Every Friday we will highlight the fitness of top players past and present. This week, be like Venus and train your mind and your body.
Venus Williams is a superb athlete and amazing tennis player. She has been a force in women's tennis for over 20 years. Incredibly, she just made it to her second grand slam final of the year at the age of 37. She has won 7 grand slam singles titles and has been ranked number 1 in the world for 11 weeks. Venus is known for her explosive serve, powerful groundstrokes, and incredible court coverage. In recent years Venus had lost much of her quickness due to her autoimmune disease and other factors. However, this year it seems that much of her quickness has returned.
Although she is not as young as she used to be Venus continues to train her mind and her body in hopes of once again lifting a grand slam trophy. For her continued excellence and, many other reasons Venus Williams is our Fitness Friday athlete.
