Palm Beach Gardens’ Venus Williams was bounced from the US Open in the second round yesterday, but she won one in the real estate game.

Home sale records show Williams made a tidy $96,000 on the sale of a pretty yellow colonial-style cottage in the Jupiter area of Abacoa.

Williams originally bought it in 2001 for her grandmother, Oralee Price.

    When I was a kid in the 70′s, my mom gave me a throw rug to put down in the hallway that looked exactly like her ill advised weave job. Did she put that on and look in the mirror and say “damn I look fine now !” ?

    You go girl. Just making money “hand over fist.” Yes, make that money work for you. You are blessed. Remember, to much is Given, much is required.I know you give back, so, please Ms. Williams, always give back, especially to the children, black, white, green, yellow or blue. A biggggg fan of yourself and your sister, Serena.
