Venus Williams burts into tears: 'I'm completely speachless'

Venus Williams burts into tears: 'I'm completely speachless'

The daughter of 78-year-0ld victim Jarome Barson's daughter Audrey Gassner-Dunayer has accused Williams of being reckless and careless in documents filed in Palm Beach County. "Completely devastating, speechless. I am just..." she was quoted saying in a Fox News article.

The five-time Wimbledon champion returned shortly afterwards to finish off the compulsory media briefing.

"You can't prepare for everything", Williams said.

She was focused enough on court against Mertens, but it quickly became clear the press conference wasn't going to be so easy to deal with.

The championship's "all white" rule is time old, with the All England Lawn Tennis Club insisting that players must wear a exclusively white outfit, going on to state that 'any undergarments that either are or can be visible during play (including due to perspiration) must also be completely white except for a single trim of colour no wider than one centimetre (10mm)'.

Barson said she was unable to avoid crashing into Williams.

Earlier in the news conference, Williams said: "Tennis is still the love of my life". It gives me joy.

"This is my 20th Wimbledon. But I'm grateful to be here and to play".

The accident remains under investigation and Williams has not been charged.

A police report indicated that she was at fault in the accident that occurred in Florida last month.

When she was asked how she was coping mentally, Williams added: "I have no idea what tomorrow will bring".

A couple was inside the other vehicle, Lisa Barson, 68, who was driving, told the police she had a green light when Williams cut in front of her.

Canadian player Eugenie Bouchard got in trouble for having a black bra on show a few years back and Russian player Anna Kournikova was asked to remove her black shorts in a past Wimbledon game, forced to play in her coach's shorts instead. "That's what I've learned".

"I miss her a lot".
