Venus Williams has won five Wimbledon and two U.S. Open Championships on her way to becoming the third-ranked women’s tennis player in the world. She’s also established a clothing line and an interior design business.
The focus, discipline, drive and confidence that leads to success on the court provide the skills required to win off the court, Williams said at a July 7 NPC Luncheon, where she encouraged young people to participate in athletics.
“Sport will teach you how to compete; how to fight back; how to win,” Williams said. “Sports is the ultimate way to build confidence.”
