Venus Williams has backed her sister Serena to back up her Wimbledon win with the US Open title.
Serena backed by Venus Serena Williams has already completed a ‘Serena Slam’ as her victory at Wimbledon ensured she holds all four major titles.
The world number one heads to next month’s US Open now seeking to win all the major titles in a single year. In doing so, the 33-year-old would become the first woman since Steffi Graf in 1988, and just the fourth ever, to win all four Grand Slams in a calendar year and Venus Williams is confident she can win a fourth successive title at Flushing Meadows, although she warned it will not be easy.
“I think they’re good,” Venus said of Serena’s chances of winning the US Open at a news conference before playing for the Washington Kastles in World TeamTennis. “But it’s not just like she went out there and people gave her the matches (at Wimbledon) – she earned it. She earned every single match, every single point, so I’m sure that it won’t be easy to win the Open.”
