Venus chases Serena from Wimbledon



London — Venus Williams also bowed from the single on Wednesday the day after his sister Serena was injured in the first round and endured a tragic Wimbledon exit.

Venus, who entered the 90th Grand Slam tournament at the age of 41, pushed Tunisia’s 21-seeded Ons Jabeur hard on the opening set, but eventually lost 7–5 6–0.

It’s the first time Serena has failed to reach the third round at Wimbledon since her debut in the tournament in 1998.

Seven-time Wimbledon champion Serena was forced to resign against Ariya Sandra Sasnovich on the center court after slipping on the first set and injuring her leg, winning her record 24th Grand Slam title. Another attempt has ended.

Venus said it was difficult to see the tearful exit of her brother the day before.

“I could never see it. Too many. I couldn’t see it. When all your faculties were robbed, you worked hard and earned, and suddenly life happened, it was I know exactly how it feels, “she said.

When asked how Serena was, she said: That’s terrible. the worst. “

Venus continues to be interested in the tournament as he plays mixed doubles with Nick Kyrgios.
