In recent weeks, the Australia Open has been taking place, one of the great tennis events in which the best female and male players in the sport compete. Venus Williams, one of the most anticipated competitors, clarified on social media that due to an injury she suffered at the New Zealand tournament, she will no longer participate in the competition.
The invitation for Venus Williams to participate in the Australia Open was made in December last year, surprising her fans. In celebration, the athlete had made a publication stating how excited she was about the tournament, “the Australian community has always supported me wholeheartedly. It will be an honor to play for the fans again.”
For the first time in 20 years, Venus and Serena Williams lost the Australian Open last year. The famous duo surprised everyone when they participated in several tournaments, winning the women’s title four times in 2001, 2003, 2009 and 2010.
