Venus Williams has revealed a devastating setback, confirming that she has sustained a hamstring injury that will keep her out of the tennis court for the foreseeable future.
The injury, which happened at the start of the year in Auckland, ruled her out of the Australian Open and left fans of the seven-time Grand Slam champion wondering about the extent of her injury.
In a recent YouTube video, Williams opened up about her injury, saying she was “super overwhelmed” and had to go back to rehab. Despite the slow start, Williams remains upbeat about her recovery and is taking a step-by-step approach to her rehabilitation.
The 42-year-old’s absence will be a major disappointment for tennis fans, who were looking forward to her performance following the retirement of her younger sister Serena.

Venus had started the year on a positive note, winning her opening WTA match in Auckland, and there was a sense of optimism about what she could achieve as a veteran of the tour.
While this injury has punctured much of that early-season optimism, Venus remains hopeful about her return to the court. Fans of the former World No. 1 can only hope that her recovery is swift and she is back in action soon.
