Tennis greats Venus Williams & Petra Kvitova served up an entertainer at the 2014 Wimbledon which saw veteran Williams get knocked out of the competition.
2011 champion Kvitova edged it 5-7 7-6(2) 7-5, making sure 34-year old Venus would wait till next year before another attempt to regain the Wimbledon title she won last in 2008.
“The battle is always a little more enjoyable when you win,” Williams, playing her 63rd grand slam, told reporters.
“When you lose, there’s so much more to learn from the situation. I think, just for me to be able to play that well having really not played hardly any matches is good. I think I’ll just keep improving.
“People have been trying to retire me since I was like 25. For some reason in tennis we always do that to our players. It’s weird,” she added.
