Go ahead and admit it: you were sleeping on Venus Williams. You can be forgiven for that; Serena is out here being ridiculous (in a good way) all the time, showing up to people’s weddings in leopard swimsuits, causing beefs between Common and Drake, clicking on line judges, and just generally being bad ( once again, in a very good way). But while you were being awed by Serena’s forehand smash as well as her…other assets, you may have forgotten that Venus has four Olympic Gold medals, has been ranked 1st in the world in tennis on three separate occasions, and has seven Grand Slam titles including Wimbledon five times. All this, despite the fact that she was diagnosed with Sjögren’s syndrome and has struggled with fatigue for years. Yet, it is the things that this body can do that propelled her from Compton to center court. Venus’ work on grass and clay has always made Compton stand up; but these pictures will make sure everybody else does as well.
