Venus Williams has proved once again that she has no intentions of stopping the family's dominant reign. On Sunday, the tennis titan won the Luxembourg Open, beating out Monica Niculescu of Romania to win her first WTA tournament in over two years. This win marked her 44th singles victory for the 32-year-old. 

Williams put rumors about her inevitable retirement to rest by playing a solid game with evident confidence, ending a title drought brought on mainly by injuries and illness. Now ranked No. 41, she and her sister Serena reinvigorated their renowned doubles reputation when they won a Grand Slam doubles title at Wimbledon earlier this year and then a took home doubles gold at the London Olympics.
