Venus Accepts Wild Card for Parma

Venus Williams comes to Parma as a wildcard with a 2-4 record in 2021.

The former World No. 1, who has a staggering 49 WTA titles, had a woeful 2020 when she won just once and lost seven singles matches. Her only win in 2020 came against Viktoria Azarenka at the Top Seed Open.

Williams, however, started off well in 2021, defeating Arantxa Rus in the first round of the Yarra Valley Classic before going down to Petra Kvitova in a closely fought two-set contest. She also won her first round match at the Australian Open, defeating Kirsten Flipkens before being outplayed by Sara Errani in the next round.

In her next two tournaments, Williams couldn’t go beyond the first rounds, falling to Zarina Diyas in Miami and Jennifer Brady in Madrid.

For Williams, winning a 50th title seems unlikely, but the seven-time Grand Slam champion will be looking to making a winning start in the tournament, however she has a tough first-round match against an opponent who has dominated their previous encounters.
