“@Venuseswilliams never lost to Serena in practice. Vee was undefeated against the little Compton Pitbull. From 1991 to 1995 Richard Refused to have them ever play each other as he said they would play each other 30 times on the tour. He was wrong. They played 31. 19 TO 12 Goat,” he wrote.
The statement was an interesting one as Serena had a far superior record on the court in professional tennis while facing her elder sister where she won on 19 occasions in 31 meetings and suffered just 12 defeats.
