We Got Your Back Venus!

The US Open kicked off on Monday, August 26th and ended short for Venus Williams. The 33 year old star went head on with an old friend, Zheng Jia from China, made sure she left America as a winner. Williams went against Zheng nearly 10 years ago, but this time Venus played with a back injury from earlier this summer. Nothing stopped Venus from playing the game she loves the most. With a match lasting over 3 hours, Williams lost her match in New York. She says “”I definitely wish that I was playing the third round, but it’s not (meant) to be for me this year,” Williams said. “I tried. Really, she played well. She just went for every shot. Unfortunately I didn’t play consistently enough.” Fans continue to cheer on Venus and remind her that no matter what happens: “We got your back!”
