Venus Williams lowest seeded Wimbledon champion, again!

About two weeks ago I have written an article on women’s tennis Wimbledon history and records, and among the players mentioned was Venus Williams who was the lowest seeded Wimbledon champion, winning the title in 2005 when she was seeded 14th.

Two days ago, the American beat Marion Bartoli in the final to win her fourth trophy at the grass-court grand slam, but this time she was seeded even lower, that is 23rd.

Apparently, she was not in the race for the title on paper, but seedings and rankings do not take into consideration character and determination, something that Venus and her sister Serena have in abundance.
