Venus Williams On Competing in US Open Without Serena: 'It's A Completely Different Experience for Both Us'

For the first time since 2010, Venus Williams is competing at the U.S. Open without her record-setting sister Serena, who is currently pregnant with her first child with fiance Alexis Ohanian.

“It’s definitely a different experience, especially for she and I, because we spent our whole lives focused, so focused on work,” the 37-year-old tennis pro expressed (via New York Post) after her first-round U.S Open clash on Monday (August 28) in Arthur Ashe Stadium with Viktoria Kuzmova.

“So when you have an experience that is not work, it’s pretty intense. That’s all we do, is work and train and focus. It’s a completely different experience for both us,” Venus added. “It’s been a beautiful 20 years. I love this game — that’s why I’m still here. I don’t know if there will be 20 more but I’m going to enjoy this year.”

Venus concluded her first day with a 6-3, 3-6, 6-2 win over Viktoria.

With just days left to go before the start of the U.S. Open, Rafael Nadal and Venus Williams flash a smile together while attending the 2017 Lotte New York Palace Invitational at Lotte New York Palace on Thursday (August 24) in New York City.

The 30-year-old tennis pro hit the court opposite Venus, 37, for a fun-spirited round of Badminton, where Venus was crowned the winner.

“This is the best warm-up you can possibly do for the U.S. Open,” Venus expressed at the event (via Vogue). “Last year we played virtual tennis here, and I was able to hone my mental game. Today, with the badminton, it’s a little eccentric, but it’s going to make sure I improvise on the court.”

“Honestly, the U.S. Open is around the corner and that’s my main focus,” Venus added about her state of mind. “With the end of the season around the corner, too, I want to finish strong. Who doesn’t want to win? It’s very addictive. My whole goal is to win every match I play.”
