The photos were released just after Tomas‘ big win in the first round of Wimbledon today. Here is what the tennis stars had to share with the mag:
Venus on her battle with Sjogren’s syndrome: “At my worst point, I wasn’t able to play tennis at all. Just the whole quality of my life was compromised. You are so tired it hurts. You have to accept that you’re never going to be 100%.”
Tomas on the grass at Wimbledon: “The grass is a very big challenge for me. There are these low bounces and different movements, which is very difficult especially for my height and weight. I start to feel it in the lower back and the lower hamstring.”
