Big Sister Venus Williams Refuses to Let Go of Her Sisterly Duties in a Hyped Message to Serena Williams

The year 2009 was truly special for Serena Williams. With a great start to the season, the American legend began the year with an Australian Open victory. Going on to clinch the Wimbledon Championship later on was exciting enough but what made it more special was that she defeated her big sister, Venus Williams, in the summit clash. It was Serena’s 11th Grand Slam singles title and it has brought up memories for Venus.

The younger Williams sister didn’t stop there as she went on to lift 12 more major titles in her celebrated career. As dangerous as she was considered on the court, her family was always there to cheer her on. Including sibling and fellow tennis player Venus Williams.

Venus Williams reminisces about Serena Williams’ iconic victory from 2009

The official Instagram handle of the Olympics walked down memory lane with their latest post, talking about the greatest sporting moments from 2009. From Usain Bolt’s 100m World Record, Roger Federer’s Career Grand Slam, Cristiano Ronaldo’s official debut for Real Madrid, Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol’s first NBA title together, and Japan’s second consecutive win in the World Baseball Classic, it was unforgettable. But w=so was Serena Williams.

Among them was Serena Williams’ 11th Grand Slam title victory after which she won 12 more major titles. Further, her big sister, Venus Williams shared this story on her official Instagram handle, saying, “Go sis!”

Despite the younger Williams sister’s amazing feat, her elder sibling, Venus Williams, holds a unique record against her. Their childhood coach, Rick Macci, once detailed the numbers that not many might be aware of.

Rick Macci says Venus Williams gets lost in the Serena Williams craze

Last year, the Williams sisters’ childhood coach, Rick Macci, appeared on the ES Fancast. During an interview there, he went on to talk about a rare record that Venus Williams holds over Serena Williams.

He said, “Who beat Serena more than anybody was Venus, she beat her 12 times, no one could even come close to saying that, and Serena’s played a long time, it was 19 and 12 you know so at the end of the day Venus was amazing and she kind of gets lost in the shuffle. People have no idea how good Venus Williams was. She transcended the sport.”

With their illustrious careers, the Williams sisters are one of the greatest siblings that have graced the sporting world. Having earned the respect of their opponents, their achievements will be difficult to match.
