Williams Sisters to arrive Nigeria Today ! Serena & Venus ace Naija .

Venus and Serena Williams – tennis’ most successful sisters – are expected in Nigeria today, for a four day tour of Lagos, the nation’s commercial capital.
The ladies are coming under the aegis of Breaking the Mould (BTM), an “African Women’s engagement initiative that will use national and international women ‘Mould Breakers’ to showcase how women have achieved greatness across various portfolios.

The tour which is expected to come to a close on November 2, will see Venus, 32, and her younger sibling, Serena, 31, addressing a press conference, attending a gala dinner, running a tennis clinic and finally facing off in an exhibition match.

A look at the itinerary of the sisters indicate they would attend a press conference tomorrow at the Ikoyi Club, Lagos, where they would also host a special tennis clinic for kids between the ages of 8 and 14.

On Thursday, the multiple tennis grand slam winners will dazzle at a glamorous gala night put together in their honour at the Federal Palace Hotel before appearing in an exhibition match at the Lagos Lawn Tennis Club on November 2.

Presently rated 24 and 3 respectively, by the Women Tennis Association (WTA) and Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP), it is expected that their visit to Lagos, Nigeria, will give tennis the much needed boost it deserves.
