Former World No.1 Venus Williams has been out of the spotlight for nearly a year now. Her last game of professional tennis was at the Chicago Women’s Open in August last year, where she lost in the very first round.
Venus’ last Grand- Slam appearance was at the Wimbledon Grand-Slam tournament last year. However, after advancing into the second round of the prestigious grass court championship, Williams was outplayed by the Tunisian player Ons Jabeur. The 4-time Grand- Slam winner pulled out from the US Open 2021 owing to her leg injury. So far, there has been no news of Venus getting back on the courts any time soon.

“What a question! I was her elected on court coach once in the Miami Open! (for just one match) Who wouldn’t want to work with Serena Williams?”
Serena Williams is currently being coached by the French coach Patrick Mouratoglou, who is also has engaged for a short-period to coach the Romanian player Simona Halep.
