Serena Williams defeated her older sister Venus at Wimbledon, but that had no affect on their strong sibling bond. Venus came to her sister’s defense in a recent interview with People, where she opened up about her sister’s heart and offered advice to anyone who may be struggling with body-image issues.
“From the very beginning she has inspired me – this was a long time ago, before she won the majors – her heart on the court and her ability to perform under the most pressure … nothing has changed,” Venus told PEOPLE during a Class Pass and Jamba Juice event at TITLE Boxing Club in N.Y.C. “It’s a special quality that not a lot of people have.”
“No matter who you are, the grass is never greener on the other side,” she added. “You just have to find a way to enjoy that grass.”
Spoken like a true champ!
