Serena Williams is ranked the number one tennis player in the world, but in order to get another Grand Slam title, she must win against her older sister Venus Williams in a US Open quarterfinals match on Tuesday.
Venus, 35, may not be in the Top 10 rankings currently, but she does have a Grand Slam legacy of several wins, along with her exceptional talent as a tennis player. If Serena, 33, who holds 21 Grand Slam titles, wins against her older sister and takes the US Open victory, she’ll also be the first player since 1988 to win all four Opens in one year.
Serena doesn’t expect the match against her sister to be an easy feat. She should know — ESPN noted that they’ve played one another 26 times throughout their professional careers.
“It’s like playing a mirror,” said Serena Williams, according to ABC News.
Regardless of having to take on roles as opponents, the sisters have always been very supportive of one another. In their previous face-offs, Serena won 15 times and Venus 11.
We wish them both the best of luck.
