Venus Williams keeps proving her critics wrong and that age “aint nothing but a number” as she put away tournament favourite away in straight sets, 6-3 7-5 in their Wimbledon qaurter-final. 

There was a lot of talk about Ostapenko leading up to the centre court qaurter-final, she was fearless, she possessed a mean forehand, which saw her win the 2017 French Open two months ago. 


Theres a vast age difference between the two players, Venus was competing in her first Wimbledon when Ostapenko was born.

She will now face the darling of Britain, Jo Konta in the semi-finals.
