For those who don’t know it, Venus Williams is an American professional tennis player who is a former world N.1 but not retired (today world N.24). She became, in 2002, the first African American woman world N.1. Venus won 44 titles during her career whose seven Grand Slam titles : 5 Wimbledon and 2 US Open. She also won 4 Olympic gold medals in single (1) and in doubles with her sister Serena (3).

With an amazing service, Venus holds the record for the fastest serve struck by a woman in a main draw event. It was during the Zurich Open where she recorded 130 mph (210 km/h).

Venus also has a devastating backhand as you can see on this video :
