Venus Williams Leads Area Youth Clinic

Wednesday, July 9, 2008

Venus Williams could be reveling in the fact that she just won her fifth Wimbledon title - and seventh Grand Slam championship.

But tonight, her focus is on future tennis stars in Delaware who are inspired by her achievements.

Just being able to watch Venus Williams play is a treat for many of the local kids gathered here.

But to have some one-on-one time with the newly-crowned Wimbledon champ is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

"I'm just happy to be here, to be able to hit with her. It's really exciting," said 17-year old Serena Walker.

The kids were part of a youth tennis clinic at the duPont Country Club led by Venus Williams.
