Venus talks about tough Wimbledon loss

Venus Williams now has a YouTube Channel, where she provides links (get her white bustier-inspired snappy dress!) to her EleVen clothing line.

But in the second episode, she gers personal, talking about the tough loss to Coco Gauff at Wimbledon this year.


Williams draws parallels to her first appearance at Wimbledon in 1997, when was ranked No. 59 and she also lost in the first round (to Magdalena Grzybowska of Poland).

“My destiny was not to choke and fall down. My destiny was to rise,” Williams said of that defeat. 

Three years later, she won it.
