Serena and Venus Williams are considered the greatest pair of siblings in tennis history. Icon Chris Evert met the two for the first time 30 years ago – and can still remember the first impression to this day.

Impressive meeting: The 13-time Grand Slam winner Chris Evert still remembers the first meeting with Venus and Serena Williams, reports “Tennis World USA”. “The first thing that struck everyone was the energy, the energy in their games.”

Short, clear, compact

Great talents at a young age: Evert was also impressed by the sisters’ technique. “The quiet athleticism that they have and the way they move and everything. And that they were only 12, 13 years old, they weren’t afraid to go on the net and play a volley. Her game was very developed for her age.”
