Open twice.

Another feat of Venus and undoubtedly for tennis history, was to have become the first black woman to reach the top of the WTA world ranking, a fact she got in February 2002 (however, the tennis player Althea Gibson and the tennis player Kaylania Stameyia were considered the best in the world in the period before the ranking). To this should be added the 1-2 they did with Serena in that list, being the first sisters to achieve such a feat, although his sister would steal prominence, defeating him in four consecutive grand slam finals (Roland Garros, Wimbledon and US Open 2002 and Australia 2003), which once again would ratify the undeniable dominance that the other Williams sisters had over the other players; domain that is patent in moments of lucidity in the game of the Americans, who on several occasions have surprised with unexpected reappearances.

When Venus and Serena won the 1999 French Open in women’s doubles, they became the first sisters to win the title in the 20th century.

In 2003, Venus played the final at Wimbledon despite suffering from abdominal discomfort. He lost to his sister Serena, 6-4, 4-6, 2-6.

There is only one tragic event in its history. The eldest sister, Yutende Price, was killed by gunfire in the Compton area on the morning of September 14, 2003; This fact, linked to the divorce of his parents, led him to be somewhat distanced from the courts and be harshly criticized by sports specialists who thought he was in the twilight of his career. Murdered the older sister of Serena and Venus Williams

2004 was a year that almost went unnoticed by this athlete, but her story would not stop there. In 2005, away from all favoritism and having won just one tournament so far this year, she went to the prestigious Wimbledon tournament, which she had managed twice. Starting as number 14 seed of the tournament, silently and with good pace, he reached the final, but not before overwhelmingly defeating the defending champion and then number two in the world, the Russian Maria Sharapova, in only two partial, the last of which reflected a clear 6-1. The final faced her against one of her great opponents in the tracks: her compatriot Lindsay Davenport, number one of that time, to whom she won in three sets, winning a match that she had practically lost when raising point for party. She became the player in the entire history of the tournament with less qualification that managed to raise the Wimbledon trophy, to which would be added the fact that it was the longest female final in the history of the prestigious tournament, as the confrontation lasted two hours and forty-five minutes of play.

2006 was not a very productive year for the older Williams. He fell in the first round of the Australian Open and in the quarterfinals of Roland Garros, in addition, he could not successfully defend the crown obtained on London grass the previous year (thus ending the hegemony of the Williams sisters in Wimbledon, as Venus had arrived at the final in 2000 and 2001 – winning -, 2002 and 2003 – losing with his sister Serena – and 2005 – winning -, meanwhile Serena did the same in the years 2002, 2003 and 2004 – this being the only year that until then another surname other than Williams, bathed in glory-) and not winning any tournament that season.

In 2007, in her first appearance of the year, she was crowned champion of the Memphis tournament. Venus, would get a new title after almost two years, since until then his last crown was the tray that accredits the Wimbledon champion, in 2005. In the final he defeated the Israeli ascendant Shahar Peer, who in Australia had given signs of being a strong rival to beat by the experienced players of the circuit. Venus scored a stunning double 6-1 reflected it. In the Wimbledon final of that year, he defeated Bartoli, winning his fourth tournament in the English Open.

In 2008, he repeats the Wimbledon crown, defending it against his sister Serena. After a slow start, Venus manages to take hold and win the game in two sets. After several years of injuries and illnesses, as of August 2011, it ranks number 36 in the world ranking.

On September 1, 2011, she announced her retirement from the US Open when she had to face German Sabine Lisicki in the second round due to the recent diagnosis of Sjögren’s Syndrome.

In 2015 he won his 46th title in Auckland, winning the final to Caroline Wozniacki. In the Australian Open he falls in the quarterfinals against Madison Keys. In Roland Garros it falls surprisingly before Sloane Stephens in first round by 7-6, 6-1. In Wimbledon, he falls to his sister Serena Williams in the fourth round by sets of 6-4, 6-3 and in the US Open he lost in the quarterfinals again to his sister Serena Williams by partial 3-6,6-1,2-6 . In 2017, he won the Australian Open final against his sister Serena Williams 6-4, 6-4 and against Garbiñe Muguruza in the Wimbledon final after 7-5 and 6-0.
