The new documentary film on the Williams sisters, “Venus and Serena” (pictured left and right), provides a dramatic and provocative behind-the-scenes look at lives of the two sisters who have dominated the women’s tennis world for more than a decade.
Fans and critics alike will develop a deeper understanding of the discipline and determination that recently helped the Williams sisters lead the United States to victory in the Fed Cup World Groupplayoffs in Delray Beach, Fla., guaranteeing America a spot in 2014. The film, which was made available on iTunes earlier this month, is scheduled to debut in theaters on May 10th.
“My parents told me I’d be No. 1 in the world,” Venus said in a clip of the film made by ABC News veterans Michelle Major and Maiken Baird. “I was brainwashed.”
If that is brainwashing, then perhaps more parents need to follow the lead of Richard Williams andOracene Price, who coached their daughters to the top, Major told NewsOne. The film shows them doing drills with their father, which included running and throwing tennis rackets.
