Tennis star Venus Williams was at fault for a June 9 car crash that led to the death of the passenger in the other vehicle two weeks later, according to a police report that was first obtained by TMZ Sports. Palm Beach Gardens police said the crash remains under investigation.
Williams' 2010 Toyota Sequoia SUV drove into an intersection in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., near her residence.
I felt so relaxed that I didn't even warm up properly. In the end I won my game against Serena 6-1 but by the time we were at the net shaking hands, Venus was on court, ready to have a go against me as well. However, if you've been playing on the men's tour there are certain shots you can play that are going to put them in difficulty.
Try and put a lot spin on the ball - I was hitting the ball with a degree of spin they don't face week-in, week-out. In our match, they were putting shots into the corners that on the women's tour would be winners but I was able to return them.
"This is an unfortunate accident and Venus expresses her deepest condolences to the family who lost a loved one." According to the police report, the 37-year-old Williams was at fault for violating the right of way of the other vehicle. The police report says she was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
Zohar Sharon can count on having the company of two others when he takes to the golf course — his caddy and his guide dog.
On March 7, the Russian-born tennis champ stood before the press and admitted that she had failed a drug test, having tested positive for meldonium — a medication banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency since the beginning of 2016 that aids in blood flow and can give an edge when it comes to cardiovascular performance.
Rory Mc Ilroy and Caroline Wozniacki started dating in 2011, the same year Mc Ilroy won the U. Caroline Wozniacki caddies for Rory Mc Ilroy during the 2013 Par-3 Contest before the Masters.
His “fans” thought he was singer Harry Belafonte; Sharon signed anyway.) But things didn’t always look like they would end up this way. I told him I didn’t, and he took a shoe box and punched a hole in it, got a club and a ball and showed me how to golf right there,” Sharon recalled as he sat on the balcony of his Beverly Hilton Hotel room during a recent visit to Los Angeles.
Sharon sustained more injuries fighting in the 1973 Yom Kippur War and was completely blind by the time he turned 28. “Later, at home, I started practicing by placing an empty cup on the floor and a radio next to it, so I’d know which direction to hit the ball, and I got the hang of it.” Still, he almost gave up golf altogether before he met Shimshon Levy, who became his loyal caddie and close friend. We spend 16 hours a day together, 10 of them on the golf field,” Sharon said.
It was the 1998 Australian Open and the Williams sisters, Venus and Serena, had seen some of the male players practising.
On the basis of what they saw, they were convinced that they could beat a man ranked around 200 in the world and wanted to set up a game.
My training regime consisted of a leisurely round of golf in the morning followed by a couple of shandies. My first game of the afternoon, just a one-set match, was against Serena.
