for Venus WilliamsThere is no greater fan than family.
Since becoming a professional at the age of 14, the tennis star has relied on the support of her parents and younger sister Serena Williams. As Serena moves on from the game they both love, Venus is filled with gratitude for an unbreakable bond.
“She was my role model,” Venus shared exclusively with E! News. “No one knows more what I’ve been through then you know. 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 so I can’t imagine not having one.”
“From what I understand, 99% of people do it alone, but I haven’t had to,” Venus added.
Whether they play sports together as kids or travel the world for tournaments as adults, Venus and Serena have shared countless experiences together. It can be impossible to pick just one favourite.
