Venus Williams achieved another huge on-court feat today at the Australian Open, becoming the oldest woman to reach the semifinals of the tournament.
The tennis champ wore a dress from her Eleven collection and white Nike kicks to knock out Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova on Tuesday at Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, Australia.
After the match, reporters asked Williams if she thought about retiring sometime soon. “I feel like I have a lot of great tennis in me,” she responded. “Any time you feel that way, you continue.”
As Venus Williams moves on, younger sister Serena Williams, 35, will battle it out in her quarterfinal match Wednesday. The younger Williams is marching toward her own record — the most Grand Slam wins. Last year, Serena won Wimbledon to tie Steffi Graf’s 22 victories.
If the Williams sisters continue their winning streaks, they could face each other in the Australian Open final this weekend. Meanwhile, another veteran player, Roger Federer, is also staging a bit of a comeback this week. The 35-year-old won his quarterfinals match on Tuesday. He missed the U.S. Open last September to recover from an injury.
