The Serena and Venus Throwback You'll Love

The Serena and Venus Throwback You'll Love

Tennis champs and sisters Venus and Serena Williams can add another skill set to their resumes: #tbt masters!

Venus Williams' activewear brand, EleVen, posted a fun throwback Thursday post last week showing the duo holding trophies from the 1999 Lipton Championship.

 

Lol love my sister @venuswilliams more than anyone can imagine. Tbt #StrongIsBeautiful #atas

Serena quickly regrammed adding the sweet caption, "love my sister @venuswilliams more than anyone can imagine." And we're also big fans of her hashtag of choice, #StrongIsBeautiful.

Top-ranked Serena also spoke the New York Magazine this week leading up to the U.S. Open. "I didn't think it would last this long," Serena told the mag, referring to her 16-year career, which isn't slowing down anytime soon.

She prepares to headline the New York tournament, where she's looking to win all four majors in the same calendar year — which hasn't been done since Steffi Graf achieved the feat more than two decades ago.

Gotta love girl power, then and now!
