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.

In , at age 31, Yetunde Price , Venus and Serena Williams's 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: 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.
