Today is a big day for Venus Williams.
The 37-year-old tennis star beat Jelena Ostapenko 6-3, 7-5 at Wimbledon’s quarterfinals on Centre Court today, becoming the oldest women’s semifinalist since Martina Navratilova 23 years ago. This victory means that Williams will be headed to her 10th semifinal at Wimbledon. It’s worth noting that 20-year-old Jelena Ostapenko of Latvia was only a few weeks old when Williams made her Wimbledon debut in 1997. Ostapenko won the French Open in Paris last month.
Williams — who is two years older than pregnant sister Serena Williams — wore an ensemble from her EleVen by Venus Williams line for the match. She completed the look with Nike tennis shoes and some daring black eye makeup.
The five-time Wimbledon champion will face the winner of a match between Simona Halep and Johanna Konta.
