Five-time Wimbledon champion Venus Williams has been spotted relaxing around the Croatian resort of Zadar. Edged out in the second round of the mixed doubles this month, the former world No.1, now 42, is thought to have flown into Croatia by private jet.
PIXSELL photographer Šime Zelić snapped Venus as she was dining on the summer terrace of the seafront Foša restaurant with her coach, Eric Hechtman. Also the recently appointed trainer of Venus’ equally successful younger sister Serena, Hechtman has been the hitting partner for Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer.
Venus Williams, whose upbringing was the subject of the recent Oscar-winning film King Richard, is training at Višnjik centre in Zadar city centre. It’s not yet known how long she will stay in Croatia.
