A local Australian fan was left shocked after finding out American tennis ace, Venus Williams still plays competitive tennis.

Drew Simmons, 29, had bought a day-pass for the first day of the Australian open and told Flack at his shock when discovering the elder Williams is still playing tennis. “I can’t believe it,” Simmons said. “Venus Williams must be at least forty-five by now”.  “I saw the surname, and thought it was Serena at first, but I remembered she wasn’t even playing”.

Simmons was even more surprised to discover that the elder Williams, who is 37 years old, was the fifth seed in the tournament, before losing her first round match in an upset. “thirty-seven in tennis years must be like an eighty-five-year-old in human years. Does she still wear those beads in her braids?
