Venus Williams still looks up to her sister, Serena Williams.
The 37-year-old tennis champ was defeated by Garbiñe Muguruza at the 2017 Wimbledon finals on Saturday in London. After the match, Williams took the loss with much grace and delivered a sweet message to her 35-year-old sister.
"I miss you," Venus told Serena in a video shared by Wimbledon's official Twitter account. "I tried my best to do the same things you do, but I think there will be other opportunities. I do."
Serena, who is pregnant with her first child, was absent from the match, but their mother, Oracene Price, was in attendance to support Venus. The pro-athlete made history on Saturday as the oldest woman to complete in the Wimbledon finals.
After the match, Venus received praise and admiration from her fans on social media.
Venus recently made headlines when news broke out that she was involved in a fatal car crash last month that took the life of Jerome Barson, a 78-year-old Florida man.
"I'm completely speechless," the tennis star said during a press conference last week. For more on the tragic incident, watch below.
