Venus Williams and Serena Williams have left an unmatched legacy of priceless courtside memories.

Revealing a tapestry of emotions woven from triumph, and resilience, the elder Williams’ post has once again grabbed the headlines of the tennis world.

Consolidating their victories from the Sydney Games in 2000, the Beijing Olympics in 2008, and the 2012 Summer Olympics in London the Williams sisters solidified their reputation as the most formidable team in the history of Olympic tennis. The memory is made much more memorable because the legendary sister duo is still the only team to have accomplished this.

Venus Williams looks back at the London Olympics days
The seven-time Grand Slam champion recently took to her Instagram account to share a tribute post that was shared by the official account of the Olympics. Along with that, she wrote, “What a match! That backhand crossing volley: is my least fave shot in doubles. But I had to help the team. So I did it. I always say the Olympic spirit moved me! And of course playing with the best server.”

Not only did the elder Williams sister recall the memory even 14 years after the incident, but she also talked about how she pulled the backhand crossing volley most amazingly just to succeed in the game at that time. Subsequently, she also tagged the 23-time Grand Slam champion and called her the “best server.”

However, Venus Williams and Serena Williams not only achieved incredible success in the doubles division but also made a lasting impression in the 2012 Olympic singles competition. Specifically, the 42-year-old tennis legend came into the London Games as the clear front-runner for the gold medal. Recently, having won her sixth Wimbledon championship, which speaks much about her skill on grass courts, Serena was primed to take her supremacy to the Olympic arena.

Serena Williams even created history as an individual tennis player
According to the Tennis Channel, after the amazing achievement, she said, “I never expected gold in singles. I was so happy with my doubles golds. I thought, ‘If my career’s over, I have my gold medal and now I have everything.’ Now I have singles, doubles, actually everything there is to win in tennis. Where do I go from here?”

Serena is the first player in tennis history to have won the Golden Slam in both singles and doubles, regardless of gender. Her incredible achievement started in 2001, when, after winning in doubles at the Sydney Olympics in 2000, she completed her Golden Slam in tennis. Serena’s supremacy also carried over to the singles court, where she won the coveted gold medal at the London 2012 Olympics.
