Venus Williams (U.S.)

Age: 23



Lives:
Palm Beach Gardens, Florida



Plays:
Right-handed, double-handed backhand



Grand Slam titles:
Four (Wimbledon 2000, 2001; U.S. Open 2000, 2001)

Record at the French Open: 2003-fourth round, 2002-runner-up, 2001-first round, 2000-quarter-final, 1999-fourth round, 1998-quarter-final, 1997-second round
