Born on June 17, 1980, in Lynwood, California, Venus Williams was set on a trajectory towards tennis greatness from an early age. With her sister Serena Williams, the Williams family eventually became synonymous with tennis excellence. Coached by their father, Richard Williams, Venus, and her sister practiced on the cracked public courts of Compton. Despite the challenging environment, Venus excelled, turning pro at 14 and rising in the ranks soon thereafter. By the time she was 17, she had already reached her first U.S. Open final. This tennis virtuoso, known for her powerful serve and volleys, has amassed a net worth of $95 million as of 2023, according to Cosmopolitan.

Seven Grand Slam singles titles, 14 Grand Slam doubles titles, and four Olympic gold medals—Venus Williams' trophy cabinet is nothing short of a treasure trove. The game-changer for Venus came in 2000 when she became the first Black American woman to win a Grand Slam title in the Open Era. While the accolades kept coming, she also faced numerous challenges, including a diagnosis of Sjögren's syndrome, which she has managed with resilience. Her influence extends beyond the baseline; her advocacy for gender equality in sports led to Wimbledon offering equal prize money to male and female athletes in 2007.
