Venus Williams

My second post to this blog will be on Venus Williams. Venus and her sister Serena are two of the most famous and highest paid female athletes. Venus has won 7 grand slam titles and 5 of them at Wimbledon. Venus is known as one of the best grass court players and one of the all time best players. Venus is still on the Women's Tour which she first arrived in 1994. She is of 35 years of age and was born in Lynwood, California. Venus has won 48 titles on the WTA Tour and is second to only her sister at most won titles. Venus nows suffers from an autoimmune disease that is holding her back. However, she is still playing and her legacy lives on.

Caroline Wozniacki

Caroline Wozniacki is a female professional tennis player. Caroline is a Danish native and continues to play for Denmark. She once held the top ranked position on the tour for a total of 67 weeks. This was the first time a Scandinavian women held this spot. Caroline weighs in at 128 pounds and 5' 10" tall. She is coached by her dad Piotr. Many people have criticized having her dad as her coach saying that he holds her game back. Caroline has not won a grand slam title yet but was the runner up at the 2009 and 2014 U.S. Opens. She has made a little over $20,000,000 in prize money. Wozniacki plays a very defensive game that works because of her awesome athleticism and agility.
