Venus reveals cooking meals for Serena in their younger days
In an interview with Oprah back in 2003, the celebrity asked the youngsters about their cooking abilities while on Tour. Back then, Serena was a 21-year-old, following the footsteps of her elder sister Venus. Serena revealed that her elder sister would look out for her, cooking meals for the sisters after their training. She said, “Venus cooks more than I do because she still looks out for me.”

“Once, when we were younger, I ran out of lunch money, and we were both hungry. Venus said, “Serena, you take my money—you go eat.” And it was fried chicken day at school! I think she had the peanut butter and jelly. Sorry, Venus,” she added.

Two decades on, Serena will return to Wimbledon after a year’s absence having won more Grand Slam titles than any other player actively. With 23 Grand Slams, Serena is only short of the record held by Margaret Court.
