Venus Williams Advances To Wimbledon Finals
Venus Williams isn’t letting her legal woes distract her from the mission at hand. Compton’s serve-crushing tennis baller is set to play in the 2017 Wimbledon finals after defeating Johanna Konta in the semis according to BBC Sports.
Unlike some of Serena’s competitors (looking at you shady azz Maria Sharapova), Johanna bowed down gracefully and kissed Venus’ ring for wearing that azz out on the court:
“It was very difficult for me to get a good foothold in the match,” she said.
“The few opportunities that I did get, she did incredibly well to take them away from me.
“I don’t think I did too much wrong out there. I think it was all credit to her.”
As we’ve reported, Venus was involved in a fatal car accident in Florida that resulted in an elderly man’s death. The police initially stated that the accident and subsequent fatality was Venus’ fault, but she was recently cleared of any wrongdoing.
Something as traumatic as potentially causing a death could have EASILY thrown Venus off her game, but here she is, ready to take home victory with one more match.
We’ll be tuned in, will you?
