Venus Williams
40-Year-Old
Plays through injuries in loss
February 9, 2021
Williams played through left knee and right ankle injuries during her 6-1, 6-0 loss to Sara Errani in Round 2 of the Australian Open on Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
Most players would have withdrawn mid-match but the 40-year-old hobbled around the court and took the loss admirably. Her next event won't likely be until March as it is, so she'll have considerable time to recover from these injuries without missing any time off the court.
