Venus Williams had a fantastic 2017 despite not being able to lift a Grand Slam title – she reached the finals of Australian Open and Wimbledon, semifinals of US Open and the fourth round of French Open. She didn’t win a title in the year but her consistent play led to the American returning to the top-5 ranking. On Sunday, she couldn’t add to her WTA Finals title in 2008 with Caroline Wozniacki proving far too good in the end. The Dane won her maiden WTA Finals title in the process following a runner up finish in the past. The 6-4, 6-4 win in the decider takes her up to World No 3 with Simona Halep finishing as the No 1 player.
