Venus Williams Wimbledon first round play came off without a hitch yesterday, as she beat Stefanie Voegele, 6-3, 6-2 to advance to the next round. See photos and video of Venus Williams here.
Venus Williams, Wimbledon 2008 champion, had a shaky start, slipping on the grass and double faulting, but the Venus that we know regained her composure and defeated Stefanie Voegele of Switzerland, 6-3, 6-2.
“Having won this title multiple times, you get that sense of what it takes to win. And I definitely have a good grip on that — what it takes to win this title.”
Williams is seeded third and going after a three-peat. If she succeeds, this will be her sixth Wimbledon title, which would tie Billie Jean King’s six Wimbledon wins and one behind Steffi Graf.
Venus will now face Kateryna Bondarenko, who beat out Anastasija Sevastova on Tuesday. I, for one, am hoping for another Williams sister showdown in the Wimbledon final! What do you think readers?
