November 23, 2011
With a broad smile, a big applause and a few words in Spanish, enough to understand that they wanted to give thanks for the invitation to Colombia, the American sisters Serena and Venus Williams today in Medellín gave a tennis extravaganza in which all won.
“We are very happy to be here in Colombia for the first time, thanks to Grand Slam Productions, and thanks to all Colombia,” said the winner of the game, Venus Williams.
Although it was an exhibition match, the tennis world exnúmero showed a great professionalism after you take it with all the seriousness of the case, to the point of view at times a bit disjointed Serena for a bad point or a double fault. However, during the pendency of the match both players showed the eight thousand people who came to the sports arena, why continue to be part of the best players in the world.
A little more relaxed in the game was Venus that who supported most of the time by the public, a fact which motivated enough to prevail in the first set 6-4, taking advantage of some blunders of his sister. Serena, meanwhile, had started the game with a serious expression, which eventually became diluted, so the second set was a little more close, to the point of going to “tie break”, which finally Venus reimposed 7-5.
After the game, smiles and applause mutual between players and assistants took over the Plaza de Toros, and the players were happy to be first not only in Colombia but also in South America. And the Medellin public thanked him, because they could be very close to them to the players who have won 82 tournaments between the WTA.
