Recently-recrowned Wimbledon queen Venus Williams appears in the August issue of Shape magazine where she reveals that her sister Serena is her biggest inspiration and also says that practice is the key to success.
Here’s what Venus said about Serena’s influence:
“Without her, I couldn’t have achieved anything. She’s helped me believe in myself.” Serena loves to give Venus little sayings to remember, such as, ‘If you take your opportunities, more opportunities will come.’ “That got me through one final at Wimbledon,” recalls Venus.
The five-time Wimbledon champion believes that practice is the pillar of confidence and says: “You have to practice to develop your talents and learn to enjoy putting the effort in.”
