Serena Wins Move On Quarter Finals

Venus was knocked out of Olympics singles tournament by Germany's Angelique Kerber: 7-6 (7-5), 7-6 (7-5) in the round of 16.

Serena nailed 12 aces and destroyed No. 13-seeded Vera Zvonareva to win 6-1, 6-0 and reached the Olympic quarterfinals!

We feel bad for Venus, but are also happy for Serena!

If Venus wants a medal, though — she still has a chance in the doubles category with her sister.

Oh, and Roger Federer has reached the quarterfinals by beating Denis Istomin of Uzbekistan 7-5, 6-3.

USA! USA! USA!

Venus Williams Joins Serena — Both Sisters Out Of French Open

Filed under: Serena WilliamsSad SadVenus WilliamsTennis

Venus Out 2012

The 2012 French Open has not been kind to the Williams sisters, as now Venus has joined Serena in getting booted from the competition early on!

And get this: It's just the fifth time in 43 Grand Slam tournaments that neither Williams sister reached the quarterfinals.

So this is a rare thing to have happened!

Venus lost 6-2, 6-3 to No. 3 Agniezska Radwansa of Poland in the second round, just one day after Serena lost to Virginie Razzano of France.

This sucks, but we're sure you guys aren't done yet — so there's always the next tournament!

Keep your heads up!

Venus Williams Vows To Rise Again After Illness!

Filed under: Venus WilliamsHealthTennis

Venus Coming Back

What would tennis be without her??

It's true! Venus Williams has vowed to rise again after her illness!

She has been diagnosed with an incurable illness called Sjogren's syndrome, which affects energy levels and causes pain in the joints.

Here's what she said:

"I just didn't feel well before my second-round match, to the point where I couldn't play. At the beginning of the tournament, I wasn't sure how far I would get or what I would do, I was kind of living on a hope and a dream.When you don't feel well and things are taken away from you, it's hard to stay positive. But, for me, it is not an option to get negative or to feel sorry for myself. It's easy to say, 'I've done enough' — or it would be easy to go on a permanent vacation. But I need to look back and know that I gave everything. I know I still have so much more. Before I was sick I was on top of the world in singles and doubles. So that's my goal, to return to that.

"I'm looking forward to coming back. Sjogren's syndrome definitely changed my life, it changed everything. It changed how I eat, it changed my whole life."

We are so impressed by her tenacity. Especially with something that incurable.

So how will she do it?

She plans to manage it like this:

"I don't think the road will be perfect, but I think I can get it as close to perfect as possible. My hope is to be symptom-free one day. I work with my doctors on that, but also I work on my diet, which I've found has been huge. With Sjogren's you deal with a lot of fatigue and joint pain and inflammation. It's because of the things I'm eating. I've started eating raw, vegan, unprocessed foods, doing lots of juicing, I juice twice a day. I drink wheatgrass. For me, it's worth doing everything I can to get back to what I love doing."

Fab!

The power of diet is incredible, as long as you're getting everything you need!

We'd love to see you back in action, Venus! Good luck!
