WTA superstar Venus Williams has lauded and recognized tennis player Leylah Fernandez, believing the Canadian has the finest demeanor on the court.
Fernandez rose to prominence after being runner-up at the 2021 US Open, enthralling the New York audience with her tenacity and bold approach. Despite only winning one championship since then, the 20-year-old has made a reputation for herself on the WTA tour.
Despite the fact that Fernandez slipped to World No.88 in the rankings, Williams reveals that she cheers for the Canadian every time she takes the court.
“She has the greatest attitude on the court. Unbelievable competitor,” said the seven-time Grand Slam champion. “I think she’s so good for the game. When you watch her play, you feel like you’re a part of it. You feel like you’re a part of something. She gives you that energy, you want to root for her. Every time I see her on the court I’m always rooting for her because you feel something for that.”
