Venus Williams Is Already Preparing for the Miami Open after She Had Sustained an Ankle Injury
Tennis superstar Venus Williams recently shared with fans in her Instagram Story one of her preparations for the prestigious Miami Open in Florida.
Venus Williams, considered one of the oldest female athletes in the tennis community, suffered a painful injury in February. But she is back for this month's Miami Open.
Williams, 40, recently gave her fans a glimpse of her training on Instagram Story. Despite her age, the tennis legend looked as inspired as ever to play her way back to the game.
Williams wore blue activewear and a blue cap as she performed her leg exercises in an open space. The tennis living legend captioned her post:
"Getting ready for the @miamiopen."
She ended her short message showing an arm and two hands emoji and tiny heart images. Williams also displayed her toned arms while in the middle of her workout.
The great snap showed another message that read, "act up from north, west, east, south." Williams' photo also suggested she has recovered from an injury.
It has been Williams' goal to win the Miami Open this year. In 2019, she lost the singles match in the tournament to Indian Wells champion Bianca Andreescu from Canada.
Williams suffered a right ankle injury at the Australian Open last month. Her unlucky situation contributed to her semi-final match loss to Italy's Sara Errani.

The Australian Open was Williams' 21st match, and it was also her 88th Grand Slam overall. She won seven singles titles, as well as 14 doubles titles, with her sister, Serena.
Serena reportedly pulled out from the game after having oral surgery.
Meanwhile, Serena shared a workout video on Instagram with her older sibling shortly after being quarantined because of the COVID-19 pandemic. She referred to her sister as "Coach Venus."
Her recent workout with her sister has provided them a priceless bond during the quarantine. Serena, 39, described their exercise as "intense."
The eight-time winner of the Miami Open expressed disappointment in withdrawing from the event. She said Miami was her special tournament because it was her home.
