Williams Sisters in Nigeria for Women's Rights


Multiple Grand Slam winners Venus and Serena Williams took part in a coaching session with young children in Lagos on Wednesday during their four-day trip to Nigeria.

The sisters, who are in the West African nation this week to back ‘Breaking The Mould’, an initiative aimed at promoting women’s tennis and gender equality on the continent, will also stage an exhibition match against each other before heading to South Africa on November 2.

The Williams, who between them hold 22 major singles titles, have faced off in 23 competitive fixtures since 1998, with Serena winning 13 of these matches.
