Isn’t this a fantastic photo? It reminds us of the old times and the beginnings of Venus Williams’ brilliant career. It also illustrates that an important part of becoming a champion is not to forget to take a little break from practicing and simply have fun.
Haha. As one member of the forum where I found the photo remarked, Venus’ father Richard could have said “I got this child prodigy for free because I bought 500 tennis balls”.
