Venus Williams, like every other professional tennis player, will not compete at Wimbledon this year as the coronavirus pandemic has cancelled the annual championship event for the first time since World War II.
That said, it’s giving Williams time to reflect on what she considers her biggest accomplishment in tennis.
Also during the COVID-19 outbreak, Williams has been using her recurring Instagram Live #CoachVenus workouts to raise money for the Equal Justice Initiative.

“I’m passionate about creating opportunities for Black youth at a grassroots level, especially with tennis and education,” Williams explained.
Williams says her mother, Oracene Price, was a main inspiration for her work off the tennis court.
