Yesterday the amazing Venus Williams blew away her opponent at the world famous Wimbledon tennis tournament. She’ll play for her sixth title on Saturday.
Venus, who at 37 is very old for an athlete, may make history by becoming the oldest woman ever to win Wimbledon. The previous record holder was our former Fort Worth resident Martina Navratilova who was also 37 when she reached the finals in 1994.
And the first American man to play in the semifinals since 2009, Sam Querrey, is playing now, so we have our strongest American showing in London in many years.
Venus has excelled despite just being sued when she was involved in a car wreck last month in Florida.
The tennis star was driving slowly through a light when her SUV was T-boned by a car driven by a 68-year-old woman who was seriously injured. Her 78-year-old husband tragically died several weeks later.
The family has filed a lawsuit against Venus for wrongful death and personal injury damages.
The accident report initially blamed Venus for running the light. But the police department now says it doesn’t know which driver was at fault. What made it reverse its position?
