"I miss you," Venus told Serena, who didn't compete this year because she is expecting her first child. "I tried my best to do the same things you do, but I think there will be other opportunities, I do."

A supportive audience greeted her words with plenty of cheers and applause.

Venus was defeated by Garbiñe Muguruza in the finals on Saturday in a 7-5, 6-0 victory. Muguruza lost to Serena in the 2015 competition.
