TENNIS GIRL #1 - Serena and Venus Williams

Sisters power

By Jessica Marinetto

A few days ago we talked about the history of the tennis look and how a small but important piece is represented for women's empowerment.

Thus was born the desire to create an episodic format, to tell you instead, the story of tennis players, today and yesterday, who in their own way have left their mark.

Let's start with two sisters: Venus and Serena Williams.

VENUS WILLIAMS

Venus is an American tennis player, born in 1980, and is considered among the greatest tennis players of all time. She was known as "the black Venus" and we remember that she was the first African American female tennis player to occupy the top positions of the world racking. Thanks to her sporting achievements, she has become a symbol, a guide for many African American girls. A lot of dedication and sweat in the suburban fields where dad Richard taught, without being a player, to become a champion, as well as to her younger sister Serena.

THE VICTORIES

A fundamental chapter of her career are conquests. Venus rode the wave of victory by winning her first slam when she was just twenty years. Her is a destiny guided by the charisma, which led her to Wimbledon where she won five times. Then came two great satisfactions from the US Open and fourteen Slams won paired with her little sister Serena. Many satisfactions dictated by a rare talent that find expression in four Olympic gold medals.

THE LOOKS ON THE FIELD

Venus' looks on the field, strictly Reebook, prefer a dress with narrow shoulder straps or with a few hinted sleeves, so you can have freedom in the movements of the arms. The skirt is sometimes more adherent to the body and others wider so as not to be a limit in the shots. The most beloved accessories by Venus are the band to keep the hair still and the tennis hat with a strictly white visor.

SERENA WILLIAMS

Serena is an American tennis player, Venus' younger sister, and is considered the best female tennis player of all time and for this reason she is called the name of "the Queen". A real queen who managed to conquer the peaks with enormous sacrifice, despite the constant battles to defend her physical appearance, constantly criticized by the media and professionals. An example of a great force, able to overcome obstacles and achieve victories on the field and in private life with the acceptance of one's being.

THE VICTORIES

Serena is characterized by her powerful baseline shots that back in 2002 led her to the top step, becoming the number one in the world. Serena is the winner of 39 Grand Slam titles, 23 of which in singles, positioning herself behind Margaret Court who excels with 24 single titles. Let's not forget the numerous victories paired with Venus and those in mixed with Masks Mirny, up to the four Olympic gold medals, the most important one in London 2012 won in singles.

THE LOOKS ON THE FIELD

Serena, on the field, prefers to wear a two-piece onesie with a top with or without sleeves and a trouser skirt. At other times, the onesie becomes a dress with shorts and openings on the back, in tactical places where the movement must be free and flexible. The youngest of Williams is also a queen of looks, on and off the playing field. It's hard to forget the black tulle outfit, designed for her by Virgil Abloh.
