Venus Williams making a come back

Venus Williams will again be taking part in the ASB Classic Tennis tournament down under. She was there this year as well and she had a great time as she managed to get to the title round.

The veteran American could not lift the trophy though as she was beaten at the hands of the Serbia international Ana Ivanovic.

Earlier today, in a press conference, Mr. Karl Budge, the head of the organizing committee of the event, made the announcement of Venus signing up again.

Speaking there, Budge said, “We don’t generally have great players coming and participating in this tournament even for once and here we have one coming for the second consecutive time.”

“We are very grateful to Venus for this. She liked the tournament last year, the atmosphere, the facilities everything and that’s why she has decided to be back. It’s really exciting for us as well for the fans here in New Zealand.”

Venus has had a pretty good 2014. She has been in the finals a few times and she even beat her younger sister and the second ranked player in the world Serena Williams in Canada. She has got herself back into the top 20 in the world rankings.

She has silverware to her name as well in the season. She avenged that Auckland loss versus Ivanovic in the United Arab Emirates where she became the winner of Dubai Duty Free tennis Championships by defeating the Serb in the final to take her singles’ trophy count to 45.

The previous season, Venus had got herself going in the Auckland tournament only. In 2015 too, she would like to have a good run there and start things with a flourish. Her aim would definitely be to get close to top 10 by the end of next year.
