“I felt like I played. That pretty much sums it up,” Where unenthusiastic words from Venus Williams as she fell on Wednesday to 22-year-old Agnieszka Radwanska.
No one likes to dwell on being defeated, but the loss may have been all the more bitter because of William’s early exit from the French Open coinciding with her sister Serena.
This Grand Slam tournament is the first in which one of the sisters has not reached the third round. Although faced with what can only be seen as an upset, Venus seems to be content to rest on at least her sister’s laurels.
“I think if she could have gotten through that match, it would have been, this tournament, a lot different for her.” Venus Williams said. “Thankfully, she has like twenty-something majors to keep her warm at night. I think she’ll be fine.”
