Venus Williams has not played a match since the US Open after picking up a horror knee injury.
Venus Williams is plotting another comeback after suffering a horror fall at Wimbledon last year.
The 43-year-old revealed that sister Serena doesn’t want her to retire as she outlined her plan to return to competition on home soil in March.
The elder Williams sister hasn’t played a match since August, when she crashed out in the first round of the US Open.
She rushed back after picking up a knee injury at Wimbledon but has been recovering ever since and is now set to compete in Indian Wells and Miami.
While the seven-time Grand Slam champion is still hungry to compete, she admitted that she had to have an “honest conversation” with herself after going out 6-1 6-1 to Greet Minnen in Flushing Meadows.
That was her worst loss at her home Grand Slam tournament.
But it was Serena who played a big part in her decision to keep playing. The 23-time Major winner ended her own career at the US Open in 2022.
“One of my big goals is to play United States, to play in the Miami Open and at Indian Wells,” Venus said in a new video. “I have not played there since 2019 due to injuries. It’s a long time… It’s a lot of years not to play at home.
