Richard Williams, Venus and Serena Williams

 

Venus and Serena’s father, Richard Williams, has been a tennis instructor and coach. He started training both his daughters when they were just four and a half years old.

 

 

Actually, according to some reports, Richard wasn’t always interested in tennis. However, things changed drastically when he saw a match of the French Open on his television screen. Initially, it was not the sport but the prize money of $40,000 that attracted and drew him towards it.

 

 

Richard Williams wasn't afraid to literally fight for his daughters

Richard started taking tennis lessons from a man known as ‘Old Whiskey’. Since he had a keen interest in football since his childhood and was even a player in Shreveport, athleticism and discipline were never a big problem for him. Thus, all this helped him to make a career in the sport.

Richard Williams has no qualms about protecting his daughters from media

 

As a coach, Richard has accomplished almost everything. While he helped both his daughters to win every doubles major, he also accomplished a Career Golden Slam with Serena.
