It sucks to be Venus Williams right now.

On Saturday, the tennis all-star lost the Wimbledon title to Garbine Muguruza amid an emotional few weeks. As we previously reported, the top ranked athlete was involved in a nasty car accident last month where a man died because of the incident. Oof.

While footage of the crash has cleared Williams' name, it hasn't stopped the deceased's family from looking into a wrongful death lawsuit. We have a feeling this drama played a part in Venus' shocking loss during the Wimbledon final.

In fact, the 37-year-old started out strong as the celebrated American athlete was bidding to become the oldest woman in the Open era to nab a Grand Slam title. Sadly, Williams' goal was derailed by Muguruza as she locked in

Filed under: Legal MattersVenus Williams

It seemed Venus Williams had gone from at fault to in the clear after video of her fatal car accident had shown she had not illegally entered the intersection.

But the estate of the late Jerome Barson is not giving up its wrongful death lawsuit just yet.

According to TMZ, lawyers have now filed a request for all of the tennis star's phone records to double check she wasn't on her cell just before or during the accident.

They have also asked for copies of any prescriptions for drugs Venus may have taken in the 72 hours before.

Police have already said Venus wasn't distracted by her phone and that drugs and alcohol played no part in the accident. Are the attorneys just grasping at straws?

Venus Williams may not be as culpable as was initially reported.

Previously, Williams had been found at fault for the car accident on June 9 that claimed the life of 78-year-old Jerome Barson.

Video: Venus Breaks Down In Press Conference After Being Asked About Crash

But on Friday the Palm Beach Gardens Police Department issued a press release, along with security camera footage of the accident, revealing:

"After the initial investigation was conducted, new evidence into the incident was located. Based on the evidence obtained in the ongoing investigation, it has been determined the vehicle driven by Venus Williams lawfully entered the intersection on a circular green traffic signal."

Police also confirmed through that the tennis star was, as she had said, going just 5 mph when the two cars collided. In fact, they say they confirmed BOTH drivers' stories. How??

Venus Williams Breaks Down In Press Conference After Questioned About Fatal Car Crash Lawsuit

Filed under: ZportzLegal MattersSad SadVenus WilliamsTennis

no title

Venus Williams has no words.

The tennis star broke down during a Wimbledon press conference when asked about the fatal car crash she's being sued for — and it's obvious the tragedy has left her speechless.

Last week, the athlete was found at fault in a car crash that occurred last month — one that left 78-year-old Jerome Barson dead. Officials say Williams impeded oncoming traffic by bowing through a red light, and was speeding while distracted.

When asked about the incident during Monday's presser, the 37-year-old was left completely speechless mid-sentence as she tried to keep from breaking down.

While we're sure she's been advised to refrain from making public statements about the accident, as she's currently being sued for wrongful death, it's clear this situation has left Williams shaken.

Watch the clip (below) to see the athlete's emotional moment.

Venus Williams is finally speaking up about that fatal car accident — probably against the advice of legal counsel.

In case you haven't heard, the tennis star was found at fault for a car accident in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida on June 9, in which a 78-year-old man named Jerome Barson was killed.

Jerome's wife Linda Barson, who was also in the car, has reportedly already filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Venus.
