Despite years of protesting by tennis pioneer Billie Jean King and others, in the French Open and Wimbledon still refused to pay women's and men's players equally through all rounds.
In , Williams met with officials from both tournaments, arguing that female tennis players should be paid as much as male tennis players.
The turning point was an essay published in The Times on the eve of Wimbledon in In it, Williams accused Wimbledon of being on the "wrong side of history", writing:.
I feel so strongly that Wimbledon's stance devalues the principle of meritocracy and diminishes the years of hard work that women on the tour have put into becoming professional tennis players.
I believe that athletes — especially female athletes in the world's leading sport for women — should serve as role models.
The message I like to convey to women and girls across the globe is that there is no glass ceiling. My fear is that Wimbledon is loudly and clearly sending the opposite message Wimbledon has argued that women's tennis is worth less for a variety of reasons; it says, for example, that because men play a best of five sets game they work harder for their prize money.
Secondly, tennis is unique in the world of professional sports. No other sport has men and women competing for a grand slam championship on the same stage, at the same time.
So in the eyes of the general public the men's and women's games have the same value. Wimbledon has justified treating women as second class because we do more for the tournament.
The argument goes that the top women — who are more likely also to play doubles matches than their male peers — earn more than the top men if you count singles, doubles and mixed doubles prize money.
So the more we support the tournament, the more unequally we should be treated! But doubles and mixed doubles are separate events from the singles competition.
Is Wimbledon suggesting that, if the top women withdrew from the doubles events, that then we would deserve equal prize money in singles? I intend to keep doing everything I can until Billie Jean's original dream of equality is made real.
It's a shame that the name of the greatest tournament in tennis, an event that should be a positive symbol for the sport, is tarnished.
Williams herself became the first woman to benefit from the equalization of prize money at Wimbledon, as she won the tournament and was awarded the same amount as the male winner Roger Federer.
It premiered on July 2, Williams competed in a "Battle of the Sexes", along with her sister Serena Williams , against Karsten Braasch at the Australian Open , who at the time was ranked rd.
A decade and a half younger than Braasch, who was described by one journalist as "a man whose training regime centered around a pack of cigarettes and more than a couple bottles of ice cold lager.
In , at age 31, Yetunde Price , Venus and Serena Williams' older half-sister, was shot dead in Compton, California , near the courts on which the sisters once practiced.
Price was the Williams sisters' personal assistant. The Williams family issued this statement shortly after the death: "We are extremely shocked, saddened and devastated by the shooting death of our beloved Yetunde.
She was our nucleus and our rock. She was a personal assistant, confidante, and adviser to her sisters, and her death leaves a void that can never be filled.
Our grief is overwhelming, and this is the saddest day of our lives. On December 13, , Williams received her associate degree in fashion design from the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale.

This was a very winnable bid for a sixth Wimbledon -- her first title here since At her age, saddled with Sjogren's syndrome, an autoimmune disorder that can sap her strength, would it be her last great chance?
When it was over, Williams gave every indication that the match will not dim her plans to continue playing topflight tennis.
She moves now to a ranking of ninth in the world, up from 17 at the end of last year. It is lonely for her on tour without her little sister, and she's planning to still be there when Serena comes back next year from having her first child.
On Centre Court, after watching Muguruza lift the winner's platter, Venus said she tries her best to mimic the winning ways of a sibling with 23 major titles.
About an hour later, in a hushed press room, she sat at a podium and grimly addressed an international collection of reporters.
As she does so often, she offered the trimmest of answers to the softest and most straightforward of questions. Venus paused for a moment and then offered a reply that blew past the question entirely.
She refused to address fatigue, illness, injury or any of the other potential reasons why she looked out of sorts.
Williams has long been one of the WTA's leaders, rightly praised for leading the fight for equal pay. But she is also a closed book.
Off court, her most revealing moment at this tournament came when she briefly broke down when asked about the recent Florida pile-up that led to the death of an elderly man.
Other than that, she gave not an inch. Once Wimbledon was over, as thoughtful as she is known to be in private, she could have offered sincere introspection, as many other top players have.
